http://9to5mac.com/2015/11/27/iphone-7-headphone-jack-lightning/

It would be a very appley thing to do. 3.5mm jacks are thick and deep. And apple has never been one to support old technology when there is room for improvement. Will kinda suck though as i have a stockpile of apple buds that will be useless. I guess i can sell them to poorfags that wish to look like they have an iPhone.

So what? A third party adapter will come out for a few dollars

i am a apple fan and let me tell you, being an apple user is actually a great thing. we have beautiful products and we have ugly products. just like any company. tim cook for 1 is a great person, makes great products, and takes care of every one that is in his customer base and is glad to do it, and for that he has people that love him around him. also, apple products are one of the best profucts you can have. sometimes they can be really restricted, but they will take care of you no matter what, and the genius bar will help you buy what ever it is that you need. as long as your not a selfish shithead. Also, we all have great jobs, lots of money and an online community that we all love and helps us eat shit out of our hands.

>you will never have an iphone5plus
It would be nice if they just kept the thickness of the iphone 5 but just made it bigger, I don't need a paper thin phone. That and the rounded edge of the iphone 6 looks like shit, soon it will look like a bar of soap.
>>
>>51603295
I care about thinness to a point, especially in laptops, but iPhones were thin enough ages ago. I'd rather bigger batteries.

i love the 6/6S design. the old blocky ones look super dated now. I also love the screen size. i had a 6 first, and now have a 6S plus. I can't even tell by looking at it that is is bigger than my 5.

I know why apple a keep making it thinner: Less materials, cheaper, and more aesthetic appeal.
But at this point i'd just rather better speakers, better battery, flush camera, etc

Jobs would not have allowed pic-related. He would have 32Gb as the base storage.

>>51603609
We just have a different taste in aesthetics, I personally prefer the blocky design. I mean I own a Memepad as well.

>>51603634
But, I'm not going to lie, I liked Jobs aesthetics better.

He never would have allowed two different sizes of phones in the same generation.

How can you say that with a straight face? Jobs had different sized iPads, different sized macs, different sized MacBooks, etc. Jobs was smart. Making different sized iPhones for different people's preferences is smart.
>>
>>51603800
But never with the phones

He wanted the phones to be a uniform size for each generation so people would always recognize an iPhone
>>
>>51603831
His mind was not frozen in time though. He was a smart guy, i'm sure his opinions on things change all the time.
>>
>>51603831
i understand respecting jobs' vision but the market trends show people want bigger phones, the 6plus was the best selling iphone of all time

the 4s was simply too small, the 5 was okay but it was still too small. 6 and 6 plus is a good compromise

If Apple does do this, it will be hilarious to see all the Apple shills try to explain how it doesn't suck and is an improvement.

it is an improvement, and it will suck also. Should be able to sell my old apple bugs for decent prices though

Being forced into using lightning or Bluetooth is an improvement how?

Thinner, flimsier phones with worse battery life is an improvement how?

Not using your favorite headphones is a improvement how?

Printer and other peripheral connection tech has advanced considerably since 1994.

Headphones have advanced to Bluetooth at the expense of needing a battery or power jack.

Why would anyone think those two things are similar?
>>
>>51604305
printers moves from a huge parallel port connection to USB or even wirelesss. Headphones are now going to move from a huge 3.5mm jack to a lightning connector or wireless. Deal with it old-timer

you are the kind of guy that only uses stuff when it's reinvented by applel.
usb phones (integrated dacs) have existed for more than a decade now, why is applel enforcing a non standard connector instead of using usb c? (usb c -> usb a -> phones)
please go shill for your walled monopoly elsewhere

Wireless would be fucking great if you didn't have too worry about charging them all the fucking time.

>>
>>51604434
I use anything that is the best. Usually this is Apple stuff in any product market they are in. So you would like apple to change their lightning connector again to usb c, a few years after chasing it from the old one? apple are not a monopoly, you use them if you like them, you don't use them if you don't like them. The walls are just there to keep out retards. due to the walls i can do things like pay for an app once and have it on my phone, watch, tablet, laptop, desktop, and tv.

I can actually understand people disliking phablets because of their size (not that I agree with them necessarily) but boy you need to be a huge pussy not to handle any phone that's less than 11mm thick. pic related, phones for men with an actual penis between their legs.

What if the adapter has the new lighting connector, a 5 cm cable, and then a female 3.5 plug? That would make it part of the cable.

Same reason recent Macbooks have been built around having little to no air cooling, and just being built off of throttling:

Apple's run out of engineering feats that can actually help the end-user, so they're just making up new ones for the sake of making up new ones

>And apple has never been one to support old technology when there is room for improvement.
There is technologically nothing wrong with 3.5mm TRS. Apple just wants to make their own shit so they can sell you a product at a markup. Mark my words this new connector will be more prone to breaking

Why does this matter anymore? I bought a $29 Android phone from the grocery store yesterday and it runs all the apps and games you could ever want, even Apple Music. Yes it might stutter and lag more than a $1529 iPhone 6S Plus, why do people even give a shit about such a tiny occurrence?
>>
>>51604836
>3.5mm
not only is the port much bigger than the lightning port, changing headphones to lighting eliminates the 3.5mm port completely

how?

the iphone is 7.1mm thick

the that's 3.6mm of used space by the iphone.. it's nowhere near 3.5mm thick

I have a xperia z5c and it is the perfect size. thick without being chunky, squared,and weighty. I never had an iphone, but it feels similar to the older generations of iphones which fucking nailed the size and comfort.

I've been stuck with Apple for a few years because my Nissan's audio system only connects with Apple shit as having an aux port was just too easy for those Japanese assholes.

If they remove the standard audio port and make me depend on the fucking horrid Lightning Cable even more that breaks more often than any cable I've had in my life I'll pay the money to change my car's sound system and go to Android, fuck this.
