It seems as if Japanese blogger Mac Otakara can predict the future when it comes to Apple products. He seemed to know just which features the iPhone 6 would feature, and now he has a few words about iPhone 7.
Apple's more recent trend is all about getting slimmer, and in order to make the iPhone 7 even thinner, they are going to supposedly get rid of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Instead, you will have to get a plug in case you want to use your old-fashioned wired headphones. The iPhone 7, however, is rumored to come with new lightning port Earpods.
Others speculate that an adapter might not even be available, and therefore the iPhone 7 owner will have to buy an all new pair of Apple-approved headphones to use with the new iPhone. Having said that, all iPhone's provide headphones with purchase - so hopefully you would only need to shell out if you misplaced your original pair.
While the more expensive, higher-end headphones might give you more clear digital music, it would probably use up a lot of power from the iPhone's battery, especially if they're the expensive noise-canceling kind.
The removal of the headphone jack would mean that the iPhone 7 would be 1 mm slimmer than the iPhone 6. In my opinion, the phone is slim as it is (don't you remember how many people would break their iPhones by putting them in their back pockets?), so these changes personally don't really appeal to me at all.
Apple likes to continually change their phones as well as their accessories. While it may be a very smart business idea, as a consumer I am beginning to get more than annoyed with it all.
