With the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models rumored to be launched in September 2016, tech analysts race themselves in finding new data about the two devices. The most recent news claims Apple ditches headphone jack for a super slim iPhone 7.
The Cupertino giant did not confirm any of the news that have been recently disclosed. Nevertheless, the Japanese website Mac Otakara, whose reliability has been verified many times before, is convinced the future Apple smartphones will no longer have a headphone jack.
This because the smartphones maker wants the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to be the slimmest models on the market. By removing the 3.5mm headphone jack, the developer will diminish the dimensions of the phone by at least 1mm. Instead, Apple plans to use the Lightning port for users’ headphones, which will most likely require Bluetooth connectivity.
The decision to do away with regular headphone jacks will most likely revolutionize the smartphone audio system. Sure, Apple is not the only company to make such a change. HTC’s G1 model was the first Android-based smartphone to remove headphone jacks, but we expect Apple to take things a little further and, hopefully, provide a new audio experience to iPhone fans.
The Cupertino-based company was the first to provide users an elevated music experience. The developer won a good reputation after launching the famous iPod in 2001. This past experience most certainly enriched Apple’s knowledge on audio systems and it is safe to assume that the tech developer can understand users’ preferences.
As for the iPhone 7 models, they have been rumored to be launched in September 2016, but the exact date is yet unknown. As usual, tech analysts rely on Apple’s patents to determine the features that the new models will have.
So far, it has been established that the seventh model of iPhone will be compatible with wireless charging and will sport a Touch ID screen. Some self-repairing features might have been added on the smartphone, as well, but none of these rumors have been truly confirmed.
No talks have been made yet in relation to the price of the iPhone 7, but we don’t expect this model to be a cheap one. Some websites have speculated that the smartphone could be launched earlier, that is, somewhere in summer 2016.
