New rumors about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 7 Could Do Away With The Earphone Jack


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is expected to launch iPhone 7 by September next year. The hugely anticipated device will come on the back of the blockbuster release of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. Apple has already divulged some details about the device and experts have also weighed in on the possible enhancements and features on the phone. It is to be noted that most of what is reported is strictly speculator and based on informed guesses.

So here are the expected features of iPhone 7. The phone is expected to be waterproof and have a massive 3 GB RAM. The device will also probably sport a slick Sapphire display and may have wireless charging technology. Apple is determined to make the most impressive iteration of its blockbuster iPhone series and plenty of other upgrades are also expected.

One of the rumors that is gaining traction is that the new iPhone 7 will be the slimmest one yet and will be a full 1 mm thinner than iPhone 6. It is speculated that to achieve those dimensions, the manufacturer will have to let go off the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack. Apple will probably go for the all in one Lightning connector. This might be a problem for people who are used to the standard 3.5 mm jack however it is speculated that the Lightning connector will have backward compatibility with headphones using the 3.5 mm jack.

If the rumors about Lightning connectors are true then it is also very plausible that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will come out with its Earpods, the company has acquired Beats Electronics and already has the technical capability to produce earphones. Removing the headphone jack will also lead to various third party manufacturers making their Lightning compatible earphones.

The latest rumor about the removal of the earphone Jack is to date the most controversial one about the highly secretive iPhone 7. The move will most probably anger many users who will find their earphones useless. However, people have broken from habit in the past when faced with the superior alternative, it is to be seen how this one works out.
