Innovation has always been one of Apple's strongest suits. They did away with the floppy, Firewire and optical drives and brought in new ways to store, connect, and access files and digital content. Fast forward to today, and the same thing happens when they decide to remove USB ports on MacBooks and recently, the headphone jack.
Lack of a headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and future devices left those who used headphones and auxiliary cables as part of their everyday life suddenly inconvenient. In a way, this move forced people to go wireless and get Bluetooth headphones and speakers (if you haven't yet).
The headphone jack was removed in an unprecedented movement with the iPhone 7. The company decided to continue the trend of the iPhone 8, XS Max, XR and the latest iPhone X.
The simplicity of plugging an auxiliary cable into speakers becomes an exercise to turn on the device's Bluetooth connection, find the sound system and wait for both to synchronize. Yes, there may not be any wires involved, but some people like things okay and old-fashioned.
What the iPhone 7 contained was an adapter that plugs into the lightning gate so you could use the old 3.5mm dongle with headset or best auxiliary cable for cars.
It was a song song when Apple finally stopped the support and production of the older iPhone models, which had the 3.5mm connectors. Reason? Apple might have been tired of old technology and wanted to be the first to adapt to new ones.
Although many technical experts, companies and consumers may have thought of the omission a mistake, it also acted as an open window that enables better phone components, including a more powerful battery, higher resolution screen and other wireless means. The future can only be brighter.
