Why Apple will not abandon the audio Jack in the iPhone 7
Recent speculations that Apple’s 3.5 mm audio connector in future iPhone 7 does not have any serious grounds. And there is direct evidence.
New iPhone 2016 model year should be a truly innovative device not only in hardware but also in appearance. Typically, Apple updates the design of their smartphones every two years, but because “seven” promises to be a true embodiment of the most daring design fantasies johnny Quince and his players. But the rejection of audiogate is too much even for the innovators from Cupertino.
