Taking The Headphone Jack Off Phones Is Stupid

Nilay Patel on the rumoured headphone-less iPhone 7:

Another day, another rumor that Apple is going to ditch the headphone jack on the next iPhone in favor of sending out audio over Lightning. Or another phone beats Apple to the punch by ditching the headphone jack in favor of passing out audio over USB-C. What exciting times for phones! We’re so out of ideas that actively making them shittier and more user-hostile is the only innovation left.

I could go into this topic in great detail, but I can’t really remember the last time I used the headphone jack on my iPhone. My Mac is a different story.
