Apple is just weeks away from unveiling the new iPhone 7 (or will it be the iPhone 6se???), with one highly controversial change: it’ll be shipping the handsets out sans headphone jack. Not so much a rumor as it is an unconfirmed reality at this point, removing the 3.55mm headphone port means those of us with expensive headphones or earbuds are SOL -- including, it turns out, Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak.
In an interview with The Australian Financial Review, Wozniak waxed poetic about his cushy earbuds, which are custom ear implants that "fit in so comfortably, I can sleep on them and everything. And they only come out with one kind of jack, so I'll have to go through the adaptor."
We feel your pain, Woz. Apple's decision will undoubtedly result in a ton of tossed electronics (not so great for the environment), forcing consumers to dole out cash for new Bluetooth headphones or clunky adaptors. "That's going to tick off a lot of people," said Wozniak.
Indeed, The Verge called removing the headphone jack "user-hostile and stupid." There's even an online petition over 300,000 signatures strong to #SaveJack, and we certainly have our own list of demands for the new iPhone 7.
