Anonymous, 09 Jan 2016that everybody will follow and blame apple for copying them Exactly, like Smartwatches, or Apple Music, or 6 +, or wait Healthkit, or wait wait there's more Apple Pay. They all copy each other, get over it. :D (Apple is today's Thomas Edison, they patent things they haven't invented :D)
Vj14, 09 Jan 2016Port or not, I'm buying iPhone 7 :)You are a typical fanboy. :D
Now we're talking ! If Apple could make some reliable, good quality (no doubt in that) and long living wireless earbuds...I'm sold, unless they work with other OSs. (which is doubtful)
This is something I've been waiting for years, but the existing products are either expensive or not on a level where they should be, after working on them for so long.
It doesn't matter people will buy the new IPhone, whether it has audio port or not.
People buy the battery case from Apple even though it doesn't allow you to plug in the audio jack. (There is a hole for that but it is not properly tested. It is small that you cant connect an audio jack)
Is the plan to just raise energy bills for everyone? You have to charge everything these days... Wireless speakers, headphones, portable batteries, keyboards, mice, etc, etc etc.
Amy, 09 Jan 2016Ugh, finally got rid of my iphone 6! Good timing too, I'll never go for an iphone again unless... moreI Got the 6+for the screen size.
Got rid of it ASAP; iOS is the most restrictive mobile OS; and its just pathetic.
Got me the Z5 Premium.

Anonymous, 09 Jan 2016no head phone jack no going to buy the next iPhone Yes you will..
To be usefull it would need wireless charging while you use it... for now I do not hear about such. I would also add then hq mics and rec possibility, nothing beats binaural recording.
lk.123, 09 Jan 2016if you cant afford apple, then nobody is forcing you to buy it like me, i cant afford it. but ... moreThe problem is that Chinese makers often try to copy Apple too, so those who don't want something like Apple have little choice nowadays. Apple makes some good tech in a sense that it works, but the designs and usability are getting worse. Check this article: http://www.fastcodesign.com/3053406/how-apple-is-giving-design-a-bad-name
if you cant afford apple, then nobody is forcing you to buy it like me, i cant afford it. but really they come up with good tech. its crazy when other oems comes up copying from apple. if you can afford but dont want to buy cos of pricing/features theres lot of cheap chinese devices out there!
harlekkin, 09 Jan 2016Well, guess what? Apple does it and soon Samsung & Co. will follow. You can bet on that, y... moreHaving to charge your headphones is not exactly an advancement, more like solving a problem that doesn't exist. Yes I'm sure that iPhone-wannabes will follow, but I'm also sure that stereos, computers, studio equipment, home theaters and hi-fi components will stick with 3.5 or 6.3 mm plugs.
But I have a feeling Apple is going to try and make something "iconic" - for a while it was a sign of prestige to have white earbuds and white wires hanging from your ears. Now maybe it's time for something new. Not better, just new.
