Sorry apple but I will switch to another smartphone and I will keep my, Bowers& Wilkins, audio-technica and focal earphones. Adaptor? I dont like to carry something more in my pockets just to help you earn more money. If they dont come back with the jack on iphone 8 , iphone 6 will be the last iphone for me ;). I already started eyeing the LG V20 with 4 DACs.

DU30, 25 Sep 2016Lol , best comment ever.. OMG! The President is reading blogs on GSMArena!
I wait some tech guy youtuber, to open the iPhone7 and drill and connect smaller audio jack. There is a place for that in the fake speaker hole. Even 3.5'' if modify it shorter.
It would be a hit!!!!
(not like this drilling hole joke video)

Now those iboys are more like football team supporters. Even if their team is weaker and looser, they will scream and fight for their team and call it the best.
The result is obvious, most people would prefer stays with 3.5mm jack. Knowing this apple still removing the jack!! I hope other manufacturer take benefit from apple moves by not following it.
Tooth.less, 25 Sep 2016The only people who talks shits about iphone are the ones who doesn't own themi used symbian, iOS and android, when i used the iphone, i got really frustrated cuz couldnt share and manage my files as i could with symbian or android, i needed to conects to my pc (just my pc, not any pc..., to make the things worse) and then manage my files, with my 100 bucks nokia i can share everything by bluetooth and dont need a pc to do anything.
ironic, a "smartphone" needing a PC to do all you want...., we are in 2016, c mon....

that 46%, represents the people like me, that still want to use a truly 3W of power handling headphone with extremely deep bass that punchs you in the face with each bass sound.
Tooth.less, 25 Sep 2016a sane informed people would know how to jailbreak an iphone and customize it better than andr... moreYeah that's true... i use both android and ios...
Cydia platform makes it more easier to tweak ios in case of starters
I think it's great. It honestly was a relic. For a moment I was afraid that Apple won't do it but did it anyhow. Similar past transitions met with equal decries but they were *all* proved successful. The abandonment of floppies, the abandonment of CDs, the death of flash to cite a few.
Sometimes the old has to die to give place for the new. It's always a good idea to abandon old ideas. One port to rule them all I say, and eventually go completely cordless even...
Da Vince, 26 Sep 2016dont they have wireless charging? why has apple havent done this yet?Because will decrease the profit.
Last year they didn't even put OIS on iphone6S, for the same reason.
BTW why should Apple give them things, if they buy anyhow, happily ?
3.5mm jack is great, because can use many kind of earphone and headphone more than this still can use wireless headphones. But lightning just a pre-mature tech.
DU30, 25 Sep 2016Lol , best comment ever.. How could it be the best comment, when is not true at all.
BTW Apple didn't remove the jack, to lead you to the future, or to make you feel better(because it's worse now)
Apple just want to make profit from licensing the Lightning.
Now was the moment to slap apple on the face, but you are not so courageous like Them. LOL
dont they have wireless charging? why has apple havent done this yet?
Tooth.less, 25 Sep 2016lol doesn't matter if you cant use it :v It matters , because Samsung already replaced most of them. And goes on.
So, soon you too, will have the chance to have and enjoy the best tech, most functional, and most beautiful phone on the Planet, that even has audio jack
