And the issue isn't whether it's possible, if it's necessary to have two ports on a phone when one port can do all things. It's a waste of space for most phones. There will still be phones produced with 3.5 mm ports, so if the 3.5 mm port is important to you, buy a phone with that. For everyone else there are phones without it that use the limited space more efficiently.
Oh, and you don't need dongles unless you want to use 3.5 mm headphones. You can just get USB-C headphones.

Not to mention the medical ones.
The major companies pay people with degrees (that you would believe) to keep their mouths shut and discredit everything about it.
Yeah, this is the realm of conspiracy theories because nobody has the guts to say it. We've all seen movies based on real facts where stuff like this is covered and hidden from the world. But, years later they will eventually pop. Sadly, when it's too late.
All the car manufacturers are lying about the emissions, what makes you think other companies don't. It's a dirty word we're living in..
FinnishInquisition, 22 Jan 2018Laptops and tablets don't have the same space constraints as smartphones.So? Many manufacturers have figured out how to have a 3.5mm jack and give everyone water/dust resistance. There's really no excuse not to have it on a modern device, except to lock people into ecosystems, which benefits the company, not the consumer. I'm not loyal to any company. I go for what I want. Since I still value a headphone jack, I'm more than likely going to get a phone with a headphone jack. The dongle is trash. All USB-C is not created equal. BT is great for the gym, bad for everything else.

All these don't have a 3.5 mm headphone jack, yet they are only IP67......
Sony Z5 (released in 2015) already had IP68 and 3.5 mm jack. So clearly, the others are lying.
Now I just hope Sony won't remove the 3.5 mm jack as this article predicts..

It's like someone is dictating them to make their phones certain way and they have no choice but to obey. Lack of 3.5mm jack is hurting anyone, more or less, except for Apple. And 18:9 aspect ratio is hated by at least 50% of users, so why not more diversity and why is nobody trying to win all the people who hate the current trends? It's not like manufacturers like HTC or Sony will become Apple, so since they are failing anyway, why not at least try to be firrent than the others and win customers in the process?
That's pure insanity. Unless there's indeed more than it meets the eye.

Yeah, lots of space, right... The 3.5 mm port does not fit into an iPhone 7.
You can fit a car into a smartphone if you design it for that. But people want thinner devices, nicer designs, waterproofing and better battery lives. To achieve that you need to cut out the useless components. The 3.5 mm port functionality is already filled by USB-C/Lightning, so it has to go.

As long as I'm able to use my portable headphone amp / DAC, I don't really care if the phone has the headphone jack or not. Can't really drive HD600's directly and my portable amp only has an USB-connector so I'm stuck with using adapters (USB-C - USB). My real portable in-ears are easy to drive, sound obviously gets better when I hook up the amp/DAC, so still going to go with that USB-adapter anyway.
The least they could do is to put 2 ports instead of one (charge+audio).
If they say it's a better replacement (and it's not, in no possible way), why should we have just one port...

It was proven that space is not a problem and 3.5mm jack can be added to the current iphones even by fans. If they can do it, then Apple can certainly do it too.
