TechBuzz: Apple Wants To Nix The Headphone Port

Oh, how far we've come from the Music Lovers phone. 

So basically, Apple really wants to make things complicated with us. That's what USA Today is sharing, at least. According to the USA Today article, a Japanese blog that has been spot on so far with all the predictions of the new iPhone releases leaked the potential of Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the popular smartphone.

What does that mean for us? Non-cheap headphones, using the lightning port as a headphone jack with special headphones, or utilizing the Bluetooth function with wireless headphones. Other predictions say that you'll have to buy a 3.5mm headphone to Lightning port if you want to continue using your headphones.

So how does it charge if you've got your headphones in? Who knows.

The article also states that the iPhone 7 has been rumored to be glove friendly, and working on a water resistant model like it's Android competitors. Still, as far as music lovers are concerned, we're still more concerned about the whole headphones thing more than anything else.

What do you think? Do you hope Apple changes it's mind? Or do you welcome the idea? Let us know.
