Apple's Terrible Plan To Ditch The Headphone Jack
This is the subject that everyone talks about now … The real question is: is this a benefit for the user? Or Apple?
A few months ago, Apple filed a patent on the audio connections, letting us see a different format… (Yes, we’ll have to buy everything again, it’s a revolution)
Now they talk to completely remove the audio port! (And possibly use the lightning connector)
Certainly this can have real advantages:
– A single connection (lightning port) for a range of accessories.
– Wireless battery charging (expected by many)
– High resolution audio through the lightning port (with iTunes selling m4a files?)
This is a large topic for discussion! What are your thoughts?
Are you ready to get rid of the headphone jack that we use since years and embrace new technology?
Or do you feel it’s another new marketing attempt at selling us something that doesn’t change anything at the end of the day?
