A rumor got started that Apple is planning to do While some are clearly fanciful, others are coming from reliable sources and suggest that the iPhone 7 could be quite different from its predecessors

The latest is a series of gossip claim the firm has worked with chip companies to make the change, and will also include noise cancelling technology directly into the handset.

Well, the rumor grew a few more legs , when the Chinese site Anzhuo wrote that supply chain sources had confirmed that the 3.5mm port would be removed on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and that Apple would make a wireless version of its EarPods and perhaps bundle them with the next iPhones. Naturally, there’s no way to confirm any of this, Apple isn’t commenting on it but it’s certainly worth pondering the possibility that it could happen.

The moves are expected to result in a far thinner handset, it is claimed.

In order to shrink the thickness of a future handset, Apple is rumoured to be looking at ways to get rid of the standard 3.5mm headphone port. Instead, reports suggest the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 7 will feature a single, multipurpose Lightning slot that will double up as a headphone port as well as charger

Apple is also believed to be developing a more expensive pair of noise-canceling, Lightning-connected, earphones or headphones, possibly under its Beats brand, the site claims.
Apple is expected to include an adapter with the handset to use older regular 3.5mm headphones.
It is the latest in a long claims have emerged that Apple is set to kill off the headphone socket.

People claim that the reason behind the removal of the headphone jack is a space-saving measure that would allow Apple to make the new iPhones even thinner. This wouldn’t be the first time Apple has removed once-standard ports or accessories from its devices. For example, it killed the DVD disc drive in its PCs and more recently, replaced the standard USB ports with a new, forward-thinking USB Type-C port in its superslim and light 12-inch MacBook.

Apple angered many people when it introduced its proprietary Lightning port because it required specialist Apple hardware to use.
This headphone change could have a similar consequence.
The reports come from Japanese site Macotakara that said the new iPhone will support headphones with either the existing Lightning connector or via Bluetooth, and these new headphones will be sold with the new handset.

It is expected that Apple may also sell a converter that would allow users to plug in their ‘old’ standard 3.5 mm headphones to newer phones.

If Apple does indeed remove the 3.5mm jack, it could make a lot of people unhappy. I personally use a lot of wireless headphones, but I also like to be able to plug in my wired ‘phones, which typically sound better than wireless models.

If Apple is getting rid of the headphone jack would help Apple to shrink the iPhone 7 by one mm (0.04 in).
By comparison, its latest smartphone, the iPhone 6s, is 7.1 mm (0.27) thick.

The only problem is you can’t charge your phone when you have a Lightning headphone using the port (the makings, I suppose, your headphone could be used to charge your phone).
Elsewhere, Lightning-based headphones would experience less ‘crosstalk’, or signal interference, according to The Next Web.

What do you think? Good idea to remove the headphone jack, or bad mistake?
