"It's no surprise many will follow. I've read this article saying how the jack will be obselete in the next decade, and I say we all should move forward like this. I can't wait for real wireless charging that will actually have distance away from the charger."
"His point is to see how many he can attempt to brainwash. @Ching 1. When something is named differently it's because it's based on how it works differently so this already proves your 'argument invalid. 2. If you think you're so smart about that, then why don't you compare the two based on functions. 3. Did you even watch the keynotes showing off how differently the products work? Apple Pencil with its tip works with the display in order to draw faster than the pressure sensitive pen which has been proven that Apple Pencil surpasses this, as for the EarPods, it's probably NFC in which all you have to do it hold them near the iPhone you want to connect it to and boom, connected without Bluetooth!

"If you go to the gym most of the people there use bluetooth earphones. Wires bother them when they do their exercise. So there's a valid point of loosing the stereo jack. Motorola is doing the same, instead of lightning they use micro usb-c. It is not only Apple who is ditching the old stereo jack port. And soon others will follow. "
"I'am an audiophile and I plug my amp/DAC in the lightning port. I am not affected of what you are blabbering about of loosing the headphone jack. It shows that you are one of those ordinary consumers who cry out when they can't get what they want and can't move on. Grow up buddy! Things are changing and for your information there are lots of better headphones that you don't even heard of yet because all the best for you is beats and bose. Those headphones I know are already jumping in the lightning plug and they are putting the DACs in the cable of their headphones for a more cleaner audio signal. If you are gonna make fun of the free stereo jack to lightning dongle that you get free in an iPhone 7, fiio is releasing the same device that has also a built-in DAC in it. If you don't know what DACs are - those are digital to analogue converters. Why are they used? It converts the digital signal of your audio file to analogue signal for your headphones. Why we still use DACs when there are DACs already installed in the device? It is because inside all devices there are EMIs (Electro Magnetic Interference) happening which cause hissing noise to your sound. So bringing out the DAC outside the device and shielding it with aluminum casing eliminated EMI. So if you are still happy with your cheap stereo plug earphones and doesn't care in listening to real music should sound, better stick your stereo plug in your ass and listen to your fart!"
