When will apple focus on something mkre important like the camera screen res or even the battery life samsung has shot was past them in better phones and the new beats will prob be something really cheap bad quality and bad battery life too
 They will

The only reason competition is ahead because they always release something after a new iPhone, but apple is focusing on it. They did once ask early iPhone 5 buyers what they wanted in the next iPhone and when it comes to a whole new one, that's where major improvements come in.

If they want me to buy an iPhone 7 with no headphone jack they better be including those new wireless beats am I right?

That's the first thing that came to my mind! LOL no headphone jack they BETTER include the earphones if they don't have a headphone jack. Shit I don't want to be buying everything separate now. If they end up doing they will literally stop me from buying phones from them now..

That looks an awful lot like the cyberman "ear pods" from Doctor Who

Typical Apple - who cares about the sound quality? Bluetooth is just as rubbish as MP3. If it was wireless it could play high-res music files. But, who needs that among iTunes consumers? Not many, I guess.
I do

You can't be serious. Bluetooth is decent from what I have used. In fact, I get high quality music even from YouTube just fine no matter how I listen to it.

I am VERY serious. But, as your standards are just as those of the vast majority of contemporary mankind (and I do not mean anything derogatory or belittling by that), all is well and good. The fact, however, remains (and any moderately competent technical person will know that) that Bluetooth never had or will have a sufficient bandwidth to transmit music at any quality resolution level. It has never been designed to perform any such task, which is where wifi standards come in. But, as you say, I am sure it is good for YouTube. Which, incidentally, even in it's HD setting has very little to do with Hifi sound quality. Everyone to their taste, of course. What we do not know could not possibly hurt us!

Bravo QuatroRS4 - you are absolutely right. Bluetooth as a medium for high-quality audio is as good as any Beats headphone ever released (i.e. synonymous with utter crap). Even supposedly-lossless Apt-X over Bluetooth doesn't work as well on high-complexity audio passages. There is always the issue of very poor mastering in contemporary music, no matter the medium used, but that's another (sad) story..

What do I know? All I have done was to be around high-end audio for the past 40 years so I am out of date anyway. My minimal standards are irrelevant and too posh and elitist for the current times. All that matters in the 21st century is that it plays ridiculously loud, has infinite distortion and comes with the an appropriate brainwash...BTW, I have owned almost every single product Apple made since 1984, but I will certainly not dispose of my iPhone 6/6S or any other portable products with a headphone output. For as long it is Bluetooth that is supposed to bring music from the host into my ears... Long live audio mediocrity!

Tim Cook recently said "we want our customers to be happy". Apple need to realize that by removing the headphone port, they will be making an awful lot of us deeply unhappy. They should offer their customers meaningful innovation with each product iteration, especially at that price. Removing the headphone port, in order to supposedly make the device thinner, is not innovation. It is the exact opposite of that; they will be giving us a vastly inferior product in many ways. So, in order to listen to (inferior-quality, Bluetooth) audio, we will now need to charge daily YET another device?! Also, is Apple aware of the myriad of Bluetooth issues eg. random disconnections when it comes to pairing with specific devices ? Does anybody within Apple actually care about audio quality anymore? Whats the point of having better cameras/faster processors/a thinner form if the phone fails to adequately perform one of its primary functions, i.e. play music. Apple, please listen to your customers : we need the headphone jack much, much more than we need a thinner phone.
Here's your answer
Here's your answer - January 10, 2016 at 10:34pm
1. The phone doesn't fail to play music just because it's thin. 2. The point of making a faster processor and camera is that it gets more quality and effort put into it and take advantage of extra power. 3. There's this petition that you can sign that involves keeping the jack and will give Apple a chance to listen. It doesn't mean loss of innovation to begin with though.

Petitions are a waste of time, but people love them for some inexplicable (apart from mild political connotations they aspire towards) and I am happy for them to do so. And, if someone wanted to do it very easily, the awful Beats headphones (which will never sound good for a simple reason that 99.9% of those buying them could not care less about the sound) could sound at their mediocre best (rather than worst) if WIFI was used to transmit. Wifi is as good as ethernet in terms of data transfer capacity, except it needs buffering to make sure there are no (or at least not many) dropouts while streaming. That is all I have to say on the subject, have fun ladies and gentlemen and what will be will be. Not the first or the last time that the Apple may NOT know what is best for us. Such is life. Ciao!!
Well...

How would Apple know what you would want for sound? Imagine all that work to get headphones with lightning just to go with the 7.

Why not wireless EarPods?

Because earpods fit terribly and don't stay in.

I find them the exact opposite.
