Apple is holding its annual fall event Wednesday, to announce new i-things. And while there's some excitement, there is also some skepticism over the possibility that the next iPhone won't have a headphone jack.
FOX's Jessica Rosenthal reports:
Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 7 Wednesday and while it might not be a huge upgrade, Erik Slivka at Mac Rumors says there may be a big change to a small part of the phone: getting rid of the headphone jack:
(Slivka) "Not entirely sure how Apple's going to try and spin it, they're going to try to sell it as an improvement, obviously, somehow."
Jonathan Zhou a contributor to Cult of Mac says it the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack has been around for decades:
(Zhou) "I think they're trying to improve the product, make it smaller, and I think one of the things they're trying to do is improve the water proofing of product and I think it is necessary to remove that port in order to make that happen."
There will be a way to use headphones, it's just not entirely clear how, like if it'll be through using the lightning port or with wireless headphones.
