I am happy the headphone jack is gone!
There. I said it.
Okay, maybe that is a bit drastic. I should really say that I don’t care too much that the headphone jack is gone from the iPhone 7. I have been using bluetooth headphones for almost a year and I love it. Of course, I still use my non-bluetooth headphones from time-to-time. I have a great pair of Skullcandy I like to use when I want good surround acoustics while writing or watching something on my computer, a pair of older style behind the neck ones I use for the gym, and, of course, the standard Apple earbuds as a back-up in my everyday carry or in my desk at work.
I discovered the need for bluetooth headphones a while ago. I loved the idea of not getting a tangled cord in my bag or pocket and not having issues with the cord getting snagged on anything. The final point for me was, after reading some blogs, how great it would be for my commute. I really enjoy not worrying about cords and being able to put my phone in my backpack and still listen to music or podcasts. If anyone remembers those pockets some backpacks have that allow you to leave your device in your bag and run your cord through a hole in the top? Those were awkward to say the least. I have not seen anyone actually use that little hole since middle school.
Bottom line… give it a chance. Don’t complain because you hope Apple will give in. Let’s face it. They won’t. Embrace the future! haha!
But, seriously, give it a chance. It will be hard to go back. And, for the love of all that is holy, don’t drill a hole in your new phone!
