Apple removed the headphone jack… and it won’t come back! There are many reasons why they removed it:
- Making the iPhone Waterproof
A Waterproof iPhone would be a big win for Users. But why didn’t they just Waterproof the jack? Waterproofing a headphone jack is very difficult and takes up a lot of space.
- The audio connector is more than 100 years old
The headphone jack got used in the 19’s. But Apple want’s to make innovative products, so they decided to connect the headphones via Lightning or Bluetooth. “It had its last big innovation about 50 years ago. You know what that was? They made it smaller. It hasn’t been touched since then.” Joswiak says.
“It’s a dinosaur. It’s time to move on.”
- To fit more/bigger components in the iPhone
The one thing that Apple tries to do is saving space in the internals of their products. The newest Components got bigger (like the new Taptic Engine) and new ones may be added soon as well.
