    I don’t think I’d switch my entire digital life over a port.

    Regardless, even if Apple adds a USB-C port to the iPhone (which I doubt), doesn’t mean your usb-C headphones will be compatible with it, or with your Mac and iPhone, or iPad. Apple doesn’t even make USB-C headphones.

    No, Apple doesn't yet make USB-C headphones. I imagine they would have to if they moved everything over to USB-C.
    You're correct in that many devices don't support analog-over-USB-C, but they should all support digital audio over USB-C. My MacBook Pro, my wife's retina MacBook and my Surface Book 2 all support audio through Google's $12 Rev. 2 USB-C to 3.5mm audio adapter. And reports are Pixel phones work fine with Apple's $9 USB-C audio dongle.
