I have been thinking for a while Apple will remove the 3.5mm stereo jack. With the removal of the 30pin the thickness of the iPhone is dependent on stereo jack, The iPhone 6/6s could be the last phone we see with a stereo jack. Apple could make a lightning headphones and a lightning to 3.5mm adapters. Buying Beats could give them another brand to support lightning headphones/earphones. Now with news of Apple adding hd audio to Lightning (http://www.macrumors.com/2014/05/13/hd-audio-ios-8-new-in-ear-headphones-lightning/) they could offer higher quality audio as well. This is all dependent on Apple releasing the Lightning spec to the public for general use much like MiniDisplayPort, this also leads to my theory of Lightning replacing USB-c as an IO connector. I wrote about that in theverge http://www.theverge.com/2014/4/28/5...ded-lightning-connector-and-a-great-jerk-move Thoughts?
