Ok so it looks like the iphone 7 won't have the 3.5 mm headphone jack, but lets take this further, what if Apple decides to remove it from all its future & upcoming hardware? Lets just say in September Apple has a big conference and shows off the following hardware without the headphone jack. ipod touch ipad mini pro ipod nano ipod shuffle iMac Mac Book Pro Mac mini Mac Pro Thunderbolt display iphone 7SE iphone 7 iphone 7+ iphone 7 pro Also any hardware with a head phone jack is discontinued and no longer made and any remaining stock will be sold but after March 2017 they will be removed from the store shelves, destroyed, and thrown into in a volcano to appease the gods (just kidding) . So the 3.5 MM headphone jack purge begins this fall and ends next spring. This explains why Apple hasn't shown new mac book pro's yet because they were busying taking out the headphone jack. How would that make you feel ?
