    I have a 16gb golden iPhone 6 plus and according to the specs and information online, their exists a 3.5mm headphone jack on the Phone itself. However, no headphones matching that diameter actually fit or work. Not even the the 3.5mm apple ear-pods I have will fit. Its not stiff, clogged, funny, or user-related. There is no way you're getting any 3.5mm headphones to fit enough to receive audio in this thing, literally broke my headphones just pushing them straight in there which was poor judgement to follow this advice.



    I understand there is a lightning cable connector you can buy, but honestly, seriously? did apple actually make an iPhone 6 plus that doesn't fit the standard headphones that so many people have? it makes no sense to me. I looked into possibilities of it being a knock off ect. and its the real deal. Someone said maybe there is a screw in there, there isnt. But why would there be anyway? other people mention crackling issues related to this version. But I feel like the only person with a jack that simply fits no standard headphones not even apples.



    Any advice? is this intentional or normal.

    Before you mention it: There is NO room to budge. You are not getting these headphones a nudge further then they are here. And the connection is never recognized by the device like this.

    Is there an adapter of some kind to utilize 3.5mm headphone jacks in the actual headphone jack rather then lightning cable slot?

    Perhaps there's something stuck (or perhaps broken) inside the headphone port there that's getting in the way? Alternatively are you certain that this isn't a real iPhone, but it seems like you don't think that's the case.

    I'm certain that it IS a real iPhone. Thats how I feel after knowing that possibility was already incredibly unlikely and then searching online for things like screws ect. and verifying the serial number and all that. Im satisfied that It is a real iPhone, it doesnt seem like something is stuck in there.

    I actually came here because I couldnt post on apple forums. I just got this "

    You can tell it's a real iPhone by the ugly Apple Music UI but there is nothing we can do here and most suggestions will only make the problem worse. Your best thing to do is to take the phone to an Apple Store for warranty and let them fix it.

    To be fair, there are fakes out there that mimic iOS fairly well. But that seems like neither here nor there as far as this thread goes. And, yes, the suggestion of contacting Apple about it all seems like the most reasonable one at this point.

    Might just walk into the apple store and ask. I dont have warranty coverage anymore.

    Ok, just in case you haven't checked, I had a problem with my iPhone where the headphone plug wouldn't go far enough in to lock into place. I took a look inside the socket and poked around with a paperclip and removed a chunk of fluff/pocket lint. Now it works just fine.

    Yeah that is what I heard initially from my research but I didnt seem to have that problem. Id like to see a picture of the inside of the jack if possible.
