Anyone else notice the headphone jack is much looser than previous iDevices? It takes almost no pressure to remove headphones. Not sure if it will continue to get looser or cause issues while exercising.

Oh, thank goodness! From the thread title, I thought you had misplaced it! Glad to hear that it's just loose and it's not lost! :p

In all seriousness, I've actually noticed the opposite; it feels "grippier" for me, if anything.

Fixed the title.

Really? Ok. Compared to my 5, ipods, ipad, it's very loose. Takes the lightest pull to remove it.

i certainly did notice this. I went from a 5S to a 6+ and it's much easier to pull out my 3.5mm audio cord.

interesting isn't it?

Too many complaints about the previous setup maybe.
