plain and simple facts sound quality via any form of Bluetooth besides aptXHD does not equal the sound quality that can be transmitted. Via 3.5mm jack. That being said I understand the reasoning for deleting the 3.5mm jack on phones for a larger Taptic Vibration motor. But on an iPad ? We have plenty of space. Unless Apple is brining 3D Touch to iPads because look at the new MacBook Pros with the Touchbar the Trackpad is Massive and has a Taptic feedback motor to simulate clicks. It's possible they could add that to an iPad. I for one would gladly give up the 3.5mm Jack in exchange for 3D Touch.
