That's true! I like the placement even more nowIt's always been like that on the iPods and especially for what I use it for when I'm in my car it's so stupid having the charger in the bottom and the headphone jack at the top. Now both leads come out the bottom and it looks so much neater. It shouldn't affect you at all, I know it makes my car look better.
It's easier to take out and put into your pants pocket. You don't have to change the grip or turn the phone.
Exactly! It makes sense.Phones are usually put in the pocket upside down, now the jack would be at the top in ur pocket even though it's on the bottom.
That's a good point.It's a big negative for me. Using on my desktop would now be a pain in the ass and now I'd have to dump the phone up side down in my car's cup holder . . .
This. I'm happy it is here. A dock designer can now make a cheap "power only" lightning adapter clone and use the headphone jack for audio out. Allows them to avoid the "Apple Tax". No expensive processing or proprietary electronics will be needed.Also could be to help speaker/dock designers. It would give them an analog out (missing in Lightning) and a stability mount.
A nice set of wireless bluetooth headphone solves this. Put the phone in any position you like. I use these.Yea major annoyance. I like to put the phone standing vertical on the fitness machines at the gym while doing cardio. Now that's going to e impossible.
