    It rumored that there will be NO headphone jack and Dual-lens camera for iPhone 7 Plus. If it is, will you buy this new iphone? Which features you expected most?

    I don't care at all about the headphone jack. I am more interested in a higher resolution display and better speakers. If I get that and have the money to spend, then I am buying it.

    I'll buy it regardless, I'm deaf and cannot benefit much from sound anyway.

    So will you expect a larger screen and higher resolution to have a better visual experience?

    Actually, I've not had any issues with the screen size or resolution. I watch movies and tv shows on my 6s and Siri/dictation work well enough that I rarely have to use the keyboard.

    Hard to say. I'd personally decide it when it's out and also consider looking at the probably lowered price of the 6S (Plus)

    Buying it regardless, but would like better, field of view camera, and higher resolution display.

    think you will be waiting a long time for that

    no headphone jack wouldn't bother me at all. Would just use the earbuds and if the speakers are a lot better then thats a bonus.

    highly unlikely you see any display quality increase. That will be next year.

    I will get the 7 and use my wireless Bose 35S headphones. I have not used the "jack" in a long time. The jack is just another way for moisture and dust to get into the phone.

    I use bluetooth headphones anyway so I really don't need a headphone jack.

    Prob not. Removing the headphone jack just to make it 1mm thinner is the stupidest design IMO. Many many people still use the headphone jack (me being one of them).

    Wireless != better.

    You could ask these folks:
    Poll 3.5mm Headphone Jack

    Or these folks:
    [Poll: Apple Should Keep The 3.5mm On iPhone 7

    Or these folks:
    Would No Headphone Jack Force You To Move Away From The iPhone?

    Or these folks:
    Will You Buy iPhone 7 Or Not If There Is No Headphone Jack?

    Or these folks:
    Would A Thinner Aux-Jack-Less iPhone Be a Dealbreaker?

    Personally if there is stereo sound to me that will be a big plus for me. Earbuds will be fine for me and if needed will get some wireless headphones and going forward I expect most companies to follow suit.

    Will wait until Apple has upgraded bluetooth to 5 and hope they keep the headphone jack. Will wait until next year if the headphone jack is removed due to loss of innovation on Apple's part.

    I'm most likely getting it...but it depends on whatever they decide to give us as alternatives to the current earbuds.

    I originally purchased 6s Plus, but after owning it for just 3 days I had decided that the size was too big and ended up with 6s. Depending on how the iPhone 7 looks like, I might consider getting one just to get the bigger size. If there isn't enough features etc, I might just keep the 6s and wait till next year.

    I will be purchasing the 7 Plus. I always look forward to bumps in performance and camera quality. Those are the only things I really hope for.

    The status of the headphone jack is of exactly zero concern to me. I really don't care one way or the other. Worst case scenario, we'll still be able to use our existing headphones with an adapter.

    I just bought a nice set of headphones that use the 3.5" connector :)

    But I generally don't use head phones. So, when I do, I can just use an adapter.

    I'll buy it, but I won't be too happy with the removal of the jack. I use it all the time and I just purchased some nicer wired headphones (ATH-M50x). I'll be okay if the adapter is cheap and doesn't add much length of bul to the current cord. Just something in-line would be nice that isn't bulky.

    I'll find a way to live without the headphone jack if there are other compelling features. I would consider the absence to be detrimental, though not necessarily a deal breaker.

    As a tech guy, I'll buy the latest iPhone regardless. Sad, I know, but...
