AppleInsider said:Rumblings out of East Asia again suggest Apple will ditch the industry standard 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of a Bluetooth wireless/Lightning audio solution, potentially forcing customers invested in the stalwart format to purchase new gear.
Not hard to understand why apple would want to force more functionality of their phone to this garbage connector/cable. Now people won't be able to use their own 3rd party, higher quality headphones and will be forced to spend more money in the "Sexy but you get to buy a new one every 90 days" Apple accessories business.
I have both an iPhone and an Android phone. Hate to say it but I think my years of spending too much for too little on Apple stuff is coming to an end. Android is a lot more flexible and I've only once had to buy a replacement microUSB cord... as opposed to the $x00s of dollars I've been forced to spend on their garbage lightning cables over just the last 2-3 years.
