[QUOTE=UTR;2780526]I see this as a sign of Apple’s arrogance in thinking that they can re-define a market segment to the benefit of their bottom line. This is all just a ploy to extract more money from their customer base.[/QUOTE]No that is a Fact forget the Loyal Apple users let’s string them up fast as we can.
[QUOTE=Kerry56;2780527]I love the fact that they say it takes “courage” to make this move and remove the headphone jack. When all it is, in fact, is a method to charge outrageous prices for accessories. Their new wireless earbuds (Airpods) will be $159, and will work with the new phones, but no info yet if they will work with regular Bluetooth.[/QUOTE]Courage would be lowering the price to 300 not 700 for the phone that would sell far better. It’s just a way to gouge Loyal customers whom will think twice hey Android is better.
[QUOTE=UTR;2780534]It is probably irrelevant whether they will work with regular Bluetooth because everyone else HAS A HEADPHONE JACK to use!!! LOL! I am curious to know WWSJHD (What Would Steve Jobs Have Done) regarding the headphone jack.
Also, what is an iPhone 7 owner to do if they want to listen to music with conventional headphones AND charge their phone at the same time through the lightning connector?[/QUOTE]
They will make you buy a Apple 600 passive charger to charge your phone that is what they will do. Again strikes to We no longer want your patronage we just want your money. Seems like the time of Apple innovations and listening to Loyal customers is long gone now. And going down the path of Windows 10. Ramrod time…
Steve would fire the current CEO for stupidity.
