How long before Samsung or Android do the same?
A whole new market for a new set of head phones (and adapters). I call it money maker.
One port that does it all. Pure genius.
I just start using headphones in the last few months and now they are going to "pull the plug" on it.... See what I did there?? I would be ok with it IF I could get a reasonably priced BT headphone that would last 8 solid hours... All of mine I am lucky to get 4 or 5.......
I don't think they are pulling the plug, they are just changing the connector. The less ports, the thinner phone gets.. Makes sense to me.
My Jaybirds go for over 8 hours.
There was another thread about this earlier in the week . Look for the S8 to have no headphone jack and lots of griping how Samsung is taking away a necessity when they do even though, just like an sd card and removable battery, the average user won't even notice.
Personally I'm glad they're doing it so perhaps Bluetooth will stop being in a state of stagnation and start leaping forward again or be replaced by another wireless technology. Government pushed Phone/driving laws didn't do it, maybe Apple will be the catalyst

Guess no one remembers the old-school windows phones did this like the Touch Pro
And if you lost the included headsets or wanted to use your own you had to use the UGLY DONGLE.
^thanks for posting.
I did not know about that myself. But it is similar to the fingerprint scanner in phones. Unfortunately Apple and Samsung will get the credit because at the time Motorola had the Atrix it was just before its time. Same can be said about Dell and their phablet.
In all honesty, I think Apple is just going through an 'everything needs a dongle' phase. Look at the new Macbooks. It's just... Weird.

They are trying to eliminate ports to waterproof the devices.
