It has been heavily rumored that the iPhone 7 will not include a 3.5mm headphone jack. This has been widely accepted by premium headphone makers who have turned their focus to blutooth and lightning connectable headphones. Now we have even more insight that this may truly be the case for the iPhone 7.
A well known jailbreaker "@kyoufujibaya" has found a particularly intriguing line in iOS 9.3 beta 1.1 code. The line of code found "Headphones.have.%sinput.NO." suggest that Apple may indeed decide to not include a 3.5 headphone jack on the next iPhone. That being said all rumors and speculation about the Android phone lineup of 2016 would suggest that all Android phones will include the 3.5mm headphone jack. Just one more reason to go with Android if you ask me.
There are some great quality bluetooth headphones on the market, but most of these great quality headphones are kind of expensive. A 3.5mm headphone jack gives you the freedom to use any headphones. Many audiophiles are obsessed with wired connections anyhow. How important is the inclusion of a headphone jack in a flagship device to you?
