You probably haven’t been able to ignore the fact that today is iPhone 7 launch day, given how the media panders to Apple products. Since the iPhone 7 was formally announced, we have also seen endless coverage over Apple’s decision to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack and whether that is a bold move, a premature move or a step too far for what remains one of the most ubiquitous forms of tech around.
We thought that today’s launch of the iPhone 7 marked the appropriate time to ask our readers their views. What we want to know from you is that is Sony suddenly dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack in next year’s flagship model, how upset would you be?
Do you see this as a progressive and inevitable step for smartphones? Maybe you have already made the move to wireless earphones/headphones? If so, does the convenience of no wires outweigh the inconvenience of having to charge them? Or, would the move annoy you enough to consider moving to a different brand? Do you still see plenty of life in the headphone jack, maybe you view Apple’s decision to remove the jack as anti-consumer? Either way, we want to hear your views. Please let us hear your comments below.
