iPhone 7 might kill the headphone jack to become crazy thin

Apple could be planning to do away with the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7, if new reports are to be believed.

The normally reliable 9to5Mac cites a Japanese blog as the source of the murmurs. The thinking, apparently, is that by doing away with the standard headphone port the company can make the next iPhone “more than 1mm” thinner.

Instead, headphones would connect via either the iPhone’s Lightning port, or wirelessly using Bluetooth. In what is no doubt a massive coincidence, Apple happens to own Beats, a company that makes expensive headphones and which can presumably expect a massive uptick in sales if Apple does decide to do away with the decades-old headphone standard.
