So, the new iPhone won't have a headphone jack then

25 January 2016

apple You only have to mention a rumour about a new iPhone, and someone will start yelling about 'fanboys who will buy anything', or someone bemoaning about 'clickbait' articles. Apple do that to people. That's why they're really rich.

Either way, the biggest rumour surrounding the next iPhone they release, concerns a lack of headphone port. This'll be annoying for a lot of people if it turns out to be true, because it means they'll have to buy new, special headphones for the occasion.

And the mutterings won't go away - an iPhone jailbreaker found a reference in the iOS 9.3 beta software which says "Headphones.have.%sinput.NO.", which is obviously irrefutable proof that Apple are doing away with the usual socket. Obviously.

Please note, 'irrefutable' was used sarcastically in the previous paragraph, and shouldn't be read literally. It could be spot-on though, which means Bluetooth headphones or special ones that work with the Lightning port, would be needed to listen to music through your iPhone. Handily enough, Apple own Beats, who make headphones.

Of course, there's a lot of complaints about this, and even an online petition (which as we know, fixes everything), but obviously, Apple are rather good at keeping things secret, so we'll have to wait until we're closer to the release of the new iPhone, before we get a proper idea of what's going on.
