Steve Wozniak does not want Apple to eliminate headphone jack on iPhone 7

Against the backdrop of several rumors and reports that tech biggie Apple will seemingly eliminate the 3.5mm earphone jack in its next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7, the company’s co-founder Steve Wozniak told the Australian Financial Review on Tuesday that he is not positively moved by the idea of removing the headphone jack in the new iPhone.

The rumored removal of the 3.5mm earphone jack in iPhone 7 has seemingly become a serious issue, which is worrying a lot of people; with Wozniak also having joined the debate recently.

The debate basically revolves around the fact that, with the headphone jack eliminated on the iPhone 7 model, the users of the handset will have to buy an adapter for connecting their headphones.

Expressing his implicit disapproval of Apple’s reported plans to do away with the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 handset, Wozniak told the Australian Financial Review that he personally is quite attached to his existing headphones. Further adding that his headphones have custom-made ear implants, Wozniak said that he is not a Bluetooth fan.

In an apparent anticipation of the prospective iPhone 7 buyer’s reaction to the removal of the headphone jack on the handset, Wozniak said that: "If it's missing the 3.5mm earphone jack, that's going to tick off a lot of people."
