With the new additions, the iPhone 7 is slated to provide consumers with a thin and well-rounded device that can operate without all the fuss of cords and cables. By truly wireless we mean that there won't be any cord involved, not even between the two earbuds. They will also have different sizes of earbud sleeves for different sizes of ears.
Tech Times reported that Apple may develop a control system for managing calls and activating Siri. The company is set to swap the traditional headphone jack and instead send sound through the lightning port that at the moment is mostly used for charging, according to a report in Fast Company. It will also use new noise-cancelling technology made by a United Kingdom company called Wolfson Microelectronics, which will allow the phone and headphones to work together to remove background noise while listening to music and making phone calls.
All the latest rumors regarding the next Apple smartphone, the iPhone 7, have been saying that the iPhone 7 will not get a 3.5mm headphone jack. In 2014, iOS began to enable headphones for Lightning, and the new EarPods are also said to support this. Unlike the current wireless Beats, which has a mini-USB port, the new iPhones will most likely come with a case that can also function as a rechargeable battery to amp up the device when not in use.
Yep, following a rumor of the previous year to suggest that Apple may be ditching the 3.5mm jack from the new iPhone, 200,000 people have signed a petition against it. Yep, some people are Cray-Cray.
KitGuru Says: While I do think it would be a bit silly for Apple to remove the headphone jack, I do have my doubts on whether this petition would make a difference, especially at this point with supply chains gearing up for production.
Since Apple acquired Beats, it has released Apple Music and created minor updates to existing headphone products.
