Apple iPhone 7 Might Not Have 3.5 mm Audio Jack,It seems that Apple isn’t done experimenting on new features for the upcoming iPhone 7, according to a hidden message included in the latest software release for the iOS 9.3 beta 1.1.
There have been rumors circulating on the Internet that Apple could include Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) technology in the iPhone 7’s design, which would give the smartphone faster connectivity. This was based on a supposed iOS 9.1 library code that a Twitter user named Chase Fromm stumbled upon.
Now, a jailbreak aficionado using the name @kyoufujibaya on Twitter suggests that another hidden code included in the iOS 9.3 release hints at the possibility that Apple could also drop the classic 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 as well.
@kyoufujibaya tweeted that the message “Headphones.have.%sinput.NO.” was mentioned in the codes, leaving many social media users to speculate if the smartphone maker is opting for Lightning based connectors or even wireless connectivity for future iPhone headphones.
While there is not enough evidence to support this assumption and Apple has yet to confirm or deny the rumors about the new iPhone 7 features, some observers believe that it would make more sense to ditch the headphone jack.
By eliminating the need for the 3.5mm jack on the iPhone, Apple can reduce the size of the bezel at the bottom of the phone and make it look thinner.
If Apple does decide to incorporate Lightning ports to the iPhone 7’s design, it could result in higher quality audio. The signal from the iOS device is digitally sent to an external digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and amplifier, which effectively provides better fidelity.
Other headphone makers, such as JBL, Philips and Audeze, have already started to explore the possibilities of using Lightning audio output for their devices. These headphones make use of Apple’s connector in place of the regular 3.5mm jack.
Apple is also reportedly working with Beats in developing wireless earbuds for the iPhone 7 that can be charged through the smartphone’s protective carrying case. The new accessory will likely be released before or around the same time as the new smartphone itself is made available in the market.
