Before Apple received the announcement of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, there were a lot of rumors circulating that the company was planning to smash a 3.5 mm headphone jack. These rumors were so frequent, in fact, that before the change officially officially people perceived it as a gospel. "That's what Apple is about to do." It is not unheard of by any means, but it certainly has to calm down some of the indignation when it turned out to be just.
Of course, this did not happen, and we saw a lot of features about how Apple's decision was hostile to the user. I never really agree with this mood, mainly because Apple included the adapter (dongle life!) In the box, but also included a pair of flash headphones. So, if you want a wired experience, there were two options in the box.
However! I understand the disappointment to lose something like a headphone jack that has been a standard option for so long.
It was 2016, and we have seen the release of many devices without a headphone jack. Samsung is there and it's LG too. But we have seen Motorola, Google and even OnePlus, for various reasons, to choose to demolish the ports as a whole. And it's a little funny that many companies indirectly point to the Apple Apple finger, saying the market has moved to wireless technology, and now it's the right time and what's not.
So here we are in 2018, and Apple has not included a dongle box with the iPhone XS / XS Max or iPhone XR, and of course there are people who are once again weapons. But I believe that these companies are right at this point. I see lot of from the wireless headset out there now, especially Apple AirPods. So perhaps you're glad to say goodbye to your headphone jack right now.
However, I'm probably out of it. I'm looking forward to the day when I did not use a wired headset. Over the years, I've tried a variety of wireless headsets, ending up with AirPods, and except that I have to take care of the battery of another device, I'd definitely prefer not to have any cables.
What are your thoughts on this issue, as we are closer to 2019 and hope that our headsets have even better wireless technology? Are you moving from the headphone jack and, if so, which wireless headset do you use these days? Is the wired connection still a priority? Let me know!
