In case you are unaware about the entire absence of audio jack angle to the Apple story, let us catch you up. Rumor mills have been churning that Apple will this time drop the 3.5mm audio jack on the new iPhones, and use the Lightning connector instead. Though some are also anticipating wireless airpods by Apple. Reacting to the news of Apple potentially dropping the headphone jack, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had warned the company against doing so. Wozniak said the Apple must think before they remove the port as it could tick off the customers. “If it’s missing the 3.5mm earphone jack, that’s going to tick off a lot of people,” Wozniak had told the Australian Financial Review. That said, already a few Android players have ditched the 3.5mm audio jack. LeEco recently launched the Le Max 2 without audio jack. Even Motorola debuted its new Moto Z smartphones without the 3.5 audio jack. Also Read - COVID-19 third wave: Twitter shuts offices as coronavirus cases rise
