At this point it is not a rumor anymore, it’s a fact that the new iPhone is ditching the headphone jack. But people are wondering what might take its place. The rumors suggest that the earbuds will go wireless but it will not come with the box like its predecessor rather it will be announced as a premium accessory and the strongest rumors suggest it will not even use Bluetooth rather a new technology created by Apple.
Similar to Bluetooth
Apple may implement a design which is similar to Bluetooth with more strict power consumption capacity. This is designed in a way that it will work in the Apple Atmosphere and smart car systems and other some accessories. The analyst named KUO even suggested that the chip is developed by Taiwan Semiconductor. A company specializes is chips.
Most Apple thing possible
So if Apple removes the headphone jack and replaces it with a premium accessory then what will the regular customers do. It is rumored that iPhone will come bundle with a pair of lighting-connector compatible earbuds or at least with a 3.5mm to lighting adapter. This is the most Apple thing possible. Remove something and replace with something more premium priced.
So are you excited about tomorrow’s Apple event?
