The reason I wont be buying another iphone but instead switch to android:

- No yearly 100$ license to publish apps
- No mac required
- Heaphone jack

    Serious question why is everyone so upset about the headphone jack...

    @Treighton Hm, I would a be a bit worried if I had to use an adapter, just another point of failure. But it's not that big of a deal imo

    Yes Bluetooth still cannot play lossless hifi, it's closer e.g bower Wilkins new series

    What I don't get is they keep saying it opens the doors for better quality DACs... But I haven't seen a worthwhile one since? I love the phone, but I've already given up on using headphones on the thing

    @Lilithium agree with that, but Bluetooth is pretty easy and cheap these days

    @KnightsOfCode agreed the quality is not ideal, but even still a .5mm jack is not ideal for highest quality sound. If you could tell the difference between Bluetooth and .5mm then I'm surprised you would settle for .5mm

    I just got the 7+ and it's not bad at all. I guess the only adjustment for me was the size. Usually always have Bluetooth headphones anyway.

    @Treighton the difference between Bluetooth and the internal DAC is super clear for me

    You don't have to get an iPhone 7 you know that right? The 6S(+) is still a very capable device. And a mac isn't a requirement anymore

    Android will lose them too eventually, it is the slow tick of progress.

    As an audiophile (or atleast as someone that doesn't remove his headphones to a degree that he might get a bald spot) I refuse to let Apple dictate what I use and how I will use it! And I don't need to say that a tech company should ADD features not remove them...

    @Marnsghol if you use apple products you are already letting them tell you what you cannot and cannot use...

    @Treighton Well I don't actually use apple I'm just riding the bandwagon Choo chooo !

    @Marnsghol lol my whole point is basically this: you don't have to buy the phone, and what they did by removing the port was so they could maintain the slim design. It really could be considered a feature rather than a lack of one. I feel like complaining about the lack of the port is like complaining that there are hotdog + bun toasters that don't have slots for sliced bread...or coffee grinders that you cannot process meat in.

    Not sure if everyone is aware but the 7 comes with the lightning to 3.5 adapter. I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like and also you don't need a mac to use it.
