Steve Wozniak talks about the possible removal of the 3.5mm outlet on the next iPhone

In a few weeks, if everything goes as expected, we will know the next line of iPhones and other news when Apple holds its next special event.

A rumor that has been circulating for some time is the possibility that the ‚ÄúIPhone 7‚ÄĚ come without the infamous 3.5mm output for headphones. Everyone commented and commented on it ‚Ķ but whoever came out to the public to give their opinion ‚Äď even before any confirmation ‚Äď was the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak.

In an interview with The Australian Financial Review, Wozniak said he believed that removing the headphone jack could upset many people and commented on the wireless headphone option.

I wouldn’t use Bluetooth… I don’t like wireless. I have cars where you can listen to music over the wire or via Bluetooth and the same thing via Bluetooth sounds too simplistic.

Another possible option would be a Lightning adapter, which Woz found most acceptable.

My headphones have custom implants that fit very comfortably. I can even sleep with them. But they are only made with one type of plug [3,5mm], so I’m going to have to use the adapter.

Despite this, the co-founder of Apple is not closed to new solutions, saying that ‚Äúif there is a Bluetooth 2 that has a bigger band and better quality, with which the music would sound real, I could use it. But let‚Äôs see ‚ÄĚ.

It is good to remember that Bluetooth 5 has just been announced, promising to be twice as fast and to have four times more range. What is not known is whether Apple will already have this version on its new iPhone.

According to rumors, there is no mention that Apple would exchange the Lightning port for a USB-C, but Woz still risks a guess about this new form of connection:

I think USB-C is going to be the future. One of my favorite Androids devices, the Nexus 5X, uses this connector. It takes the device to a higher level, in my opinion.

As much as the rumors already seem to be well grounded, we will need to wait until the September event to see what will definitely come around.
