Steve Wozniak Talks Possible 3.5mm Output Removal on Upcoming iPhone

In just a few weeks, if all goes as expected, we'll get to 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 now “IPhone 7” come without the infamous 3.5mm output for headphones. About this, everyone commented and commented but who came to the public to give their opinion even before any confirmation was the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak.

In interview with The Australian Financial ReviewWozniak said he believed that removing the headphone jack might upset many people and commented on the option of wireless headsets.

I would not use Bluetooth I do not 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 simple.

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 manufactured with a type of plug (3.5mm), so I will have to use the adapter.

Nevertheless, Ma's co-founder is not closed to new solutions, saying that “if there is a Bluetooth 2 that has a bigger and better quality band, with which the music would sound real, I could use it. But let's see. ”

Remember that the Bluetooth 5 has just been announced, promising to be twice as fast and four times more range. What is not known if Apple already has this version on its new iPhone.

From the rumors, there's no mention that Apple would trade the Lightning port for a USB-C, but Woz still risks a hunch about this new form of connection:

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

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