So there’s a rumour floating around that the next iphone will do away with the 3.5mm headphone socket and you will use the lightning port to plug in included lightning earbuds, and presumably all third party headphones will need to be lightning compatible, or you will need to use an adapter (and knowing Apple the adapter won’t be included).
So what do we think of this rumour? Do you think Apple would actually do this? Will it make you think twice about buying the next iphone when any 3rd party headphones you use will require an adapter of some sort? Naturally all 3rd party accessories will be extra expensive because they have to be licensed to work with Lightning.
I personally hope the rumour isn’t true but then Apple did give us a laptop with a single USB port, so it really wouldn’t surprise me if they did this.
