Apple made a controversial decision to remove the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last year. Apple introduced its new wireless AirPods as a way around the headphone jack, but they’re much more expensive than traditional EarPods. From then on, new iPhone users can’t stop missing the 3.5mm headphone jack and the lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter became a necessary dongle for them. Actually, Apple considered the users’ adaptive phase for this change. Therefore, from the release of iPhone 7, a lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack is concluded in the box. And iPhone 8 comes with a lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack as well. Is iPhone 8 Worth to Buy?
With this dongle, you can keep your old headphones with 3.5mm plug. However, if you want to listen to music over an auxiliary cable while charging, you have to buy another dongle which enables you to listen to music while charging.
And there is a frustrating rumor that iPhone 8 could be last to include headphone jack adapter. According to a new report from Barclays, Apple’s mission to kill the use of headphone jacks on iPhone may be completed by 2018. “We believe it stays this year but goes away at some point, potentially in the 2018 model,” said Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis, in a research note obtained by MacRumors. The three new iPhone models Apple introduced this year could be the last time buyer get a free dongle. A previous rumor said that Apple will ditch the dongle in this year’s iPhone packaging, so take Barclay’s note with a pinch of salt for now. Best Bluetooth Speakers for iPhone 8
Obviously, abandon of headphone jack is irreversible. How about try to accept Airpod, truly wireless versions of Apple’s EarPods which cost $159? Apple CEO Tim Cook said that wireless is the future.
