Apple just released the new MacBook Air and iPad Pro in New York. Although both products have been greatly updated compared to the previous ones, relatively speaking, the new iPad Pro has changed more in terms of form and hardware configuration, and Apple has higher expectations for its productivity attributes.
Apple also gave up the Lightning interface that has been used, and replaced it with the Type-C interface which already available on the MacBook series. In the past, if you wanted to connect the iPad to an external accessory, you always need to use the Lightning adapter. Now with the universal USB-C port, you can connect the iPad Pro to other devices much easier. This can also be seen as Apple’s work for this highly anticipated device. A change towards productivity transformation.
Does New iPad Pro Have Headphone Jack?
Since the new iPad Pro already dropped the Lightning port. It also dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack. After canceling the headphone jack, it’s no longer possible to insert the earphone directly into the mobile phone to listen to songs. In addition, listening to songs while charging is also a luxury. Although there have been many objections, the elimination of the headphone jack has become a trend.
Why New iPad Pro Removed Headphone Jack?
1.Optimize internal structure
Apple likes to pursue the mechanism of simplicity and thinness, not only iPhones, but also iPad, etc. Apple is not the first manufacturer to cancel the headphone jack. As early as 2014, OPPO introduced a mobile phone without a headphone jack: OPPO R5, and its thickness is only 4.85mm. In 2016, Apple officially canceled the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7. It will be found that after removing the 3.5mm headphone jack, it can not only make the phone thinner and lighter, but also free up space for the battery and improve iPhone’s life.
The first thing to admit is that canceling the headphone jack doesn’t have a substantial improvement in the sound quality of the phone. The main change is from analog signal output to digital signal output. The analog signal is the processed signal, so the sound quality will have a certain loss after the output; while the digital signal is close to the original signal, so the plasticity is stronger.
The future is bound to be wireless. In addition, the elimination of the 3.5mm headphone jack has improved the appearance of the mobile phone to a certain extent. In the future, it’s not just the headphone jack, there will be many settings disappear.
