Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Apple will remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from its next iPhone. Discuss here if you think this would be a smart move by the company, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Anyone that has a smart phone knows the sound is very minimal. It would be a bad mistake to take away the headphone jack.

Apparently they're going to rework the iphone to pass audio to wired headsets through their 'lightning cable port':

Presumably using the network connection approach will mean one has to another Apple spec'd headphone too; which will mean another money spinner for Apple...?

I read from the article that DAVEINCAPS submitted that they are going to make the phone waterproof (good idea) wireless charging and thinner. The iPhone is already too thin and requires an aftermarket cover to keep from dropping it because it's slippery. Some of the changes are practical, but I think they should just let well enough alone. Keep the headphone jack, it's just sound. I agree, it is a money racket.

Bad move. They could make it even thinner by disbanding the iPhone altogether.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

now now... there's nothing the iphone can't do that two tin cans and length of string doesn't do almost as well...

But then there's alway the olde Nokia mini brick style of phone; make/receives calls and does texts... Battery lasts for ages between charges too...; and it's pretty well unhackable?

Someone on TV said they don't want a mobile phone because the darned things keep ringing. I sympathise LOL. How about a clockwork one which you wind up when you want to receive a call? No battery issues at all and great fun trying to guess when someone is calling..

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
