iPhone 7 Headphone Jack

I am going to lose the iPhone 7’s dumb headphone adapter in 3 seconds flat

I am going to lose the iPhone 7’s dumb headphone adapter in 3 seconds flat

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, I owned a Lifeproof case for my iPhone. It was a fantastic piece of design — a snap-on case that made my iPhone waterproof without covering the screen. The only wrinkle? It needed a short adapter to use the 3.5mm headphone jack. I lost that adapter within a week of buying the case. You can probably see where this is going.

A series of leaked photos and video over on a Vietnamese blog purportedly show us the Lightning-to-35mm adapter that will be shipping with the iPhone 7. It doesn’t really matter if this is the actual Apple-manufactured adapter or not: it fits perfectly with Apple’s previous dongle design, so it’s likely 95% identical to what will come in the iPhone box (or worse, cost $29 extra).

Leaked photos of iPhone 7’s headphone adapter emerge

Leaked photos of iPhone 7’s headphone adapter emerge

Unless Apple has a last-minute change of heart, the iPhone 7 will ship this coming September without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. And given how reliable and universal the tried and true headphone jack is, Apple’s rumored decision to banish it from existence has understandably created a firestorm of debate.

Seeking to soften the blow, recent reports suggest that Apple will ship a Lightning-to-3.5mm dongle inside of every iPhone 7 box. With the iPhone 7 unveiling just a little bit more than a month away, we’re starting to see images and video which purport to show us what the aforementioned dongle is going to look like.

Leak may have just confirmed the secret Apple had up its sleeve for the iPhone 7

Leak may have just confirmed the secret Apple had up its sleeve for the iPhone 7

Apple’s iPhone 7 is shaping up to be a more intriguing device than we may have originally given it credit for. According to a new report from Macotakara — a site with an impressive track record regarding Apple rumors — the home button on Apple’s next-gen iPhone will sit flush with the screen and will not move when pressed. Instead, Apple is planning to incorporate a series of sensors underneath the home button that will trigger a slight vibration when pressed. This, in turn, will provide users with the illusion that the iPhone 7 home button is a mechanical button.

While we’ve seen rumblings pointing to a home button redesign before, Macotakara’s corroboration arguably provides exceedingly convincing proof that the iPhone’s tried and true home button will see an innovative new redesign come September.

Two new videos get up close and personal with the iPhone 7 like never before

Two new videos get up close and personal with the iPhone 7 like never before

By on July 27, 2016 at 9:43 AM.

If all goes according to plan, we’re currently about a month and a week away from seeing Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus get official. A recent report from a reputable source has pegged September 16th as Apple’s release date for the new iPhone 7 models, which means an announcement will likely come on the Tuesday or Wednesday prior to that date. Monday September 5th is Labor Day, so Apple certainly isn’t going to host a press conference on the 5th. That means that we can expect to see the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus become a reality on either Tuesday September 6th, or Wednesday September 7th.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long at all to get up close and personal with Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →

The iPhone 7 leak we’ve been waiting for still doesn’t solve the biggest mystery

The iPhone 7 leak we’ve been waiting for still doesn’t solve the biggest mystery

By on July 26, 2016 at 11:24 AM.

Can there possibly still be any questions left unanswered after all of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus leaks we’ve seen over the past month or so? As impossible as it might seem, there actually are still several questions that remain unanswered. We know what Apple’s new iPhones will look like and we might even know exactly when they’re set to be released thanks to a big leak earlier this week. But there are some big mysteries that remain, and we’ve been waiting for one leak in particular to arrive so that what is perhaps the biggest iPhone 7 mystery out there might finally be solved.

The good news is that the leak we’ve been waiting for is finally here. The bad news is that unfortunately, it doesn’t bring us any closer to getting answers. More →

This is our best look yet at the iPhone 7

This is our best look yet at the iPhone 7

By on July 26, 2016 at 9:40 AM.

We may very well have reached the peak of the iPhone 7 rumor cycle, Apple fans. At this point, unless just about every reliable Apple source out there has been grossly misguided, we know almost everything there is to know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We know what they’ll look like, we know about a host of new features they’ll likely include, we know about most of the biggest changes compared to this year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and we even probably know exactly when Apple’s new iPhones will be released.

As much as Apple fans already know, however, they still haven’t grown tired of getting early peeks at next-gen iPhone 7 models. And now, a new video gives us what is undoubtedly our best look yet at the upcoming new iPhone 7. More →

Here’s what Apple might name the iPhone 7 instead of ‘iPhone 7’

Here’s what Apple might name the iPhone 7 instead of ‘iPhone 7’

It’s a tiny bit amusing that despite everything we know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, there are still some pretty basic things we don’t know.

We know just about exactly what the iPhone 7 is going to look like, and we also know what the larger iPhone 7 Plus will look like. We know the phones will lose the 3.5mm audio port and gain thinner housings with redesigned antenna lines that are much easier on the eyes. We also know that both phones will feature new and improved cameras, though the camera on the Plus model will be a much bigger upgrade than the one on the smaller iPhone 7.

But ironically, we still don’t know one of the most basic things about these two upcoming new phones: We have no idea what they’ll be called. More →

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

By on July 25, 2016 at 10:40 AM.

There sure is a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, especially for a pair of new smartphones that have been deemed by bloggers to be “boring.” We’re seeing just as much interest in Apple’s next-generation models set to debut this September as we did last year ahead of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus release — and as you might recall, that ended up being Apple’s biggest iPhone launch ever, albeit by a narrow margin. With expectations mounting for a massive tenth-anniversary overhaul next year though, Apple’s 2015 launch is going to be difficult to beat in 2016. But even if Apple falls short, it’ll still have the two most popular new smartphones on its hands when they finally debut in about a month and a half.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long to check out Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →

iPhone 7 Release Date

Apple’s iPhone 7 finally gets a release date

Apple’s iPhone 7 finally gets a release date

It’s time to mark your calendars, folks. According to reputable leaker Evan Blass, Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 7 is set to hit store shelves on Friday, September 16th.

Word of the not-yet-official release date originally came via a tweet from Blass indicating that Apple was going to release the device during the week of September 12. In turn, there was some initial confusion as to whether or not the week of September 12 referred to the product’s unveiling or the actual launch event.

iPhone 7 won’t have a headphone jack, but Apple has a trick up its sleeve to keep you happy

iPhone 7 won’t have a headphone jack, but Apple has a trick up its sleeve to keep you happy

Typically, the impending release of a new iPhone model focuses on whatever cool and exciting new features Apple has in the works. The iPhone 7, though, is a bit different. In fact, it’s not unreasonable to say that the upcoming unveiling of the iPhone 7 has been marked by controversy more than anything else.

According to a number of credible reports, Apple’s next-gen smartphone will ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. And while Apple isn’t shy about discarding popular technologies to the curb, the 3.5mm headphone jack has effectively been around for more than 100 years and is as reliable and durable as it is universal.
