It’s getting down to crunch-time, folks. September is right around the corner and, in turn, we’re just a few short weeks away from Apple taking the wraps off of the company’s next-gen iPhone. With a rumored special event set to take place on September 7, rumor has it that the iPhone 7 will be on store shelves in just about a month, on September 16 to be exact.
As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, the iPhone 7 will likely do away with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, a controversial design decision to say the least. Consequently, there has been an avalanche of speculation regarding what Apple plans to implement instead. Sure, we know that Lightning-based headphones will be an option, but it remains to be seen how Apple plans to sell customers on the idea of abandoning a port technology that has been around for decades on end. What’s more, it remains to be seen if Apple will use the iPhone 7 release as a jumping off point to try and transition us to world where wireless headphones are the standard.
