Panic has swept over the Internet and there’s nothing we can do at this point to stop it. People are outraged upon hearing rumors that Apple may be planning to ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack on its upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which are set to launch later this year. If only there was something that could be done!

Oh wait, there is.

Bluetooth headphones are all over the place these days, and we even showed you how to make it so that the current 3.5mm headphones you have now will still work with the iPhone 7 if it ditches the standard audio port.
