I hate that one of the big rationales for eliminating the headphone jack is “make it thinner!”. I don’t know how I can make this any more clear to companies – I DON’T WANT A THINNER PHONE. (A) I don’t care if it’s thinner, (2) They’re already thin enough that almost everyone I know puts a case on them anyway, in part to make them easier to grip, and (c) thinner ends up meaning worse battery life, which is the one thing I do wish my phone would have.
I’m not thrilled about a change away from the current audio jack, but imagine it’s inevitable sometime. But it should be to move to something better, not for things that they could already do, to add DRM, and to make it thinner
I agree 100%
