Courage my ass. Apple wasn't making dick off a 3.5" jack, so they ditched it for a proprietary jack. Third party manufactures now have to pay a license to use it. There's the real reason for for no more jack.

Stay cucked applefaggets.

Flaws in your argument:

1) Lightning is not the only way to listen to music on the iPhone 7. You can instead opt to buy any one of the >9000 standard Bluetooth headsets not made or licensed by Apple. Some of these cost even less than EarPods do.

2) Apple included a Lightning -> 3.5mm adapter in the box with every single iPhone 7. Note that there's actually a DAC in that little dongle. It's a meaningfully expensive thing to include, relatively speaking.

3) Lightning EarPods cost exactly as much as 3.5mm EarPods did. Don't you think they'd raise the price on account of "new technology" to celebrate their newfound de facto monopoly, if this was really what they were after?

Here's why Apple actually got rid of the jack: it makes the phone cheaper to manufacture, it results in fewer service visits related to getting shit stuck/broken off in the headphone jack, and it makes waterproofing easier (yes, there are waterproof headphones with headphone jacks, but that doesn't necessarily imply that the headphone jack doesn't present an unnecessary engineering complication when implementing waterproofing).

It's just like the removal of Flash. People will be pissy about it because the move is forceful and ahead of its time, but history will remember it as a good and necessary thing that someone had to do eventually.

And they still have better water resistance.

They have some form of tiny doors outside of the 3.5mm jack. This is not water proof nor a thing apple would want on their phones.

Yeah, fuck devices that don't need charging, give me one more wireless wonder instead whose battery life I should worry about.

There are phones that waterproof the jack so you don't need the doors.

1) Ahh, Bluetooth!

2) Whoa, so they took something that was inside the phone and put it..MUH OUTBOARD PHONE DAC MASTERRACE.
3) Celebrating the fact that you're getting fucked in the ass, and he almost came inside, but decided to finish into his own mouth while you curled into a ball and wept in the corner.

Anyanon wanna sauce bit depth/sample rate of these shitty dongles and incompatibuds? I can't find it. First one to say "better than analog 3.5mm lol" gets to swing in the breeze and meet Stevesies.

cannot comprehend patent licensing and that Apple gets paid when a lightning connector is machined
mfw the situational irony of "flaw 3"

1) Lightning is not the only way to listen to music on the iPhone 7. You can instead opt to buy any one of the >9000 standard Bluetooth headsets...

Irrelevant, because that technology is on every phone, and if someone wanted to listen with a bluetooth headset they would already have done so.

2) Apple included a Lightning -> 3.5mm adapter in the box with every single iPhone 7. Note that there's actually a DAC in that little dongle...

If the 7 was actually incapable of interfacing with 3.5mm, there would be actual sales lost because a lot of things depend on that.
The dongle allows apple to claim that they aren't really removing capability, but it makes it much more inconvenient to use 3.5mm devices.

3) Lightning EarPods cost exactly as much as 3.5mm EarPods did. Don't you think they'd raise the price on account of "new technology" to celebrate...
Their profit margin is slightly lower on the Lightning ear pods, but now with the lightning interface they are guaranteed money from any directly connecting audio devices.
People being forced to buy earbuds with apple's licensed interface will net them more money in the end.

Moto G3 user here, waterproof, 3.5mm jack and no doors

Is nice to connect Spotify to everything :)
Last week I connected it to a 15K watts sound system for an event we were setting up, "sorry my phone hasn't a jack" that would be weird

99% percent of headphones are now unusable on iPhone 7 because Apple is ran by incompetent people banking on Jobs success
And further Apple digs themselves into the hole.
Everyone already knows Bluetooth headphones are memes.

The real reason for that is that you can't track data through 3.5 jack, but you can do it through lightning. Listening music not in ITunes? Lose warranty
