According to early sources who have seen the design of the latest iPhone, things are about to get quite different for Apple phone users. After their recent acquisition of Beats, it was assumed that the sound system within the next iPhone, or perhaps the accompanying headphones with the smartphone itself, would be designed and supplied by Beats. And while that may still be the case, it looks like Apple are going one step further, by cutting out an audio-in jack altogether, and making all future headphones for their smartphones connected wirelessly.
Beats already have a wireless, Bluetooth connection range of headphones as part of their line, but Apple redesigning their new phones to be used solely with wireless headphones is a major redesign, and may cause as big an issue as when they switched to the Lightning connector from the iPhone 5 onwards.
While it’s not entirely clear if the iPhone design for the connector-less redesign was for this year’s iPhone 6 (if it is released this year, and if it is indeed called that), or a possibly further in the future variation on the iPhone, but it is apparently something that Apple smartphone users will have to deal with eventually. Best get prepared now!
