iPhone 7 to Feature Separate Headphone Jack… Or Not?
A new image showing something what appears to be a headphone jack module for the upcoming iPhone 7 has recently appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo. This piece of news contradicts the rumors suggesting that Apple was planning to get rid of the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack in the next-generation iPhone.
The image itself seems to be legitimate and shows a Lightning cable assembly that comes with a number of additional internal components, for example, the aforementioned headphone jack module. Even though the leaked part has a number of differences, in general, it is quite similar to the component used in the iPhone 6s.
The assembly part is host to a number of components, including cellular antenna cables and the obligatory Lightning port, but the new design clearly shows a separate white headphone jack on the far left-hand side.
Many insiders and reliable analysts believe that Apple will ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of using the Lightning connector for headphones in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to reduce the thickness and weight of the devices. Still, we can’t be sure as Apple remains silent about its plans.
Stay tuned for more rumors about the next-generation iPhone.
