Hey Apple, I’m all for a truly “magical” new phone, but doing away with the 3.5mm headphone jack isn’t my idea of “magical”.
Here’s how I see things: taking out the headphone jack means I can have a slimmer phone (it also has implications for DRM, but I’m not really concerned about that right now).
But I don’t want a slimmer phone. A slimmer phone is useless to me when it’s that big. A slimmer phone is just going to be easier to break in my pocket. I have enough trouble as it is fitting it into my pocket.
You know what would be truly magical?
A bendy, flexible phone that I don’t have to worry about which pair of pants I’m wearing. That would be magical to me.
