One of the biggest dramas surrounding the launch of iPhone 7 was the fact that it did not include the jack and therefore was incompatible with most users’ headsets. Apple offered a decent solution to this: offering a jack to Lightning adapter for use by iPhone 7 owners .
However, we have always had doubts as to whether this adapter would also be present on future iPhones. Despite Apple’s switch to Lightning and wireless connections, many users still own headphones with a jack connection . Now, as rumors indicate, Apple will continue to include the adapter in the box of the next iPhone. At least one more year.
The question here is, should Apple include this adapter? While it is true that the change has been gross for many users, Apple already offers a compatible headset with their phones (when many manufacturers do not even offer headsets) Why should Apple also include an adapter?
After almost a year with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, many users have not even released the adapter. Either because the EarPods are enough for them, or because they use a wireless headset like the AirPods. We’ll see if we have an adapter in the iPhone box in 2018 as well.
