Apple May Replace 3.5mm Headphone Jack With Lightning Connector For iPhone 7

Apple thinks it’s okay to get rid of a connector standard and make you pay for an adapter just to use your wired headphones.

The report, citing a "reliable source," claims the new same-sized Lightning connector will support Lightning-equipped and Bluetooth headphones, and have a DAC, or digital-to-audio converter, for backwards compatibility with wired headphones using standard 3.5mm stereo jacks. A 3.5mm to Lightning adapter would be required.
