No Headphone Jack for the iPhone 7 and more!

Apple iPhone 7 won’t come with a headphone jack

At least, that’s what rumour sites like Unbox Therapy are saying.  Unlike past generations of iPhone where the chassis was upgraded every two years, it appears that apple will be keeping the iPhone 6 body for at least an extra year.  The two biggest differences that you will notice from looking at the mockup iPhone 7 that Unbox Therapy has is the lack of headphone jack as well as the protruding double lens camera.  It is believed that getting rid of the former will allow Apple to make the phone water-resistant while still providing the original functionality through the existing lightning port.  This will indeed mean that your existing headphones will need an adapter to work.

Here is the original video highlighting the differences.
