Is the 3.5 mm Headphone Port doomed?

Post by bdahm on Mon Jul 04, 2016 11:25 am

Eventual it is. The only question is when. The iPhone coming out this fall reportedly isn't going to have a headphone port — instead, headphones will be able to connect through Apple's proprietary Lightning charging port.

The big question is: Why?
It's because headphones with a digital connection — like Lightning or USB-C — can do so much more than traditional analog headphones, according to Carl Alberty, VP of marketing at Cirrus Logic.
