The question of Apple keeping the 3.5 mm audio jack in the new iPhone remains open. Analysts believe that we won’t see the audio jack in the new iPhone, with all information leaks pointing at the likeliness of its absence in favor of Lightning.
As a result, a month before the anticipated presentation of the new iPhone 7, the Bluetooth headphones manufacturers’ sales for the first time in history have been higher than those of regular headphones. This has been reported by NPD Group experts based on a recent US research. It’s mention-worthy that the peak in the sales came in the first quarter of 2016 — exactly when the first rumours of the possibility of iPhone7 having no audio jack.
Who would you think was the leader in wireless headphones sales? Ironically, Beats that today belongs to Apple is on top of the list.
