Remember last year when Apple envisioned and created an iPhone without a headphone jack? Now, the Pixel has caught onto this trend. I am a huge supporter of the headphone jack personally because not everyone has bluetooth headphones/speakers to connect their devices to. What if your bluetooth headphones die? How will you listen to your music/watch videos that you like to watch? I always carry around my bluetooth headphones and my apple headphones just incase. We currently live in an age where wireless is everywhere. I own a pair of the Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats 3, and I love them. However, if my powerbeats die out on me, I always have my backup pair of headphones that I can plug into my phone. Apple has started a new trend where headphone jacks are rendered obsolete. Many different phone companies are hopping on the bandwagon, and I don’t like it. When the iPhone 7 just hit the market, Google was even making jokes about the lack of a headphone jack. But now, look at where google devices stand with a headphone jack. The argument for getting rid of the headphone jack is that it creates more internal space. In the long run, this is probably true, but I currently don’t see that vision. As time progresses, we will just become more and more wireless and devices will become more and more interconnected with each other, bringing us more toward the Internet of Things.
