My issue about the audio jack is I have two cars that rely on being able to use the headphone jack and charge the device at the same time. They are older cars so no BT. I am not about to go out and buy new cars so that I can do this fairly simple and basic task.
I know, I know, soon there will be this dual charging / audio jack dongles galore from 3rd party vendors and heck even Apple might make one so that they can keep their customers "delighted" and make more money of their base.
Pretty soon we will have more dongles than we can count floating around everywhere and every dongle lost or that needs replacing is music to Apple's bottom line.

When they said courage I laughed at loud. It didn't make sense to say that. I don't get why everyone thinks this is a money grab by Apple. Looks like they needed the space to do stuff internally in the 7. I just wish that they included wireless headphones instead of the lightning ones.

I think the demand for the 7 (except for that Jet Black version) has cooled tremendously compared to the 6 and even the 6s. When my wife and I pre-ordered our 6 Pluses on pre-order day in 2014, it was like 6:00 P.M. by the time we made it to the Verizon store. We were porting our numbers from AT&T, so I wanted to do it at the store. That late in the day, orders were already backed out to late October early November. I just checked on Verizon's website in regards to the 7, and even now, at 2:30 in the afternoon (Central Time), I can still get one shipped to me by the end of September.
I think the removal of the headphone jack has left a bad taste in people's mouths and it's going to take a while to recover. Not saying the 7 isn't selling well. Because it is, I am sure. I just think its demand is not on par with the 6.

Well, my wife and I voted with my wallets and decided not to support Apple's latest shenanigans. The removal of the headphone jack was a deal breaker for my wife, and to some degree me as well. Considering that there is nothing special about my wife that would cause her to vote this way (she's not an audiophile like me), I can see many more people feeling the same way.
I'm sticking to my iPhone 6s Plus and Note 7 (post replacement).

Over time they won't have any 3.5mm left at all.
That's what I said and I am still 100% behind my words in that regard.

Wireless and Bluetooth is hopeless for headphones, not only do they not sound as good but guaranteed every now and again they will be flat when you want to use them, been there done that and not interested in adapters, what about us parents with teenagers we supposed to buy them Bluetooth headphones and then more chargers and leads to wreck, how many lightening cables do they go through now Apple and you want them to have adapters on hand lol.
