    When it was discovered that Apple removed the classic headphone port from their newest iPhones, a good deal of members openly voiced their disdain. Now that's it's been a while, I'm curious to know how many of you have gotten along without the headphone port? Has it been a difficult adjustment or a simple adjustment? Do you even miss the old headphone port?

    I still have mine (headphone port), but since picking up some AirPods it hasn't been an issue!

    I'd like to think that anyone who primarily uses wireless headsets aren't all that affected, but that's just my personal opinion...

    Didn't really bother me at all. I use the adapter for wired and now I have my BeatsX.

    I didn't think most people would have an issue after a certain point. It is what it is and we can either adjust or stay ticked off, right?...

    Yeah, with a 7 Plus I don't need to charge my phone and listen to music at the same time anyway.

    Exactly that's how you solve the issue of no headphone jack or use more lightning phones and not charge.

    It bothers me a little because I used it in my car while charging but there are adapters for that. Turns out it's not that big of a deal. It's been 6 months and I have yet to buy the adapter. I use my AirPods the rest of the time so I wouldn't plug in headphones anyway.

    I don't miss it one bit.
    My AirPods made using earphones a joy, which wasn't the case with other (wired) headphones.
    In the car I have a BT enabled car stereo so that's also not something to worry about for me.

    I think this is the best solution for most people. Just buy an adapter if you really need the port. I cant remember the last time i needed to listen to music and charge my phone. If having a headphone jack is REALLY that important, you can always pick up a iPhone 6s or even a Galaxy S8. Maybe on the iPhone 7s all these problems will be fixed. (wireless charging)

    I've adjusted somewhat. It's still a little annoying when I'm in a situation where my bluetooth headphones are out of battery and I left an adapter and/or the lightning ear buds someplace else. Would still rather have the headphone jack.

    This is my first iPhone in a long time and I thought that I would have been annoyed with not having the headphone jack since I was so used to it on my other phones but I don't miss it all all oddly enough.

    Do you use wireless headphones, or none at all?

    I have wireless ones but I hardly ever use them. Mostly I just use the Apple ones that came with the phone.

    No issues not being able to charge at the same time?

    Nope. The battery on the 7+ has been great for me so I honestly only charge my phone when I go to bed. I'm not a very heavy user though so I'm sure that makes a difference.

    Cool thanks for the follow-up! Good point about the battery, I'm going for the Plus next round!
