    Or it might have a lot to do with putting the phone in your pocket upside down.
    Or it might have to do with keeping things out of the open ports on the iphone while in your pocket (upside down).
    Or it might have to do with having the digital input and analog input on the same side of the phone.
    Or it might have to do with upcoming accessories we haven't seen that require the lightning port AND the headphone jack be next to each other.
    Or it might have to do with any one of a hundred different theories people have as to why Apple decided to change it with this variant of the iPhone.

    ...or maybe Apple just did it to make you question why they did it. You can google if you want proof of the request being made for years by owners of iPhone's, i don't care either way, lol.
    I don't expect you to care. And it's just a discussion. "google it to see for yourself" is the easy way to weasel your way out of an answer that you can't provide during a discussion.
    I just say that if we're gonna start throwing things out there (i.e. motoleo), let's be better about not just throwing it out there.

    I didn't weasel my way out of anything, i just understand that proving my point to you isn't a prerequisite for posting it.

    Yup...you figured it out kiddo.

    But honestly (as pitiful as your attempt to bait me into scouring the web for "proof" was), why proof do you want? That people actually wanted the headphone jack on the bottom? Proof of that is as simple as searching out how people put their iPhone's into their pockets, and over the years people asking why, if they put their iPhone's in their pockets one way, would they put the headphone jack in a location that eats up some of the length of it in their pocket (from being upside down)...tall people who use the handsfree headset need the length for comfort and to keep the earbuds from falling out...you could probably find a million threads online referencing this from the various blogs and forums across the net...

    Like i said kiddo, I'm not going to do your homework for you, i made a statement that it was because people wanted it there...you could attribute that to any number of reasons people list, or just keep telling yourself that you think it's not true. Again, it makes no difference to me, lol.

    I asked for proof because it was brought up. Simply because of that, mija.

    If I could be helpful, I could just post was Steve Jobs said about the jack belonging on the bottom and we can get this thread closed.

    Just curious. Has the "jack on the bottom" idea been patented by Apple? I'm not looking forward to a lawsuit, if i get a Samsung.Ha, ha.
    Galaxy Nexus has the jack on the bottom. I'm sure there are a few others.

    I think it came down to a construction issue over a usability decision. The jack on the bottom adds stability to the construction and it allows for an unbroken antenna on the top part of the device. I'm sure there are lots of reasons for the change and I would bet this is one of the rate times that Apple chose construction over function.

    You're asking for proof because you disagree...where's your proof in adverse?

    This is a stupid and pointless thread. The headphone jack is now on the bottom. It's not moving for at least a year, if then. Time to just accept it for what it is and move on. SMH
