So it looks likely that the the iPhone will be coming on the 7th if you assume that Apple is going to follow their previous patterns. What they’ll bring us with the 7 is anyone’s guess.
Will it be slimmer? I hope not to be honest as I just don’t think that I need that extra millimetre in my pocket. Will there be a better camera? It would be nice, but I can’t say I’ll get over excited about it. Will the camera be flush at last? Now that would be good, I’d like that, but not enough to be buy a new iPhone. Better battery life? That would be nice. An iPhone 7 Pro model? Maybe, that might be good depending on the specs of course.
The big one of course is whether or not Apple will remove the headphone jack. Now that could be a deal breaker for me. A real deal breaker. I’m not sure I’m ready for that. I’m also not sure that latency on Bluetooth headphones is good enough for me to use for making music as yet.
So if the jack goes, I think I do too. Not from iOS entirely, no, that would be a step too far, but maybe I won’t keep going with the iPhone. Perhaps now would be the time to move over to Android for a while. If Apple remove the headphone jack from the iPhone now I can’t see it coming back any time soon. Also, if they do remove the jack then it won’t stop at the iPhone. It’ll be the first step. At least that’s my view anyway.
But there’s only a few days to wait now before all is revealed. Of course I expect we’ll see iOS 10 at he same time. Although I would have preferred it to be called iOSX. That would’ve been nice. Secretly (ok, not very secretly) I’d still like them to call iOS versions after something like OSX (MacOS) versions. I’d like insects, but maybe famous electronic musicians or bands would work very well too.
So there you go. We’ll know all on the 7th of September. What do you think?
