THE BASICS: Timothy B. Lee of Vox writes that Apple is renowned for their courage with their technology and this is not the first time Apple has done something revolutionary; removing the headphone jack will make for a sleeker look, and an overall better audio experience, one that Apple believes will outweigh the cons, whereas David Wheeler of CNN explains how often headphones are used in conjunction with the iPhone and offers a retort for every explanation Apple gives as to why they are ditching the audio jack in the new iPhone 7, and complains that this move was designed to get customers to spend even more money on Apple products.
