There is talk that the new upcoming Pixel device this year could get rid of the familiar 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. The basis of this rumor is a post in the comments section of 9to5Google, but it is worth noting that tech site did clarify that it has not been able to confirm yet if its source (there is only one) has enough basis to claim so.
Here is some good news for iOS mobile users, especially those who already own the headphone jack-less iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and are looking to get hold of wireless earphones -- Apple’s AirPods are made available to order from the tech giant’s Online Store.
This may not be welcome news for Apple’s fans. It appears that the AirPods, the tech giant’s stylish headphones for its latest flagship devices (the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus), will not be ready for release in time for the busy holiday shopping season. The same goes for the BeatsX headphones, too.
The year 2016 saw mobile giants such as Apple and Motorola decide on doing away with the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack in their respective high profile smartphone releases. Is the world’s biggest seller of smartphones also doing the same in the near future?
This should be welcome news to Apple fans. The tech giant’s might be releasing its wireless AirPods during the holiday shopping season after all -- at least, as suggested by an updated AirPod listing found in the website of Alza, an official Apple retailer based in the Czech Republic. The listing also mentioned an expected December ship date.
According to Apple, it needs a little more time in order to get its AirPod wireless headphones ready for general release. This means that we can not probably expect the headphones to become widely available within this month.
Owners of iPhone devices apparently would rather buy Apple’s wireless headphones than go purchase the company’s smartwatch offering, at least according to a recent survey. Indeed, in conducting a poll in the United States, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research found that 12 percent of those surveyed have plans to get Apple’s wireless AirPods, which cost $159.
Apple will be having an event in a few days, specifically this coming September 7th in the city of San Francisco in California at exactly 10 AM Pacific Time, and many industry watchers and end users alike are fully expecting the tech giant to officially unveil its newest iPhone offering, plus highly awaited updates to its one and only wearable device to date, the Apple Watch.
When LG unveiled its newest flagship device, the LG G5, at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain in February early this year, the smartphone wowed the world with its cool, modular approach to mobile design.
The next generation of iPhone devices could feature much enhanced audio capabilities, but it might do so at the expense of the familiar 3.5 millimeter audio jack. Nowhereelse, a France based web site, has apparently posted images of what appears to be an iPhone 7 case. Based on the leaked photos, it looks like the iPhone 7 might really come with dual speakers (as rumored).
