Apple Makes a Change By: Caleb Britton

Apple's new iPhone 7 is without a crucial part, the headphone jack.

Without the headphone jack, consumers will have to use adapters for older devices

Apple's use of the Lightning connector adapter creates unwanted accessories for consumers to have to buy

These headphones can no longer work with new iPhone without an adapter

This tiny adapter has caused an unnecessary purchase for iPhone users

Apple's only alternative to the adapter are wireless headphones that cost $140-$170

The AirPods also have to be charged because they are wireless and Bluetooth. Not to mention easily lost

I believe that Apple could've found a way to improve the new iPhone without sacrificing the headphone jack in the process
