Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is just as pissed off about the iPhone 7's reported lack of a headphone jack as you are.

Speaking to the Australian Financial Review, Woz said that “if [the iPhone 7] is missing the 3.5mm earphone jack, that’s going to tick off a lot of people.”


“I would not use Bluetooth,” he continued. “I don’t like wireless. I have cars where you can plug in the music, or go through Bluetooth, and Bluetooth just sounds so flat for the same music.”

If the iPhone 7 does indeed get rid of the jack—and every sign indicates this is the case— Woz said he’ll probably just use an adaptor to continue using his custom earbuds. We’re sure Apple will be happy to sell him one at a discount.


“Ticked off” about the headphone jack or not, Woz admits that “Apple is good at moving towards the future.”

This future will just require a little bit of dongle hell. At least until Bluetooth gets better.
