Apple stiffs consumers by deleting 3.5mm audio jack from iPhone 7?
So you bought your new iPhone and once you saved up all your hard earned cash (or simply maxed out your credit card) you invested your time in research into a plethora of audio accessories, and once you’ve emotionally committed you complemented your smartphone (which was incidentally made from cheap slave labour) with all the overpriced docking stations and audio ‘docks’, again made from cheap slave labour.
Enjoying your newly acquired audio accessories, for barely a year, your ‘brand faithful’ mind alerts you to desire the newest smartphone from Apple, but this one comes with the newest (and apparently greatest) ‘lightning’ connector.
Well now you just can’t sit your new iPhone on your previous audio ‘investments’, you are ‘forced’ to buy new ones, which have not really come out yet, only just a sprinkle from a few suppliers.
That’s the Apple way, you excuse them.
There can and should be no doubt that the purpose of Apple or any other company for that matter is to make ‘profit’, and rightly so.
Apple doesn’t want to make any friends, if it did it would be at the pub waiting for you, therefore any decision Apple makes is to boost profits.
The above ‘connector issue’ scenario illustrates how a company ‘forces’ you to buy new products which you realistically did not have to, in order to use its new generation product.
In the ‘audio’ world it is accepted that the standard ‘consumer’ connector is the 3.5mm audio jack. There are other smartphone manufacturers that used the 2.5mm jack, but that went down like a lead balloon. Some other manufacturers like Motorola had the audio going out through the phone’s USB port.
Apple’s next generation iPhone 7 may not be entirely for YOUR benefit. Maybe a minor upgrade that companies ‘feed’ the people as the next exciting feature, which was realistically was disabled in the software/firmware.
Will you be one of the many millions justifying your purchase being a brand loyal muppet?
How can you really trust a company that was involved in stock market fraud, a company that is dodgy with YOUR personal information?
We do not support or recommend Apple products whatsoever.
