According to reports from Fortune, Woz hates the idea of an iPhone without a headphone jack…
Get ready… it’s coming, yet again. Can you hear it? It’s getting closer!
Change! Change is coming!!
I remember back before the Lighting connector was introduced with Apple’s iPhone 5. The entire world lost its mind every time Apple would make changes to its proprietary 30 pin connector; and it happened often enough between the release of the 3rd generation iPod in 2003 and the release of the Lightning connector nearly four (4) years ago in September of 2012 that the wounds are still fresh. Changes to the connector meant charging cables, cradles and other accessories wouldn’t work with the newer devices, requiring you to not only shoulder the expense for the new device, but for all new speaker, sync and charging accessories as well.
It made owning an iPod risky; and it made buying a new one all that more expensive.
