I want to follow up on the rumor that Apple is killing the headphone jack on the upcoming iPhone 7.
The image above is of a man wearing headphones with wires attached to his hat on May 6th 1922, in the United Kingdom (via Reddit). Now, it’s unclear from the photo if the headphones use either a 6.35 mm or 3.5 mm connector, but this is just to show you how long the headphone jack has been around for.
It’s time to sunset the headphone jack. It’s lived a long life.
[sidenote: I bet that braided cord is strong as shit]
