Apple phasing out the headphone jack

Post by Makyo » Wed Sep 07, 2016 10:41 pm

So apparently Apple is phasing out the headphone jack with their next generation of products. I often use a small Bluetooth speaker when I'm away from my monitors and USB interface, but since Apple doesn't permit Bluetooth to be used with apps that can record and play at the same time, I am forced to use a cable from the headphone out for the speaker.

So now it seems they are removing the headphone out; will they also be removing the block on allowing Bluetooth speakers to be used with apps like Auria? If not, I really don't know what the hell they're thinking.

Auria is an iPad-only product and they've only removed the headphone jack from iPhones. They announced updated iPads yesterday as well but those still had the jack.
