iPhone 7 won’t have a headphone jack, but Apple has a trick up its sleeve to keep you happy


导读:新一代iPhone就要来了,你做好割肾的打算了吗,先别急,听说 iPhone 7抛弃3.5毫米传统耳机接口已成定局,改而和供电、数据一起走Lightning接口,苹果也为此设计了新的Lightning耳机。此外iPhone预计将推出一款新色,Home键将变为触控式。

Typically, the impending release of a new iPhone model focuses on whatever cool and exciting new features Apple has in the works. The iPhone 7, though, is a bit different. In fact, it’s not unreasonable to say that the upcoming unveiling of the iPhone 7 has been marked by controversy more than anything else.


According to a number of credible reports, Apple’s next-gen smartphone will ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. And while Apple isn’t shy about discarding popular technologies to the curb, the 3.5mm headphone jack has literally been around for more than 100 years and is as reliable and durable as it is universal.


Suffice it to say, Apple’s rumored decision to scrap the tried and true jack on the iPhone 7 has elicited no shortage of heated debates. In one widely circulated piece, Nilay Patel of The Verge argued that removing the headphone jack was nothing short of "user-hostile." In turn, we pointed out just a few weeks ago that Apple’s disdain for the 3.5mm headphone jack would make the iPhone 7 Apple’s riskiest iPhone release yet. After all, with no new groundbreaking features rumored to be part of the iPhone 7 design, removing the headphone jack might persuade a good number of users who might otherwise upgrade to simply stick with what they already have.

传闻苹果公司决定iPhone7将不再将沿用3.5毫米耳机接口,关于该决定我只能说,它成功引起了大家的讨论。美国科技博客TheVerge的主编尼莱·帕特尔(Nilay Patel)吐槽没有耳机接口简直就是“违背用户使用习惯”(糟糕的用户体验)。几周前我们曾指出iPhone7抛弃传统耳机接口的行为可能使iPhone7成为苹果史上命运最不明朗的iPhone。毕竟,在没有颠覆性新功能的情况下,抛弃耳机接口可能使大量的苹果用户选择继续使用旧手机。

Now for anyone worried about their beloved 3.5mm headphone jack completely disappearing, there’s hope on the horizon. According to a new research note from Deutsche Bank, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 will ship with a Lighting to 3.5mm dongle, thereby making the transition much more seamless. If this report proves to be true, it would certainly be a smart move by Apple. Indeed, it’s much more user-friendly than shipping Lightning headphones and requiring users who prefer using their old 3.5mm headphones to dole out cash for a dongle.


Apple must recognize that abandoning the headphone jack is a huge and risky move. In turn, it probably appreciates that the transition away from the 3.5mm headphone jack won’t happen overnight and might even be met by a wave of backlash. That being the case, shipping a dongle -- presumably one that’s not too clunky -- inside of every new iPhone 7 box appears to be more than a reasonable compromise.


Meanwhile, Deutsche Bank analysts also anticipate that the iPhone 7 will ship with a new color, a newly re-designed home button similar in operation to the trackpad on the MacBook, "professional class water-proofing" and more.

于此同时,德意志银行分析预测新一代iPhone还将作出以下改变,将推出一款新色;原来按压式的home键将变成更小的触控式按键和MacBook上的trackpad 类似;外观上看起来更加专业,具有防水功能。
