What is Up with the Apple Headphone Jack Situation?

One of the most interesting situations came about in the tech world earlier this year, when Apple announced their new smartphone and decided to leave out the headphone jack. Now before you are wondering, it does not mean that you are absolutely unable to use headphones with the iPhone. However, you do have to jump through some hoops, and this is what a lot of people are upset about. At the end of the day, people simply want a phone where they can do all things as easily as possible, and it is not what they are getting with the iPhone.

And we can spend a little bit of time talking about whether or not you are able to use a certain type of headphone with the iPhone. To put it simply, if you have regular wired headphones that have a headphone jack, you will need to get an adapter that is going to work with your iPhone. With the adapter, you will be able to plug it into the iPhone, and then you will plug your jack into the adapter.

If your phone is charged and you are using your headphones, it is not much of an issue at all. The adapter is small and you are not losing and quality in the sound department or anything like that. But what you are going to do have to do is figure out a way to charge your phone and listen to music at the same time, because you are going to have to use the same socket for the charger and the adapter. This is where many users are not happy, because it almost means they are being forced to buy the wireless headphones.
