One thing is clear, Apple’s isn’t fond of the 3.5mm headphone jack.
After removing the port from the latest iteration of the company’s iPhone, it seems Apple also has plans to remove the aging but still competent audio jack from its upcoming MacBook Pro revamp, at least if a recent customer survey is any indication.
Apple users are reporting that the Cupertino, California-based tech giant is asking customers to fill out a survey explaining what they use their MacBook Pro for, with specific questions pertaining to the headphone jack.
Shared by Twitter user @mmodelmusic, Apple asks, “Do you ever use the headphone port on your MacBook Pro with Retina display” Given Apple has ditched the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, it’s quite possible this is an indication the company also plans to nix the report from its line of laptops. It’s unclear, however, if this shift will be part of the company’s next revamped MacBook, or a future iteration of the device.
Apple is expected to reveal its revamped MacBook lineup, which reportedly feature Touch ID and a new OLED bar, this coming October.
