Apple Is planning on reducing the thickness of iPhone 7 and replacing the 3.5mm Headphone Jack with Lightning-Based EarPods.
Apple has been reducing the thickness of its iPhone almost every year. The sleek and stylish phones are trending nowadays.

Over the years, due to the increasing thinness of the iPhone, the headphone port which is 3.5mm has become almost as thick as the device.
The question now arises whether Apple will ever consider reducing the thickness of the headphone port too. A new report answers the same question we have been wondering about.
The answer is yes! The Apple team is thinking exactly the same. A reliable Japanese blog, Macotakara reports that Apple is ready to remove its mainstream 3.5mm headphone jack in the upcoming iPhone 7.
In the new device, the entire thickness will reduce by nearly 1mm. iPhone 6S, which is the latest phone from the company, is already very thin.
The idea of reducing the upcoming phone by another millimeter is quite fascinating. But the problem is that, with already very thin devices, is there any need to reduce the thickness?
Apple will now want support from headphone vendors to make adopters. The new adopters will allow the traditional headphones to be connected to the phone’s lightning connector.
Or, simply they would make wired-headphones with Lightning connectors. The manufacturers have yet not produced wired-headphones, but current iPhones support the innovation.
Apple is also rumored to build a new pair of its own new EarPods that connect via Lightning. They will ship with the new iPhones most likely.
The new idea from the company is probably the most inconvenient decision ever taken by the Cupertino giant if true.
It will be a headache to buy accessories separately because Apple has decided to exclude the port from the device.
And, those who want to use some specific headphones or earphones with their device have to stop thinking about that option too.
