Over 300,000 Petition Against Apple Killing the Headphone Jack on iPhone 7

The iPhone 7 is not even official yet and people are already voting against one of its rumored features.

The iPhone 7 may or may not have an 3.5mm headphone jack. The rumors and leaks go both ways. A recent Wall Street Journal article has rekindled the controversy. The report leaned towards Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Now a petition against removing the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 has already gathered over 300,000 supporters on SumOfUs. The petition "Keep the standard headphone jack in your iPhones!" has already been launch in January when the first wave of leaks pointed towards Apple killing the headphone jack in favor of the digital audio via the Lightning port.

I don't mind Apple removing the headphone jack as long as they bundle Lightning EarBuds with the iPhone 7. The petition makes the case that the decision creates a ton of electronic waste. The bigger problem is though that people do not recycle correctly. It can't be an argument to not move forward with innovation.

If you do not like the Lightning headphone option, there is always the iPhone SE. This is the iPhone for people who are against innovation and like things how they are and have been. As the iPhone SE is apparently selling well, Apple might keep it around and upgrades it with a faster CPU each year.
