Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had some strong words for Apple today. Customers have been frustrated with the decision to remove the headphone jack from the upcoming iPhone 7. The idea that we won't be allowed to plug in headphones is extremely disheartening to some people.

Apple hasn't confirmed the news, though it isn't exactly a well-kept secret. We don't even know if there will be a new iPhone in September. The new headphones will be called "EarPod" and they will wirelessly connect to the iPhone.

Customers who want to use their existing earbuds will have to buy an adaptor that connects to iPhone's Lightning port - or whatever port the new iPhone will have, as that is also rumored to change.

Still, Wozniak isn't exactly happy about it all.

"If it's missing the 3.5mm earphone jack, that's going to tick off a lot of people," Mr. Wozniak told The Australian Financial Review. "I would not use Bluetooth … I don't like wireless. I have cars where you can plug in the music, or go through Bluetooth, and Bluetooth just sounds so flat for the same music."

Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple in the mid-1970s. Wozniak left in 1985, but still advises Apple.

He said that would probably use the adaptor to connect his headphones to the next iPhone and said that is attached to the accessories that he currently has.

"Mine have custom ear implants, they fit in so comfortably, I can sleep on them and everything. And they only come out with one kind of jack, so I'll have to go through the adaptor," he said. "If there's a Bluetooth 2 that has higher bandwidth and better quality, that sounds like real music, I would use it. But we'll see. Apple is good at moving towards the future, and I like to follow that."

He also said that he thinks more highly of the USB-C port rather than the port that Apple currently uses.

"One of my favorite Android phones, the Nexus 5X, uses that connector. It gives it a higher level in my own thinking. I think USB-C is going to be the future," he said.
