The headphone jack will disappear from most premium smartphones in the comming years

Didn't think it was a big deal when Apple dropped the headphone jack from the iPhone 7? This year will see the humble 3.5mm port removed from a lot more devices.

2017: The year you'll lose your earphone jack The earphone jack will vanish from most premium cell phones before the year's over

A year ago I expounded on how Apple's choice to drop the earphone jack from the iPhone 7 implied the start of the end for the humble 3.5mm port, and I gave it 10 years until the port was wiped out. 

Interesting that when I made that expectation many inhaled a murmur of alleviation since ten years is quite a while in tech, and that it would be years before Android equipment OEMs started taking without end their dearest connector. 

I never said anything of the sort. Indeed, even before the iPhone 7 was discharged, and it wasn't yet certain whether Apple had dropped the port, I composed the accompanying: 

"... in the event that Apple drops it for the iPhone and the iPad, different organizations won't have the capacity to oppose replicating the move. Gracious, beyond any doubt, they may hold out at to start with, yet inevitably, they will all take action accordingly." 

Indeed, it's as of now happened, and the snowball is social occasion force. 

Not exclusively is the earphone jack gone from the most recent iPhone, yet the HTC Bolt, Moto Z, and LeEco cell phones have as of now destroyed the jack, and talk has it that Samsung's chosen to do likewise with its up and coming lead Galaxy S8. 

Regarding why everybody will drop the earphone jack, here are the top reasons: 

Apple's begun doing it 

The parts cost cash, and furthermore adds to the gathering costs 

That gap permits earth, tidy, water, and irregular pocket schmoo to get into the gadget 

I anticipate that before the finish of 2017 the greater part of the highest point of the line cell phones won't have an earphone jack, and that it will entirely soon a short time later be viewed by most purchasers as an indication of a "financial plan" gadget.
