The End of the Headphone Jack Is Not the Start of Proprietary Headphones ➝

Matt Birchler, on Nilay Patel’s pro-headphone-jack piece:

What I do know is that every single time Apple has ever removed something from their products, the same chorus of people rise up and say “it’s too soon!” But a year or so later everyone is doing the same thing and it turns out it was for the best.

I don’t know if 2016 is the exact right time to remove this port, but Apple has a pretty good track record at getting their timing on the nose for these things.
