The evidence is mounting that Apple is going to ditch the headphone jack on the next iPhone.

Instead of using that old 3.5 mm standard headphone jack, people will have to plug their wired headphones into the Lightning port, where you plug in the charger, to listen to music.

Of course, they could also connect wireless headphones using a Bluetooth connection.

Although in the short term it may be frustrating to consumers — well, absolutely infuriating to some — there are a lot of advantages for Apple to eschew this more than 100-year-old technology in favor of the super fast Lightning port.
