The future iDevices won’t have the standard jack to plug headphones in

According to reports, Apple is going to be working on ways to force their customers to use specially designed earphones that won’t have to be plugged into their devices anymore with standard cords, instead using Lightning connectors.

This comes as a criticism that many people will have, but there are very good reasons for the company doing this. They will be working to create new earphones that come with many new features, that will come in part from their $3 billion acquisition of Beats. Beats is known for being one of the largest producers of headphones in the world, making that an obvious choice, but reports say that there will be a lot more advancements coming beyond audio technology, although the support for high bit rate audio is definitely coming.

The reports are saying that many of the health features are going to be built in to the earphones. This includes tracking breathing rates and many other things. Additionally, patents show that there will be more advanced microphones included that will detect where you are speaking from and automatically calibrate to get enhanced audio and make it easier to silence exterior noise that can often be a problem with unidirectional microphones.

How soon this could begin remains to be seen, since the iPhone 6 is expected to still have a headphone jack. As the release of the iWatch draws closer, though, they will likely be focusing more on easier ways to sync information without having to use outdated technology.
