New device can’t make calls, looks great
On the heels of Apple’s iPhone X release, rumours of a leak at Apple’s California headquarters have been confirmed, indicating major changes to the much-loved iPhone on the horizon.
One Apple employee agreed to speak with The Contrarion on the condition of anonymity.
“The headphone jack was just the beginning; Apple is on a warpath to streamline the iPhone by removing features seen as archaic,” the employee said.
The leaked technical specs seem to indicate that not only will the headphone jack not be returning anytime soon, but several other features that were once considered essential are also slated for removal. Most noteworthy is the complete absence of a cellular antenna.
“While this may be a disappointment to some, I think it’s a bold move emblematic of the kind of innovation that has kept Apple at the top,” said Jeanine Fuji, a prominent technology blogger.
“It’s a real game-changer,” continued Fuji. “Sure, it’s going to ruffle a few feathers, but they aren’t the core customer. Apple knows their core customer wants a device that is marginally thinner, lacks connectivity, and looks fantastic in a commercial.”
