On September 7, the iPhone 7 was announced and Apple executives revealed a significant new feature. The company has discontinued use of the headphone jack, and has designed wireless earbuds.
These earbuds will need to be charged and will work by connecting to your phone’s bluetooth. Their self-proclaimed “courageous” statement has sparked controversy, especially amongst people who rely on the headphone jack to play music in the car, at school, or whenever they may need it. AHN girls, who definitely enjoy listening to music while studying or driving, share their thoughts on Apple’s big change.
Butler, a senior, was worried about Apple’s decision at first but has now made her peace with Apple’s decision to go wireless.

Besides the need for extra space for upgraded technology, Apple removed the headphone jack to keep up with the ever changing tech world as they strive to achieve a wireless standard.
Perez, sophomore, is impartial but admits she’ll still probably be purchasing one.
