It was the most controversial point before the presentation of the iPhone 7 and continues to be a month later. We are talking about the headphone port removal 3.5mm, one more reason why Apple, even without being the first company to do so, is receiving a lot of criticism. Among these criticisms are not those of Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder and, of the two geniuses, the one who really understood some hardware.
In an interview with TechRadar, iWoz says that “There weren't many people to use it. I never used it. For those who use it, you can buy a small adapter". It is true that buying an adapter is not among anyone's plans, but it is also true that this adapter is included in the box of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, something that reduces – does not eliminate – much of the problem. But these new statements contradict what Wozniak himself declared at the time he learned of Apple's plans.
Wozniak changes his mind and now welcomes the removal of the 3.5mm port
Initially, Wozniak said the change was going to cause many users to stop buying the iPhone 7 due to the absence of the 3.5mm headphone port, something that iPhone News can confirm by the comments you wrote, especially during the summer. What will have made him change his mind? Well, if we keep in mind that iWoz always says what he thinks and that he didn't give any more explanations, we can speculate and say that it didn't seem right at first but that, seen in perspective and looking forward, Apple is right.
On the other hand, in the interview he also talked about Apple watch, a device that also spoke badly in the past and with which he has also changed his mind, since he now loves it. Wozniak says that “I use it a lot in things in my life … I enjoy using it and having it. And when I don't use it, I don't even know that I wear it".
Reading this part of the interview, I am left with the feeling that Steve Wozniak is doing a little what many users, something he already said Steve Jobs when asked why he didn't do market research: Apple's qx-CEO said something like “people don't know what they want until they see it". And it is that if the last movements of those of Cupertino have been able to change the opinion of someone as important as Wozniak, who am I to oppose them?
