Teknokia.com - In accordance with the estimates, in a launch event held on Wednesday, Apple announced that the iPhone's latest smartphone, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Both hosts do not have the connector jack 3.5 mm audio or physical "home" button.
The new earphone for iPhone (named EarPods) is now embedded directly into the Lighting Connector that also used for charging and transferring data. An adapter jack audio 3.5 mm port Lightning takes part that included in the sales package to plug in the earphones to the iPhone.

As for the physical button of a traditional "home" now moved by the new key type is  static, immobile in mechanics when pressed, and give feedback in the form of vibrations instead of "click" on a physical button.

What is the reason?

Why did Apple remove two iconic features, which before these both features were always present in every generation of the iPhone?

On the stage of the event, Apple audio buzzing that the future is wireless connection. Therefore, Apple launched the wireless headphone called AirPods and planted a wireless chip audio W1 on iPhone 7.

But when talking to Buzzfeed, Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering at Apple and exposing the real reason Riccio, i.e. to save space the already cramped inside the shell of the iPhone.

"The old Connector was 50 this year-the shape is just a hole containing the air-sit there and confiscate the space very valuable," said Riccio, as summarized teknokia.com, Thursday (8/9/2016).
According to him, the presence of 3.5 mm audio connector that makes Apple the hassles in adding new features, such as the two-lens camera systems belong to iPhone 7 Plus which also seized a spot in the "belly" of mobile phone.

"The place used by the headphone jack is clashing with camera technology, then the processor, and also the battery," said Ricci. "When there was a modern solution which better, it seemed unthinkable to sustain (audio jack)."

Briefly appears slanted accusations that Apple deliberately remove the analog audio connector 3.5 mm force users to play music in order that the original locked through Digital Rights Management (DRM). This locking can be done through Lightning claiming the port transmits data in digital form.

However, this allegation is disputed by SVP Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller Apple. "It has little to do with content management or DRM-free pure allegations a conspiracy theory," he said.
