I never used the headphone jack on my phone. While I go running, I use a BT headset and my car also has BT connectivity.
Besides, an adapter is included. It's not that big of a drama.
The biggest complainers fall in the category of either:
- "I will never buy an iPhone, but now it lost the headphone jack, I will certainly NEVER going to buy one!!", raging fists included.
- People who consider everyone who buys this as "dumb" or "sheeple". However, the missing audio-jack is not a deal-breaker for most current iPhone users. There are lots of other interesting upgrades that makes current iphone users consider upgrading.
- People who, for some reason, are offended that other people buy products that they personally don't like.
The only users who have real reasons to complain, are the ones who use both the audio-jack and the lightbolt adapter at the same time (like when your car doesn't have BT yet, and use the aux-in option). But that's like 1 or 2 percent of the current iPhone users.
Oh, and I'm not an Apple "fanboy" btw, so spare me the insults
