i'm all for change, if it's in the right direction, but as an audiophile who knows what gives good quality audio and what's marketing BS, I'm not a fan of the whole "lets get rid of 3.5mm jacks!" thing... People for it argue "oh well it gives room for aftermarket dac/amps!" - but anyone who has even a basic knowledge of sound science, knows that diminishing returns for dac/amps are quite low, and especially when driving portable low impedance headphones, the difference is not even noticeable - aside from the fact that most phones these days already have a decent dac/amp built in anyways - do a blind test with a galaxy s6 headphone jack vs a 300$ oppo and you will NOT be able to tell the difference. Honestly all this is going to do is create more proprietary crap, lower cost of iphone productions (don't worry, the price will still stay the same) and people will buy more crap thinking they are getting superior audio quality - and i'm going to get a heart attack from the amount of cringiness i'll endure when i hear soccer moms telling me about how I need to get a pair of beats with a new iphone to really know what good music sounds like. I see motorolla following iphones footsteps, granted they gotta follow trends to stay relevant, but i feel like google is smart enough and powerful enough to not have to get rid of the jacks...but who knows what dreams may come.
