Apple Plans to Ruin the iPhone SE Too

first_img We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Mobile phones have advanced to a point where there just aren’t that many meaningful new features to add to them. That sounds like a good thing, but it’s leading to bad decisions. In order to make phones seem new each year, manufacturers keep introducing changes that actually make the products worse.The prime example of this is the iPhone 7. Yes, aspects of it are objectively better, like the camera and processors. But is the phone better enough than its immediate predecessor to make the pricey upgrade worth it, especially when it shares the same body shape? Even worse, are these improvements worth the damning design flaw that is the lack of a headphone jack? Unfortunately, it seems consumers were satisfied enough by these compromises that future iPhones will be similarly ruined, including the rumored iPhone SE2.The original 2016 iPhone SE was positioned as the “budget iPhone.” It mixed and matched pieces from older iPhones like the body of the iPhone 5S and the guts of an iPhone 6S. But regardless of price, the iPhone SE’s manageable 4-inch screen size and, yes, headphone jack made it far and away the best iPhone on the market. It’s my personal smartphone.If rumors Macotakara are to be believed, rumors gathered from iPhone casemakers, the upcoming iPhone SE2 will maintain some of the upsides of the original. The LCD screen will remain four inches. It won’t receive every recent iPhone gimmick like Face ID, 3D Touch, dual cameras, and maybe not wireless charging. However, it will have a vastly improved A10 Fusion chip as well as Touch ID and NFC for Apple Pay. So far so good. Too bad then that this report suggests the iPhone SE2 will also remove the headphone jack.That last part is a real shame because this phone could launch as early as May, around the time early iPhone SE adopters might be looking for an upgrade. But frankly removing functionality as fundamental as plugging in universal headphones is still a complete dealbreaker to me. It’s Apple at its most grossly anti-consumer and its tragic seeing the rest of the industry follow its lead. Oh well. I guess the iPhone SE really was the Last Good iPhone.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro Have More Cameras, More ProblemsApple Arcade Launches Next Week Stay on targetlast_img
