Could this really be the truth? :)

The real truth is to get rid of the third party payment systems and make everyone stick with Apple Pay.

Pretty sure they'll just all move over to bluetooth or something. Maybe lightning, if Apple will allow it.

Well the reason I heard was to make the thing thinner. Do people really want it to be thinner? Not long ago small used to be the fad. Then Samsung came out with their giant-ass phones and now big is cool again. Thin will only last for so long.

But it could be part of the reason, yeah. But like DS says they could be configured to work with bluetooth rather easily. You'd have to buy a new device to attach, of course.

I don't think so, to be honest. After all, the iPhone 7 includes an adapter for jack devices.

Much more likely is that they wanted to free up space, and set a trend for their Beats to profit off of.

Conan O'Brien turns Apple's own classic iPod commercial against it

Apple is taking a fair deal of flak for its new wireless Bluetooth headphones, appropriately known as AirPods. Not only do they look quite goofy — like a failed attempt at bringing Spike Jonze's Her to life — but there’s genuine concern the devices will easily fall out of users’ ears. (There's even a $10 strap accessory to keep you from losing them.) Now, Conan O’Brien's late night team has crystallized the criticism in the form of a old-school iPod commercial parody.

It features the iconic dancing silhouettes with bright white AirPods trying to promote the headphones and failing as they’re ejected in the heat of a spin or head bob. It’s meant to skewer Apple, for sure, but it also raises an interesting point. It’s been 15 years since the introduction of the iPod, and more than a century since we started plugging devices into 3.5 and 6.5mm jacks. Apple says it’s time to change, but that means grappling with some realistic gripes about what we can and cannot do with wireless headphones. It would seem one of those activities that will be hard to enjoy is dancing.
