That Hissing Sound Is the Last Bit of Air Leaking From Apple's Balloon


Apple used to guard details about a new iPhone more closely than Fort Knox, but that doesn’t seem to be the case any more. The shift has been glaring with the iPhone 7, slated to appear on Wednesday. It’s widely believed that the new iPhone has no headphone jack. Sound is piped to the user through a set of EarPods that connect through its Lightning port, or a dongle that accepts devices with a 3.5mm plug. Its volume buttons are on its outer body, and it has no home button at all. Its replacement is based on the Force Touch trackpad.
