While smartphone giant Apple has already made its move by removing the headphone jack from the new iPhone 7, there are many smartphone manufacturers that are ready to follow the suite. The latest audio device class 3.0 introduced by USB – IF has apparently indicated that the era of headphone jack is nearing end. This new device specification has made way for connecting the headphones into USB Type-C port. The removal of audio jack would free the smartphones from multiple ports.
