After the decision to remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it seems Apple now has the urge to continue its villainous spree with attention now focused on the MacBook Pro with Retina display.
MacRumours has learned that Apple has been sending out a survey to users of the sharp-screened MacBook Pro model, asking them if they use the 3.5mm headphone port. Presumably, if the majority of people say they in fact don’t use it, it’ll face the guillotine and be gone.
But Apple may not be stopping at just the headphone port, as the company has also asked users if they use the SD card slot as well as questions regarding battery life. It’s been reported that the new MacBook Pro lineup, which is expected to be revealed in October, will come with four USB Type-C ports and the much-loved headphone port. This suggests any changes from the data Apple is collecting now, won’t have an immediate impact on the refreshed range of laptops.
The new models are expected to be quite bare in the connections department though, with no HDMI, SD card, USB Type-A or even a MagSafe connection.
