According to leaked photos of the iPhone SE 2, Apple is readying the release of their first new device since 2016 to feature the classic 3.5mm headphone jack.
In addition to the old-school audio port, the rumored iPhone SE 2 will feature a glass back for wireless charging. The current SE has an aluminum back with small glass panels located at the top and bottom of the phone.
Apple did away with the ubiquitous audio jack in late 2016 upon the release of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but the small-form iPhone SE retained the port. While some lauded the "courageous" decision to push smartphone technology into the future, others criticized the tech giant for marketing the loss of a standard feature on a flagship device as a win for consumers.
In the years since most iPhone fanatics have embraced the jack-less lifestyle, investing in Bluetooth headphones like Apple's popular AirPods or using a proprietary lightning-to-headphone converter with old wired cans.
Others who jumped ship to Google's Pixel (headphone jack included), and were disappointed by the loss of the 3.5mm jack on the Pixel 2, may be inspired to switch back to Apple if the rumors are true.
