Goodbye Headphone Jack, Hello AirPods
As Apple released new iPhones over the years, there were some things that the users liked a lot and some that people did not.

They were curious and worried as well about the fact that why and how did Apple decide to eliminate the headphone, Jack. Upon asking, Apple said that they decided to remove the headphone Jack because they wanted to be innovative and smart in the smartphone industry and different from everyone else.
Other companies and users argued that this decision was taken by Apple because they wanted their phones to look sleeker, water resistant and have more speakers in them. Air pods were one such addition. It wasn’t a bad decision at all because they were stress and tangle free but this was a change that people could not digest at first.
When The Home Button Got A Makeover
The home button of the iPhone repair, which was very famous back in its time, was also redesigned in the new smartphones. This step was also taken in order to make the smartphone look more sleek.
