Have we covered the fact that it doesn't have a headphone jack yet? Because I hate that.

Of course the iPhone 7/7 Plus has a headphone jack.

Actually, it has two different kinds. One is called a Lightning port. The other is a 3.5mm headphone jack at the end of a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, which is included in the box with every purchase.

The iPhone 7s top features: It sets Apple tech back 10 years, looks the same as the last 5 phones, and still can't do as much as a Samsung.
Lol, what?

...yes, and you can charge it while travelling with external battery ...ooh wait, you need another adapter ( which is not free ). And then you go to your Mac..oooh wait, you need your old headphones, because Mac doesn't have Lightning port. That's very comfortable :-)))
