No ear buds
less pieces to manufacturer = Apple saving money but not the consumer. Shame on them.
"Bits" are what Apple takes away from every new product release of very same product. They take away the earphone jack, then the power adapter, then the physical home button, the "opening the package experience" (so many YouTubers will really be missing that one!), a little bit here, and little bit there.... adds up to Lots of Bits.
"Bytes" is what I say to Apple with every new release that takes away one or more of many favorite features (or forces a lame, buggy major update on you): "Oh, that bytes!" "Byte me, Apple!"
