Easiest way to stop all these unwanted changes, is to stop supporting the manufacturers by not buying their products that force these changes. But this needs to be done by enough people to make the manufacturers wake up and see that people will not put up with forced changes that they do not want and never asked for. But people will continue to moan, instead of actively doing something about it, en-mass...

This is in the first place because of haters that we lost features and get forced into some.
This is what happen when you can't tell anymore when the community want because everything receive a huge number of negative comments, markets analyst can't do their jobs, and they just force the users into what is the easiest for them and convince casuals who get easily fooled by "Wide + Ultra-Wide + 2x2MP = 4 camera = better than 3 camera Wide + Ultra-Wide + Telephoto".

Sony is still keeping them because they don't have enough fans to support them no matter what they do, if they remove the jack and SD, they'll lose the remaining few customers they have as of now.
So basically with a large fanbase, companies are free to do things that'll make them more money and rely on the fans to defend them

A simple example Sony 1 and 5 II and III have a 3.5mm jack, SIM / SD card slot and are waterproof - IP68.
What is Apple's purpose then? Paying a much more for the same memory size becoause we cant buy fast 256-512 GB SD card? With a 3.5mm jack we have a choice of cable or BT headphones, while buying a telephone without we have no choice.
And then even a stupid wire to iPhone its 3-4 times more expensive than the market price.

Next, removal of screen so Apple can sell you their bluetooth glasses that needs to be connected to your iPhone, which is going to be just a trackpad.

With that said, i'm not defending the removal of the headphone jack or anything, i hate this trend too and wish it would stop but we can't do anything about it unfortunately

And the worst, first Samsung and Chayomi are going to make fun, but then in a few months you will see how they end up copying Apple as it has happened hahahahaha and then those of more manufacturers .. What is going to happen in countries that there is no sim?

A good move. A fully portless iPhone will be an interesting thing to see.

Removal of headphone jack is still the worst thing Apple did in the last 5 years. My brother rocks only iPhone since 2007. He hates AirPods and still uses wired ones. I can't stand them either. Another thing to charge like smart watches and BT controllers. And it will sometimes disconnect for no reason. Kills battery faster too.

Apple wasn't the first to remove headphone jack but they made it an awful trend.

At this point Apple just needs to get cancelled. It's responsible for creating all of these stupid and not user friendly trends that every single Android brand decided to copy. Maybe without Apple, Samsung and every other brand can start thinking for themselves and not blindly follow and copy whatever Apple does
