Love the Community, 14 Jul 2022You call the audiophile community backwards? Bluetooth can&... moreApple does not care for a near zero category of users. Audiophiles are such a small group that it is absolutely out of interest. Not to mention that calling someone an "audiophile" and then listening to the music on a phone is... absurd.
You want to do different? Get another phone.
And yes, going back to abandoned tech is going backwards. Audiophiles are probably the most backwards going group of people, resistant to all new technology for an "analogue" feel of music. Childish nonsense.

      blue, 14 Jul 2022Why would Apple move backwards?You call the audiophile community backwards? Bluetooth can't even do high impedance right. I just want the iPhone to fully power something like a HD600 headphones while I go outside for a walk/exercise or go to a train with this or anything. I'd wear any B+ to S class overears that Crinacle ranked for my iPhone and I will never use the bad solution to a problem that Apple only made up and that is the TWS earphones.

        Its comparable to my homeland guy Andy Warhol which born in Slovakia and was genius on his own.
        This is the same.
        Hope company like Motorola or Xiaomi will hire Johny Ive.
        Such talent left for nothing is bad for bussiness.

          Samath N8 808 owner, 14 Jul 2022There ain't nothing left for Ive to do anyways in Appl... moreDesigning for Apple is more than makind "another camera island". It is creating a unique design and style, which would be functional, stylish and inspiring. A style that would work for another four years. A style that would be copied by others for the next years. You don't draw this in a week.

            There ain't nothing left for Ive to do anyways in Apple. Apple is not flexible now.
            Steve Jobs and Ive supported each other a lot, one of the rare people who got Jobs' support, but Jobs still left him and us too early...

            What do you think is Ive's role now? He made colourful PC's, he designed iPod, iPad, iPhone. Does innovation even exist anymore?
            Just designing the next camera island of iPhone, is this what Ive the Genius was born/made for?

            I'm glad he's moving on to a place where he can be the boss. No need to be sad. In fact, expect things to go better now for him.

            PS: never owned an Apple. Android guy here. But Ive is a genius, even haters can't deny this.

                                Jonny Ive has been shuffling the "Penske File" for years now. Time for him to hit the tropical beaches.

                                    Finally, the Headphone jack will come back with high impedance support on the iPhone. Kill the market that Sony and FiiO dominated. There could be someone with an Abyss Diana wanting to plug it on a flagship smartphone.

                                      Have huge respect for Ive but his designs are old now. Other phone companies are making better designs and honestly speaking iPhone 13 pro max looks to ugly I literally ditched it for it's design. Nothing Phone 1 looks far better. John Ive stepping down could mean that the world could get better a iPhone design. If that's what it means.
