Microsoft has been granted a patent for an expanding audio port, which might save the 3.5mm headphone jack from its extinction.
Apple is going to pay Microsoft a licensing fee to reinstate a jack they just killed. Yeah . . . right.
Apple and Microsoft have a broad cross licensing agreement.
But i get your point.
umm....plenty of smartphones have a headphone jack
I'm not worried about the headphone jack dying off anytime soon. Don't care for music / videos on my phone & don't give a damn if people can listen to my phone calls. I use a DAP for my music listening , MrSpeakers & Audeze headphones , Schiit portable headphone amp / DAC , OPPO portable headphone amp. / DAC & many others as well as desktop headphone amp / DAC. As I said no worries about DAP's losing their headphone jacks
