sales are down because apple killed the HEADPHONE JACK. its an audiophile boycott!

or sales are down because iphones got more waterproof at the same time.

sorry, audiophiles. toilet-proofing is a way bigger deal. stop tainting my anger with your facts!

  • I've never dropped a phone in water... Is that common? Further, lightning port to headphone jack exists, and an Audiophile isn't going to use an iPhone directly anyways as afaik they don't have a great DAC.
  • I've known a few people that have done it, usually when they are using their phones on the toilet or when washing dishes. I think the term audiophile is used loosely here, a true audiophile wouldn't use an iPhone to listen to music but here I think it's just referring to people who appreciate the audio quality of their music, but not necessarily trying to get the best quality possible.
