    While the expected iPhone 7/6SE upgrades and subtle design revisions may not feel compelling enough to prompt 6s or even 6 owners to switch to a “new” iOS handheld, some iFans no longer covered by a warranty probably don’t have a choice but to give up their old precious.

    While all the 3.5mm headphone jack omission talks and controversies surrounding the next-gen iPhones, dubbed 7 or 6SE, are technically still hypotheticals, the odds of Apple deciding against the traditional audio connector removal at the eleventh hour can almost no longer be calculated.

    Google wants a piece of the Amazon-controlled smart speaker action, the latter in turn plans to go after Apple and Spotify in the uber-challenging, jam-packed music streaming arena, while Samsung may also have something akin to the Echo in the pipeline.

    While 2017 looks pretty much certain to be the road-opening year of sharper, not-necessarily-pricier OLED iPhones, the jury is still out on whether we’ll also see Apple adopt curved display technology manufactured by Samsung in 12 or 24 months.
