I have lost the minuscule headphone adapter supplied with my iPhone, and misplaced the pods that came with it (not that it would matter because, despite the fact that they sound okay, they are ill fitting and diminish the pleasure of listening to music anyway).
Which means I am unable to listen to my rendition of George Michael’s “Faith.” Surely my adequate headphone collection would afford me the luxury of private listening? Nope. The phone jack is an assholish lightning port.
So, because someone believed that an additional microscopic speaker for inaudible stereophonic playback was more important than a proper audio jack, I’m out of luck.
Bad move, Apple.
