I just got my iPhone 7 Plus delivered last night, so I’m a week late to the party, but I felt I had to share some thoughts on the first 12 hours with the phone.
The issue I take with Apple’s apparent approach is that they are probably going to ship Lightning headphones in the box with the new iPhone 7. While I will fully stand by my position that the headphone jack needs to go, I think it only makes sense to remove it if the next step in headphones is wireless.
I wanted to take a minute and explain why I think the iPhone 6/6s design is still the most boring, most obviously compromised vision of what the iPhone deign should be since its inception.

You might be tempted to install the iOS 10 beta on your iPhone or iPad, but trust me when I tell you it’s not worth the risks or headaches yet. We’re not even to the public beta yet, and by then I would expect things to be in better shape, but this is not a release that Apple wants in the hands of everyday people.
