As he say "it's typical Apple". For me it's no problem, as I have a good wireless charger, but if people wanna buy their first Iphone, they must dish up with the gold. Apple will be Apple. Now I better understand the OLED screen and lower price. I was really angry over the missing headphone jack when the 7 came without, but I have got a great pair of Audeze SINE with a "cipher" lightning cable that give a real great sound. No wirelesss headphones to me.
