Steve Wozinak, co - founder of Apple, has finally spoken out about Apple's decision to do away with headphone Jack in iPhone 7, which is expected to launch on September 7. 

Wozinak has mentioned that the upcoming flagship product of Apple, without headphone jacks will not be well - received by users, reported The Australian Financial Review.  

"I would not use Bluetooth ... I don't like wireless," mentioned Wozinak. "I have cars where you can plug in the music, or go through Bluetooth, and Bluetooth just sounds so flat for the same music."

According to Wozinak, his iPhone has custom ear implants, and he can even sleep with them on. However, if the iPhone removes the headphone jack, people will have to use adaptors for the same purpose.

However, Wozinak has also mentioned that Apple is going towards a cleaner technology and that is something he would like to follow in the future.

Notably, this is not the first time Wozinak has spoken about Apple and its policies. Earlier in April, he expressed his concerns about Apple's low tax bill, mentioning that he doesn't like the idea of Apple being unfair, reported The Guardian.

Wozinak also had his say about Apple iWatch, mentioning that Apple has ventured into the jewelry market. However, the only difference between the different priced iWatches was the band, and that was not Apple was when it was founded.

It is to be noted that Wozinak left Apple in 1985. Since then he has developed the first programmable remote control, taught in elementary schools, built an GPS device, and launched Comic Con in Silicon Valley.

Meanwhile, Apple is yet to confirm about the specifications of the upcoming model of iPhone. In addition, the release date of Apple's flagship product is yet to be confirmed. Thus, it seems that amidst the speculations, Apple is gaining insights on what its users might want from the new iPhone.
