By a huge factor!
A typical BT connection operates at 3.3V/4-6mA /115200BAUD, -> 13.2mW
a typical earjack consumes 0.1mW-1mW.
Let alone the other BT-chip + modulator+headphones

A small adapter will be available to plug incompatible headphones into the iPhone 7.
To save everyone who feels like crying because of innovation.

For some reason, this annoys me.
I think this is the rumour stages only at the moment, but it appears that Apple are getting the nerf bat out on headphones and tying their product to Beats ear buds (wireless).
In my opinion, this is going to hurt third party manufacturers and, if it comes to fruition, my next mobile won't come from Apple. I suppose third parties will overcome the obstacle at some point but I, personally, find this an unfair move.
What do you think?
