Apple is going to get rid of the audio jack in its new iPhone, which is already disliked by a certain amount of loyal iPhone users.
So Samsung, which was publicly attacking Apple in the past, didn’t waste too much time to pitch at the iPhone maker during the Galaxy Note 7 unveiling event on Tuesday.
“Do you know what else it comes with? An audio jack, just saying,” Justin Denison, Samsung’s SVP of product strategy, said on stage.

Apple decided to remove audio jacks for the upcoming iPhone. It has been a subject of complaints among its loyal customer. The BBC said more than 300,000 people signed a petition urging Apple not to ditch its audio jacks.
Instead of a separate audio socket, Apple plans to use its Lightning cable port to connect headphones. By doing this, Apple could make the iPhone thinner and give a better audio performance.
Samsung, of course, doesn’t agree with Apple. Aside from the audio jacks, Samsung’s new Note 7 also has a stylus pen and a water resistant body, neither of these are expected to be part of Apple’s new iPhone.
