If we want to talk about the future we should know about the past of 3.5 mm audio jack which was in commercial use from 1878 there was an only Quarter inch jack used which was (6.35 mm).

The word 3.5 mm jack is so popular till now and till the best and it comes into existence from 1878 it was used by the telephone operator and like now telephone is so convenience at that time it was not. The Quarter inch (6.35 mm) Audio Jack is still used in professional equipment like electric guitars, loudspeakers, microphones.

The 3.5 mm was used for consumer electronics, but 6.35 mm is used for professional equipment because it provides a large surface area and more reliable.

Then the sad time comes when Apple takes a bold move by removing 3.5 mm audio jack from their iPhone 7 and Apple was teased a lot by other companies like Google, Samsung, OnePlus. But now they are doing the same.
