Does The iPhone 8 Have A Headphone Jack? The Truth!

You're thinking about getting an iPhone 8, but you're not sure it's exactly what you need. Many iPhone users were also skeptical about the iPhone 7 because it didn't have a headphone jack. In this article, I'll answer the question, “Does the iPhone 8 have a headphone jack?” and explain why the iPhone 8 is a slight improvement over the iPhone 7 when it comes to listening to music.

Does The iPhone 8 Have A Headphone Jack?

No, the iPhone 8 does not have a headphone jack. In fact, the exterior of the iPhone 8 is very similar to that of the iPhone 7. However, if you still prefer using wired headphones, the iPhone 8 will be a much better option for you than the iPhone 7.

Many users quickly pointed out that you couldn't charge an iPhone 7 and listen to music with wired headphones at the same time because the Lightning port was used for both charging the iPhone and connecting your headphones.

Fortunately, the iPhone 8 features wireless charging, so you'll be able to charge your iPhone without occupying the Lightning port! That way, you can plug your headphones into the Lightning port while wirelessly charging your iPhone using AirPower!

So, while the iPhone 8 doesn't have a headphone jack, it does have a solution for one of the iPhone 7's biggest issues.

My iPhone 6S is probably the last iPhone that will I have. The day Apple stop supporting the iPhone 6S, I will have no choice to go to the competitors who are still supporting the headphone jack.

I tried putting a headphone jack into the lightning port. Even a m;ini plug is too big. If the lightning port is an audio out you would have to have an adapter that took mini to lightning.

This sucks I like the Iphone but am going to have to switch now!

Gerald, agreed! That is the last straw for me. So sick and tired of paying a premium for an over priced phone with no memory expansion options AND tying me to their ecosystem via iTunes and the store. Hell no!

Headphones do not fit into any port on my iPhone 8……no wonder they were offered “free”. Promised we could keep our old number…… never got done so we are carrying four phones to stay in contact with family, doctors, accounts, etc. Not happy!!!!
