After Note 10 dumps headphone jack Samsung ads mocking iPhone dongles disappear

first_imgWelcome to dongle life, Samsung users.   Sarah Tew/CNET Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 10 line is ditching its headphone jack. After years of being one of the last true holdouts, it seems that not even the mighty Samsung could continue to prolong the inevitable death of the beloved port. Of course, with this switch, there is a bit of irony. As rumors continued to pick up steam that Apple was set to remove the headphone jack on 2016’s iPhone 7, Samsung mocked the decision when touting the audio jack’s presence during its (now ill-fated) Galaxy Note 7 launch event.  For the Note 8, Samsung released an ad showing mocking how iPhone users needed to use a dongle to charge and listen to wired headphones at the same time.  CNET may get a commission from retail offers.
