“Cirrus Logic releases development kit for Lightning headphones.
With Apple rumored to be doing away with the headphone jack on its new iPhone, Cirrus Logic is offering a development kit to aid headphone makers looking to simplify the switch to Lightning connectors. The company’s MFi Headset Development Kit includes reference designs for creating Lightning port connected headphones and a development board to be used in programming, debugging and testing audio performance. The design is compatible with earbuds.
I can see a world of iPhone only headphones all working via the lightning connector or more than likely improved Bluetooth headphones . Once Apple removes the headphone jack everyone else will too. If you can’t sell more phones just wait, manufacturers will be queuing up to sell you compatible headphones!
