When you want to listen to audio from your iPhone, iPad or iPod, all you have to do is plug your headphones into the headphone jack, right? But that mini-plug has its limitations when it comes to offering ultra-high-def audio. That’s usually not a problem because most people are perfectly happy listening to MP3s. But what if you want to enjoy high-end lossless 48 kHz digital audio? Then you need something more.
Fortunately, all newer iOS devices have Lightning ports that can handle tons of data. What if there was a special set of headlines that could access that bandwidth?
There may be soon. Apple quietly introduced a new MFi (Made for iOS) spec that will allow manufacturers to connect headphones via the Lightning port.
Any bets on when Beats will issue theirs?
