"We are trying to make great products for people, and so we have at least the courage of our convictions to say we do not think this is part of what makes a great product, we are going to leave it out." Jobs stated in an interview with Recode founders in 2010. And "we're going to focus our energy instead on these technologies, which we think are in their ascendancy, and we believe in going to be the right technologies for customers."

"You know what? They're paying us to make those choices" -Jobs stated in the interview. "That's what a lot of customers pay us to do; it's to try to make the best products we can. And if we succeed, they'll buy them. And if we don't, they won't. And it'll all work itself out.". It simply means, if iPhone 7 fails to impress the customers Apple will add 3.5mm jack back in next iPhone model. It's a simple concept.
