    The removal of the headphone jack has had a profound effect on the ability of people who are blind and who have hearing impairments to use the iPhone. Many hearing aids are unusable with the current lightning port and Apple's headphones which means some people who are blind cannot properly hear VoiceOver when it is speaking.
