It has been rumored that the 3.55mm headphone jack from the iPhone, a tradition that has been passing along from the older versions, is likely to be removed from the new version. A totally wireless iPhone would mean not only exorbitant price of the iPhone, but also the headphones would be expensive, if needed to be repaired.
CNBC, a renowned business news channel conducted a survey asking people whether they would be pleased with the major change the new iPhone is expected to have. Interestingly, most of the people unhappy with Apple not incorporating the headphone jack in the upcoming iPhone.
Since this is still a rumor and it might not be true, we all know how Apple loves to astonish the fans at the last moment. However, this rumor is based upon the fact that a Apple wanting a slimmer iPhone, slimmer than ever, would not want a thick 3.5 mm jack since it takes up a lot of space.

Since then, Apple has applied different strategic marketing tactics on their iTunes business unit working on the pricing strategies and laying out new policies to entice more people to buy the applications.
Apple can not condone further decrease in their iPhone sales after the iPhone 7 is released.
