Apple execs go on PR offensive to defend removal of “dinosaur” headphone jack from iPhone 7

Apple’s marketing honcho Phil Schiller said during yesterday’s iPhone 7 keynote that the company has had the courage and vision to remove the ubiquitous 3.55 mm audio headphone jack from the handset in a forward-thinking move that has allowed its engineers to cram more hardware features inside the handset than ever before.

Schiller, Greg Joswiak and hardware chief Dan Riccio took to BuzzFeed News to list some of the new iPhone 7 features made possible by the abolished jack.

Full video of Apple VP Greg Joswiak’s Code Mobile interview now available

In October, Apple’s VP of iPhone marketing Greg Joswiak participated in an on-stage interview at Recode’s inaugural Code/Mobile conference. During the 30-minute discussion, Joswiak talked about several topics including the iOS 8.0.1 debacle, Apple Pay and more.

Since Joswiak isn’t on Apple’s senior executive team, we don’t get to see him talk very often, but he offers up some interesting information in this interview. We already covered some of the major highlights here, but now you can watch the whole thing on the video below.

Apple’s Greg Joswiak apologizes for iOS 8.0.1 bug, blames it on distribution

Continuing with their high profile interviews, Recode’s Ina Fried and Walt Mossberg brought Apple’s VP of iPhone marketing Greg Joswiak up on stage today at their Code/Mobile event. The trio discussed a number of topics, including Apple Pay, Apple Watch and Apple’s recent software woes.

Given the nature of the questions, and Apple’s devotion to PR control, a lot of Joswiak’s answers sound very similar to things we’ve heard Tim Cook say recently. However, Fried and Mossberg do manage to pry some original, interesting tidbits from the executive during the course of their talk.
