Why Apple may be leaving Windows plug-ins behind
If you have ever wanted to change your sound by adding new plug-in or tweaking your sound quality by plugging in headphones or headphones’ own plug-outs, now is your chance.
Apple is reportedly leaving plug-and-play functionality behind with the next-generation Mac lineup.
It’s unclear what Apple’s plans are for plug-on and plug-off functionality in future Macs.
However, Macs with built-in speakers and audio chips that can be connected via USB can use plug-ons and plug devices, and they may be able to use audio chips with external speakers, but they’ll still have to plug in a cable.
In addition, Apple may still have some support for plugging a Bluetooth headset in and out of a Mac, though it’s unclear if that feature will be in the Mac lineup at all.
