    The next iPhone may be too skinny for the traditional headphone jack.

    The potential change is something that has many wondering how the absence of the 3.5 mm headphone jack could impact some of the ways people use their iPhones — and what it will do to the multi-billion dollar market for headphones.

    Apple hasn't commented on any of the rumors, but it's believed the lack of a traditional headphone jack would require Bluetooth headphones or an adapter to plug in to the phone's lightning port.

    Steve Wozniak, who left Apple in 1985, told the Australian Financial Review he believes the potential change, which Apple has not confirmed, would "tick off a lot of people."

    Three Amur tiger cubs have been born at a Crimean safari park. The trio and their mother are doing well, according to park workers. The cubs were born on June 25 at Taigan Park in Belogorsk, which is home to around 50 tigers and lions.

    Amur tigers are an endangered subspecies - once found across Russia's Far East but driven to the brink of extinction by the 1940s.
