Specifically I was referring to Apple and the lightning port licenses they have. Removing a headphone jack on an android is just nonsensical and pointless, it saves so little volume, complexity and BOM, that it's a joke. I doubt it affects their profits by anything close enough to provide any ROI after lost sales are accounted for.
