As you may have heard the next Iphone is rumored to be without a headphone jack using their lightning port instead. Replacing analog headphone jacks with digital audio paves a path to stricter DRM.

We moved our video systems to HDMI and got HDCP(High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), remember?
"In the video space, you're seeing people come down with required usage of HDCP when transmitting digital content over a digital medium, but you're not seeing that happening for audio," he says.

Digital audio could mean DRM(Digital rights management) audio. aka crackdown on piracy
