    So I think the 3.5mm headphone jack on my iPhone is shrinking. I know that's sounds ridiculous but let me explain.
    1 I thought it might have been just my tape adapter plug was expanding. It had been getting harder and harder to fit into my iPhone for a while now.
    2. Today my headphones wouldn't exactly fit all the way down into the jack. They would trigger the music off and then kinda slip out a tiny bit and it would stop.
    3. So I tried a pair of headphones in the computer lab and a friends Beats by Dre. None of them fit.

    Has anyone heard of this happening?
