I just bought a new MacBook Pro 2016 (without touchbar) and noticed that the headphone jack doesn't go all the way in and sticks out a couple of millimetres: enter image description here

Despite that it seems to be working fine. However, I'm still worried that something might be broken inside and it will come up later.

Is it supposed to be that way on the new models?

  • Nope, seems like a bad cable. Try pushing harder? Try a different cable? Don't worry about it?

  • I think it should be like that, because on my 2016 MBP 15" it is also like that.

  • The question is...does your headphone work properly? If it does, then then jack is working. It may not fit properly but it's working.

  • Check if there is something stuck in the headphone jack!!! If there is and you keep pushing, you'll just make it worse. Jun 14, 2017 at 15:50
