Now, these images above could easily have been faked — 9to5Mac points to a similar image from a few months ago that was apparently photoshopped — so take them with a huge grain of salt for now. As everyone gets excited for the upcoming iPhone 7’s release this fall, however, it’s looking more and more likely the 3.5mm headphone jack is being ditched by Apple.
Previously, a leak suggested Apple might include the standard EarPod headphones with the iPhone 7 and offer an adapter. If the images above are legit, however, Apple will instead include a pair of headphones with a Lightning connector — something many will likely see much more of over the coming months.
The iPhone 7 is expected to debut this September so this report is not that far away from an actual announcement. Other possible changes may include a revamped home button, different colors, and the move to 32GB as standard.
