Possible EarPod Lightning Headphones for iPhone 7

Posted by Kirhat | Monday, July 04, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Many expected that Apple will try to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of its Lightning port later this year, a move that would reportedly allow the company to make the iPhone 7 thinner. While tech blogs have already seen leaked parts corroborating these reports, it was just recently that anybody has confirmed a first look at the EarPod headphones with Lightning connector Apple might include with the upcoming handset.

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.
