“As has been widely reported, it is all but confirmed that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.This means buyers of the new iPhone will have to search for alternative types of headphones, whether that be via wireless Bluetooth or Apple’s Lightning cable.”

“Right now, Apple bundles EarPods with every iPhone,” Mayo reports. “It obviously makes no sense for Apple to continue bundling 3.5mm headphones with the headphone-jack-less iPhone 7.”

Mayo writes, “What’s apparently shown in these photos (via Weibo) is a new version of Apple’s EarPods that can connect to an iPhone via the 8-pin Lightning port.”
