If this original accessory is indeed manufactured in Vietnam, good luck to those who'll (need to) use/depend on it daily...
If you complain about made in China products, wait till the made in Vietnam products start to be a norm... The manufacturing defect(s) is/are real...
Why would anyone generally bother with extra bits to carry around now days. No no no
We can buy in verizon as motorola z accessories. No need go to viet lol
The next audio standard is USB Type-C audio.
Apple will always make such proprietary, non-universal (what will in all probability also be overpriced) stupidity to milk their crazed fanboys.
Soon third parties will sell this adapter for 1/4th the price Apple will charge.
Such a ridiculous company
How many times have you had you're phone on charge while headphones plugged in because you're on a call or listening to music?
Apple you may have to back track with iPhone 7s / 8
XperiaJunkie, 28 Jul 2016Apple give something away for free!! Yeah right, it'll be priced the same as the old lightning... moreWith later generation phones, after it has become the 'norm' most likely.
For the first release of a phone without a headphone adapter, it is kind of essential.
It will be in the box.
HeartGold69, 28 Jul 2016Say what you want to say, as every year, iPhone will crush the competition, and poor android u... more"Poor' android users indicates they are suffering on their chosen platform... or, you are making the claim that android users are broke...
It is true that a lot of android user hate leveraged at iphones is due to the 'high' iphone prices.. but just remember that whilst these are the many, there are significant sales of Android flagships as well.. so clearly, not all android users are broke, and some actually enjoy spending money on a high end product not made by apple.
I just see a lot of hate coming your way for that comment, which given the intention, might be to generate a flame war.
( I cannot believe GSM deleted my nice posts(even short ones) yet has forums filled with this type of stuff)
derunningman, 29 Jul 2016With 3.5 mm jack available, people still can buy high quality usb-c headphone. Ur argument is ... morei honestly don't get what you mean
first things first.....
we still don't know where the headphone DAC is located for iPhone7
if it's still inside the phone, then the lightning is most likely sending an analog signal (which is a new thing because lightning ports back from iP5 till now couldn't send analog signals like the old huge port did), so there will be no huge changes in sound quality considering they're still using the same DAC as iP6s/Plus and the same earphone specs.
if it's located INSIDE the Lightning-3.5mm adapter like that, then no matter how good your earphones are, it will still sound like crap because you can't jam in good audio components inside such a small space like a small adapter cable
USB-C headphones? are you talking about LeEco's bundled earphones? :P
ethereal, 29 Jul 2016So this all boils down to the fact that I shall be able to use lightening headphones with iOS ... moreBy the way, it charges and plays while in car at the same time when connected in dock mode.
Farhan aka Wolverine, 28 Jul 2016Highly probable that this one is fakeA fake that works with a beta OS designed for the new devices that won't have headphone jacks... ?
Given it has a chip in it, clearly, for the OS to reject it in OS9,..
That kinda confirms it is genuine.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2016This phone is looking crappier by every leak. those leaks are for BLACK PROPAGANDA which is against APPLE .
let's just wait for the exact date when they will officially reveal the true iPhone .
So this all boils down to the fact that I shall be able to use lightening headphones with iOS 10 on my 6s. Something I wanted to know from a while now.
But now, my question is why does it not support it currently with iOS 9.3? Since the lightening port already outputs digital audio which plays fine in my car in dock mode. Wheres the catch?
Jarret, 29 Jul 2016iPhone's made in Vietnam... Hahahawhat on earth .???
how old are you .?
