Siemens, Sony-Ericsson did this thing 12 year ago, same pe port for charger & headphone. This is nothing new...
Seerub Senpai, 13 Jul 2016or cheaper alternative is...buy an android~That to won't be an option for long as Android too have gone this way with companies like Motorola and Letv (or LeEco maybe) have already ditched the 3.5 mm jack in their latest flagships :(
Isn't USB C the future of connectivity, charging etc.
What the heck is a lighting connector?
This year no earphones in iPhone 7 box, if you want them with minimum 100$ you can have it
Sorry Apple isheep, many people use quality and high end IEM's, also while in the car people like to charge their phone while using their AUX to listen to music, and Bluetooth sound quality is still way behind digital to analog.
Apple why not just include wireless earphones and get rid of this ugly lighting earphones
Larry638, 13 Jul 2016I'm all for Apple's new adoption for the future, stop dwelling in the past for obsloete analog... moreAll audio is analogue. Bogus digital audio that no human can even physically hear. It waste battery too and to put that tech with iphone notoriously small battery. Good luck trying to get through even half a day listening to music. This is no better than bluetooth earphone.
this looks just UGLY lol. Apple is doing this type innovation as always.
Those are fake. Not saying the 7 will have the 3.5mm jack but those particular earpods aren't Apple made.

Good Luck iphone users.Its like apple going backward in time when company sell proprietary accessories.
