Apple to bundle 3.5mm jack-to-Lightning port adapter along with EarPods in iPhone 7 box?

Apple to bundle 3.5mm jack-to-Lightning port adapter along with EarPods in iPhone 7 box?
The latest rumor involving the Apple iPhone 7 once again addresses the possibility that Apple will remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone. The purpose would be to make the phone thinner, and perhaps to make it easier for Apple to waterproof the handset. Removing the 3.5mm opening erases one port where water can enter the device. Last month, China's Tama Electric showed off its 3.5mm earphone jack-to-Lightning port adapters that it hopes to sell to iPhone 7 owners.

A rumor making the rounds today at Computex Taipei 2016 says that Apple plans on including a similar 3.5mm-to-Lightning port adapter in the iPhone 7 box, along with a pair of its EarPods. Apple will allegedly use the extra space created by removing the 3.5mm jack by adding another speaker. Still, the sound system on the iPhone 7 will remain mono and the speaker grilles will be round like the ones found on the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus.

The rumor also deals with the amount of internal storage on both the iPhone 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The buzz around the water cooler is that both models will be available with as much as 256GB of internal memory on board. Just the other day, we showed you pictures of a SanDisk 256GB flash memory chip that is supposedly earmarked for the iPhone 7 Plus.
