Leaked label from the iPhone 7 Plus box reveals how Apple is handling the EarPods situation?
One of the first rumors involving the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus was the one that said Apple would be removing the 3.5mm earphone jack on the 2016 iPhone models. As a result, all throughout the summer we saw different 'leaked' versions of the EarPods. We also took a look at various adapters that were rumored to be coming out of the box with the new phones.

Now, we might just have the truth. A label, allegedly from the 256GB Apple iPhone 7 Plus box, reveals what comes with the phone. And it lists EarPods with a Lightning connector. It also includes a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter for those who want to use the accessory on other devices. This matches some of the solutions that we passed along to you this summer.

Of course, there is no guarantee that this wasn't printed up on a PC or Mac by someone who has nothing better to do with his time. In other words, you might want to take this story with a grain of salt. In fact, you might want to purchase a large container of the stuff. With a week left until the new iPhone models are unveiled, you can expect an exponential increase in leaks.

Seems as expected really, headphones that work with the new layout and an adaptor for those who want to use ones with 3.5mm jack... Shame about the lack of charging + headphone use unless the leaks have all managed to miss something. I bought an iPhone SE yesterday to replace my iPhone 6 (nothing about the 7 seems interesting enough not to sell my 6 on while it's still worth a lot (£290!)) - the guy in the shop said the iPhone 7 official cases had arrived and based on the box artwork the 7 looks exactly the same as the 6, from the front at least I presume.

Apple is falling behind to its competitors, people are beginning to realize the iphone is not the only phone, taking the 3.5mm jack is a huge mistake.

I like the smaller size, my battery was having problems for the last couple of months on the 6, the "upgrade" equals out to £140 once I've sold the 6, I get the faster processor, extra RAM, better battery life (regardless of problem with it on the 6) and better camera of the 6S in the SE. It's a decent upgrade in a size I prefer. :) Quite a lot of people have made the change and largely seem happy with it.

I thought lack of a headphone jack would be a big deal as well, but it's not for me. I recently got the Moto Z, and as long as they include an adapter (Moto did) it's no bother. I only use my phone for music when I'm not at my computer, thus I never charge while listening from my phone.
