Lightning EarPods and 3.5mm adapter coming with iPhone 7, wireless AirPods and Beats will be extra

To further sooth out your sadness, and to ensure the compatibility of the iPhone 7 with your current audio gear, Apple will be throwing an 3.5mm-jack-to-Lightning adapter in the phones' box for free, too.
AirPods, truly wireless earbuds that go into each ear without any connection between them. These provide 5 hours of battery, which is more than most other such products on the market, and a carrying case that can charge them up to five times on the go. In addition, new Beats Bluetooth headphones enter the fray, with models offering up to 40 hours of listening on a charge, sweet.If you don't want to be tangled by wires, Apple has created brand new

It made sense for Apple to include a new set of Earpods and the Lightning adapter in the box as this would help ease the transition to Lightning only. The only problem is listening to music and charging the device at the same time but maybe there will be a daisy chain accessory in the furture. As for the airpods I hope they would come in black as it would look better in darker colors.

"Apple will be throwing an 3.5mm-jack-to-Lightning adapter in the phones' box for free, too." This is a pet peeve of mine, but they're not free. They're in the box and their cost is included in the package. You'd never say that you bought your car and the bumpers came with it for free.

That connector is not worth more than a dollar.

So what if I need to charge my phone and I also want to listen to music on my wired headphones. Like on a plane, train or car? Oh wait if you want that feature, you'll have to pay more... Well done to Apple. Force your consumers to adapt by having them spend more money. They didn't become the richest company for no reason ;)
