New photos show Apple EarPods with Lightning connector40
We have seen this rumor rejected, come back to life, rejected again, and repeated once more. Today, photographs have been discovered on China's Weibo mini-blogging site showing Apple's EarBuds with a Lightning connector instead of the 3.5mm jack. The images dovetail with a recent report that we passed along to you earlier this month, claiming that Apple will bundle a pair of these EarPods with the Apple iPhone 7. We would also expect to see them packed in the box with the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
We still do not have any direct confirmation from Apple that the 3.5mm earphone jack will be removed on the Apple iPhone 7. In fact, images of some components allegedly earmarked for the phone, have shown the 3.5mm earphone port still alive and well. This is one rumor that might not be put to bed one way or the other until the September unveiling of the phone.
Thanks for the tip!
