Should Apple bundle wireless earphones in the iPhone 7 box?
Ever since we first heard that Apple is planning an industry disruption by omitting the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7, we couldn't help but wonder how will music be listened to from now on. We say "disruption," as there are already phones like the Moto Z that ship without the audio jack, but they won't sell near as much as the next iPhone, if history is any indication. 

Granted, Apple will most certainly include new EarPods with a Lightning connector at the end, instead of the 3.5mm jack, but we don't see how you'd be able to, say, charge your phone with a Lightning cable, and listen to music from it at the same time. That sounds a bit restrictive, and the only reasonable solution we could think of are Bluetooth wireless earphones that have now fallen in price immensely compared to just a year or so ago. 

This is why we wanted to ask you if you think that Apple should include wireless earphones of its own making in the iPhone 7 box, thus smoothing the transition to a phone without a 3.5mm audio jack for many. What do you think?
