We’ve been seeing a lot of rumours that Apple will be ditching the traditional 3.5mm audio jack on its upcoming iPhone 7. There are plenty of picture leaks claiming to be the latest Apple EarPod with a Lightning connector, and now, here’s a video of it in action.
The latest leak is a video that shows off a functioning Lightning EarPod. When connected to the Lightning port of an iPhone running on iOS 9, the man demonstrates that it can indeed play music, and the play/pause and volume up/down buttons do indeed work. Sadly though, the microphone was not tested.
Of course, until Apple officially announces the iPhone 7, there’s no way to tell if this “iPhone 7 EarPods” is indeed a real thing, or just clone earphone that looks like the Apple EarPod. The video shows no clues suggesting that the accessory is a legitimate Apple product.
Apple is expected to announce its next generation iPhone some time in September 2016. According to rumours, the launch will be happening on “week of September 12”, and pre-orders (for the first wave launch at least) will start on 9 September 2016.
