We reported in January that the iPhone 7 will ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and rely on its Lightning port for audio output to headphones. This set off quite a bit of angst among Mac faithful, fearing they’d need to buy new headphones or at least a new Lightning adapter in order to plug in.
Well, a new report today says Apple may be planning to ease the future-shock by including a familiar pair of 3.5mm EarPods, and an adapter needed to plug them into the Lightning port at the bottom of the phone.
I hope this isn’t true. If Apple wants to switch to the improved audio of the Lightning port, they should own it, and make no apologies.
