A video has been uploaded to YouTube that, according to the publisher, shows what the Lightning-equipped EarPods will look like, and how they’ll function, too. The video shows the headphones connecting into an iPhone 6s’ Lightning port, and, on top of that, even show how the inline remote will work, too.
There is a bit of a back-and-forth when it comes to whether or not Apple is going to include Lightning EarPods in the box of the upcoming flagship devices. In June we heard the first rumor that Apple would actually launch 3.5mm EarPods with the new iPhones, and include an adapter so that those headphones could plug into the Lighting port — since the upcoming phones won’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack. But then, soon after that, we began seeing leaks of what was said to be Lightning EarPods, contradicting that initial rumor.
Most recently, a report including photos and video of what is said to be an official 3.5mm adapter surfaced, showing that, at least in some part of the world, the adapter exists, and appears to look genuine enough. The headphones in this video, though, appear to be genuine, too, but there’s no telling right now if they are or not. These could be knockoffs, just as we’ve seen with other Lightning EarPods in the past.
Do you think Apple is going to launch a dongle with their new iPhones?
