When reports broke out that Apple's iPhone 7 would replace the 3.5mm headphone jack with a new all-in-one Lightning connector, the mighty tech giant drew the ire of millions of iPhone owners across the world. Luckily, it looks like those reports are false, and the iPhone 7 will keep the 3.5mm jack.

According to a recently leaked photo of the iPhone 7's innards, the new flagship will sport a 3.5mm jack. The component was compared to that of an iPhone 6S, showing obvious similarities and differences that could indicate it's a new iPhone model. Then again, the source of the leak is unverified--as they so often are--so this could be a fake.
