iPhone 7 could have wireless earphones in the box

Apple's new iPhone might include wireless earphones in the box, with upcoming 'AirPods' spotted on retail packaging

Apple's new iPhone announcement is right around the corner, but ahead of the big unveiling, a new rumor has surface that could see the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus including wireless, Lightning-based 'AirPods' in the box.

AirPods is a product Apple hasn't talked about before, and while this is a very hot rumor, they are the purported wireless earphones that Apple will include with the new iPhone. A large reason behind this would be because the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will reportedly not include a 3.5mm headphone jack, and will instead have a single Lightning connector that will disrupt the market, because of the near infinite market of 3.5mm headphones, speakers and other audio-based products.

 

If we do see the new iPhone feature wireless earphones in the box, Apple could alleviate many of the issues people have with the new iPhone not including a 3.5mm jack. Apple will reportedly include a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter in the box, so you can still connect your 3.5mm-based speakers or headphones - which would be another great addition.

 

The only issue with Lightning only is that you can't use your AirPods and charge your iPhone at the same time, and that's a big problem.
