There have been conflicting leaks concerning the iPhone 7, but one constant has been the fact that Apple will drop the headphone port in order to make the phone slimmer. But now that's been thrown into doubt.
That's because a new leak shows the port in place after all.
It comes courtesy of Nowhereelse, a French site known for the accuracy of its leaks. It has published an image purporting to show a Lightning cable assembly for the forthcoming iPhone. But contrary to rumours, the image shows a headphone port in place.
The image came from Chinese social network Weibo, so there's no way to verify its veracity.
The rumour that Apple would drop the headphone port has angered many online. However, Intel has called for the port to be abandoned in favour of USB Type-C. Apple wouldn't even be the first first to drop it – Chinese firm LeEco recently announced three new phones, all lacking headphone ports.
The iPhone 7 is expected to debut in September. Will Apple keep the headphone port? And would you be peeved to find out you have to buy a new pair of headphones to work with your new iPhone? Let us know in the comments.
