iPhone 7 will come with headphone adaptor, says report

New analyst research suggests you can use old headphones.

Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 7 will come with a special headphone adaptor, allowing users to plug existing earbuds and cans into the updated smartphone.

Analysts at Deutsche Bank believe that Apple will bundle a dongle with its new device, rather than offer a pair of its EarPods with a Lightning connector.

That flies in the face of recent leaks, which showed off Apple’s traditional white headphones with an attachment that fits into the charging port.

It now appears certain that Apple will do away with the standard 3.5mm headphone port and instead force users to attach headphones via the iPhone 7’s Lightning slot.

The change is being made to allow for a second speaker and could make the iPhone 7 slightly slimmer than its predecessors, while offering space for a larger battery.

Apple is set to launch its new iPhone lineup in the week starting September 12th. Upgrades are likely to be minimal, as it looks to 2017 an a major overhaul of its bestselling product to celebrate its tenth anniversary.
