The bug reportedly shows up after you've left the EarPods plugged into the iPhone 7 for a few minutes. Audio continues to function but the controls stop working, preventing you from adjusting volume, activating Siri, or answering calls.
You can temporarily bring back functionality by unplugging the EarPods and plugging them back in.
An Apple spokesperson told Business Insider the problem will be fixed in a future software update.
