Apple to Include Lightning to 3.5mm Adapter With iPhone 7, Not Lightning EarPods?

Apple is reportedly planning to include a Lightning to 3.5 mm adapter with the iPhone 7 rather than releasing a new pair of Lightning EarPods, reports Deutsche Bank.

The prediction comes via research note in which Deutsche Bank analysts reveal what they are expecting from the iPhone 7 based on supply chain checks.

Here's a look at what they are anticipating:
● A “Plus” model with a dual-camera for better zoom and 3GB of RAM
● A standard model with an improved camera and optical image stabilisation
● Better sound, possibly stereo sound
● “Professional class water-proofing
● A home button that uses motors to simulate a click, which would last longer than the current home button
● A new colour, so there’s a version that looks different than current iPhones
● The elimination of the 3.5mm headphone jack, as has been discussed endlessly. Headphones will instead plug in through Apple’s lightning charging port
● Deutsche Bank expects Apple to include a Lightning-to-audio dongle with the iPhone 7, not a pair of Lightning headphones

This isn't the first time we've heard that Apple plans to ship the iPhone 7 with an adapter rather than Lightning headphones. Back in June, Macotakara made the same prediction.

I wouldn't say shitty because we do t k ow if this is the final look or if it will really happen, but knew thing's for sure is we live in a world with wireless Bluetooth headphones. Why can't you just do that!?

If apple does this shit to its upcoming product. YOU ARE GOING TO BE CLOSED FOREVER. Apple is purposely irritating its customers, "Nothing lasts forever" - Avengers - Age of Ultron.

What do you mean we're going to be closed? Nothing will last forever unless there is a way that's going to happen. I don't see how this could irritate customers. If people don't like this, they can just use wireless headphones, plus it's also mentioned apple is making it, just not mentioned here.

I charge while using headphones all the time. Why would they do this...water proofing - too much of a sacrifice.
