Ahead of today’s Apple keynote, there is much speculation about the upcoming iPhone 7, although we are expecting an iPhone SE. It’s not a secret that the iPhone 7 will ditch the 3.5mm jack and instead will use the Lightning connector as means for listening to music. Therefore it’s not that big of a surprise to see the below photos leaked online on Chinese Weibo social media.
We could speculate about the authenticity of these photos, but since the September launch of the iPhone 7 is so far, they might as well be fake. It is a known fact that Chinese manufacturers have copied Apple’s earpods and released cheap, counterfeit versions to the market. The above image might be one of those : a manufacturer trying to get ahead of everyone else. At least now we have an image with the rumored feature.
