Alleged iPhone 7 EarPods with Lightning Connector Leaks

Last month, a batch of photographs out of China claiming to depict a Lightning-based version of Apple’s standard EarPods headphones left us scratching our head due to the product’s sketchy appearance. But now, French blog points us to another set of leaked images, originally posted on the Chinese social network Weibo, that ostensibly show off a fully assembled EarPods headphones with a Lightning connector.

The photos show EarPods that look similar to the existing EarPods that Apple bundles with the iPhones, except obviously it comes with a Lightning connector at one end.

Apple is widely expected to ditch the 3.5mm analog audio jack on the next iPhone in favor of wireless headphones via Bluetooth and all-digital wired headphones based on its proprietary Lightning connector.

It still remains unclear how Apple expects iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users to charge their handset with the Lightning connector plugged in. This is a fairly common phenomenon that people do in their everyday life, especially while travelling.
