Instead, Apple is said to rely on the Lightning port to connect headphones with.

How true are these rumors? Admittedly that’s hard to say, but in the meantime it looks like over in China, a local accessory maker has begun to advertise Lightning-to-headphone jack adapters which are aimed at iOS users and presumably those who are planning on buying the iPhone 7 later this year.

It should be noted that as of right now, there are several headphones in the market that do connect to iOS devices via Lightning, so that isn’t exactly new. However by Apple removing the option of a 3.5mm audio jack, we might be seeing an influx of Lightning headphones in the future. No word on the prices of the accessory yet.

In the meantime, there have been several rumors regarding the iPhone 7, like how Apple could either bundle an adapter with the iPhone or sell it separately. There are also some claims that there might be Apple Bluetooth headphones that could be sold separately and charged via Lightning similar to the Apple Pencil, but either way we’ll have to wait until the later part of the year for the details.
