With the recent launch of the latest device of the iPhone series, Apple completely innovated the way in which people are listening to music and the way in which they use headphones. For those of you who live under a rock and haven’t heard yet, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t include a headphone jack anymore. Instead, they come together with some earbuds called airpods.
However, before you freak out, Apple also thought a back-up solution and it also includes in the package an adapter in case you still want to use the old headphones. Even so, there are lots of people who are still confused about this change in technology and are willing to know more, so there you go.
First of all, indeed there is no headphone jack on the new model. Secondly, you will receive instead of headphones a couple of earbuds (white, of course), which are called EarPods. However, you will also receive a cable that connects them to the phone and you can plug it into the charging port. As previously mentioned, you will get another cable, which is an adapter that lets the old type of headphones plug into the charging port.
Bluetooth headphones will also be compatible with the new iPhone 7 just like they always did. The EarPods will be available for sale starting with October for the price of $159. The EarPods have a battery that lasts for 5 hours, but you can charge them from a case that offers 24 hours of battery. They are based on sensors that turn them on only when you have them in your ears.
Perhaps the best thing is that they work wirelessly, so you don’t need to plug anything anywhere, unless you want to use the old headphones. To pair them up, you will just need to flip open the cover and that’s it.
