Apple IS killing off iPhone’s headphone jack – and this is what we’ll have to use instead

We didn’t want to believe, but it’s looking increasingly like Apple really IS killing off the headphone jack for iPhone 7.

The latest evidence?

Er, just a set of actual Apple earbuds which plug in via the Lightning port – hinting that a headphone-less iPhone is on the way.

The picture surfaced on Chinese social network Weibo over the weekend, according to Cult of Mac.

The move would make the firm’s new smartphone – expected to launch in September – up to 1mm thinner, and the new model will include stereo speakers.

Instead, headphones will plug in via the Lightning connector – or connect wirelessly Bluetooth.

If true, it would mean that millions of iPhone users would have to upgrade their headphones, or use an adapter.
