iPhone 7 Plus leaked in video, another one shows Lightning EarPods

By Jules Wang August 5, 2016, 3:58 pm

Two Apple leaks in two days. One of them affirms one major change in how this year’s iPhones will be delivering cabled audio to your lugs, the other is something completely new.

We’ll start there as Lewis Hilsenteger — because Unbox Therapy isn’t the name on his birth certificate — detailed what could be the iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro) in an in-depth video tour.

Hilsenteger said that he was shipped this non-functoning unit from Chinese audio hardware startup BeSound, one of the several sources that showed off a supposed manufacturer’s mimic of the regular iPhone 7.

On this kind-of Space Blue unit, we find a camera port fit for two of them — we haven’t picked up any evidence on how the cameras will interact — and some pins that look to be of the Smart Connector type as we’ve seen on both iPad Pro models.


No confirmations, of course, but healthy affirmations of what we’ve been told to expect on both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models of this year’s iPhone. Yes, that includes the omission of the headphone jack.

Speaking of which, check out this video from the UK-based MobileFun that features some official-looking EarPods with a Lightning connector.

The Pods were tested on an iPhone running a beta version of iOS 10. A Vietnamese outlet got hold of a Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter and found that Lightning-based audio accessories were not recognized on an iOS 9 device.

All in all, a great week for Apple leaks. Just don’t believe any of them until you see the thing for yourself.
