iPhone 7 Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter leaked – and it actually looks OK

It’s now pretty much a given that Apple is dispensing with the 3.5mm headphone jack for the iPhone 7. All that’s left to determine is how the company will handle the transition.

A new report from the Vietnamese site tinhte.vn appears to have shed a little light on how users will be able to plug in their existing wired headphones.

The site appears to have obtained a 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapter that actually looks OK.

The minimalist dongle appears to have around an inch or so of cable between the two connectors, which could easily stay connected to the headphones at all times without being that noticeable.

According to the report, the accessory is currently being manufactured by Foxconn in China and will be bundled in with the iPhone 7.

Interestingly, the accessory doesn’t work on an iOS 9 phone, but works perfectly with an iOS 10 handset (via SlashGear).

Whether it’s the real deal or not remain to be seen, but this doesn’t seem like it’d be the worst thing in the world.

Check it out in the video below.
