Apple Mulls True Wireless Headphone for iPhone 7

January 14, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The rumors we heard some time ago are inching closer to a confirmation. Apple iPhone 7 won’t feature a 3.5mm headset jack. Instead, Apple has now decided to bring wireless headphones that would stay true to its name unlike the currently available wireless headphones.

With the cache supply from Beats, a company Apple acquired two years back, the Cupertino-based company is now planning to introduce a pair of ear buds that would be totally hacked off from any wires.

Each of the left and right pieces won’t be having anything to tangle in between, and connection is to be established to the parent phone via Bluetooth. Apple is also reported to have been in talks with their long-term audio chipset partner Cirrus Logic to have the necessary tweaks carried out before the iPhone 7 debuts.


This would come in addition to the audio support with Lightning Connectors, which is where Apple sees the flourishing of third party works.

A report on Verge highlights that there has been many big names associated with Lightning headsets including the likes of Master & Dynamic, Bang & Olufsen, and Bowers & Wilkins.

But all these would arise in midst of wide public agitation, as users have already turned their heads against the shunning of 3.5mm cables in Apple’s next iPhone edition. Apple hasn’t yet confirmed the absence officially.

However, there appears to be some serious lovers of the conventional jack as a petition in SumofUs is already inching closer to its goal of 250,000 petition signings.

We are curious whether Apple would be making out to those cries even if their petition gets the forward push, as their desire to trim the smartphone thickness seems to be placed on an upper tier.

Apart from the headphone segment, there have also been other rumors related with iPhone 7, hinting at a waterproof body for iPhone 7.

It also appears that iPhone 7 would introduce the wireless charging feature for the first time in a mobile device from Apple. The feature was first introduced with Apple Watch, for which they also later rolled out an official charging dock.
