Apple's Lightning-to-3.5mm Adapter For The IPhone 7 Supposedly Surfaces In Vietnam

Most rumors talking about the iPhone 7 have mentioned that this year Apple is ditching the 3.5 mm headset jack for good. So at this point, after hearing this information from dozens of different sources, we're pretty much convinced it will happen. But, you may wonder, what will Apple do to haged its fans' anger in check?

Well, apparently it all comes down to shipping a Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter in the box. When you buy one of the recent iPhones, you also acquire the adapter. So if you have a pair of headphones that connect through that 3.5mm jack, you'll be able to continue using them. Such adapter cables have been seen before (at the discontinue of May at Computex), but what you can see in the Vietnamese video below is purportedly the original thing - aka the Apple adapter itself.

Apple supplier Foxconn reportedly has a factory in Vietnam that makes cables and adapters, and as such it's already started working on the Lightning-to-3.5mm contraption for the next iPhones. Obviously the cable shown here could be fake, but it does see like something Apple would design. It is after all simple and white.

Interestingly, if you stick it into an iDevice running iOS 10 betas, it works without a worry. On the other hand, if you try to utilize it with an iPhone or iPad running iOS 9, you'll acquire an error message saying "This accessory is not supported by this device".

Thanks for the tip, Anh hiew!
