According to MacOtakara, Apple may remove the connector 3.5 mm jack on the next-generation, iPhone 7 in favor of a connector Lightning all-in-one. The Cupertino company could therefore present to the public new EarPods compatible with the new output of future iOS devices. And as the quality of the music that would pass through the Lightning connector on an iPhone would be digital rather than analog (as it passes through a connection of 3.5 mm), the EarPods come with Digital convert analog (DAC) manufactured into new handsets.

Although this is just a rumor, a move of this kind would only obvious by the multinational Cupertino company, since the last Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), expressed interest in headphones Lightning based technology. Some headsets of this kind already exist, such as those launched by JBL Reflect Aware launched by Harman Kardon and Phillips Fidelio.

Stating that it is only a rumor and not of a certain record, Apple may get to make that decision to decrease as much as possible the thickness of the next iPhone, earning about 1mm. New connector means also new EarPods, that may be characterized by a connector Lightning and a digital-analog converter (DAC).

The next-gen,  iPhone 7 will probably will goodbye to the standard 3.5 mm stereo jack, but Apple could simultaneously bring to market a new accessory, an adapter for those who use headphones of previous generations of the Apple smartphone.

There are some few benefits of using an audio connection Lightning in exchange for traditional analogue connection that already have been using for decades. As the rumor suggests, the inclusion of this technology would allow much thinner designs or thin phones.

Also, as the port or Lightning connector is mainly used for charging, headphones could also stock freight iPhone to charge things like noise cancellation features that generally require batteries.
