We’ve been hearing for some time rumors about Apple replacing the standard headphone jack with a lightning port for the upcoming iPhone 7. This has upset many devoted iPhone users who don’t want to give up their favorite headphones or have to purchase an adaptor to use their standard headphones in a lightning port. Reportedly, with every iPhone 7 purchase, Apple will be sending a dongle so that you don’t need to go to the extra expense to connect your iPhone to your favorite pair of headphones.
