A leaked video claims to show the upcoming Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, along with the new Apple Earpods. We have seen many leaked?photos and renders of the devices in the past. However, this one is quite unique because it shows all three gadgets in action, thereby confirming many speculated configurations.
A Chinese tipster under the YouTube handle @KK has uploaded the video showing the alleged trio — the Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the brand new Apple EarPods. The video looks like it was recorded in a food court, perhaps inside a shopping mall.
Thanks to the?past rumors, we are already aware of the fact that the iPhone 7 series will not come with the widely-used 3.5mm headphone jack. Hearing this rumor, the reactions from various social media platforms have been mixed so far. Some feel, this is a bold move by Apple.
However, there are others that cannot see why Apple should remove this harmless feature in the first place. The Bitbag, on the other hand, feels Apple might have a strong business case to remove such a popular feature and we will come to know about it as we near close to the iPhone 7 release date in September.
Whatever be the case, instead of the 3.5mm headphone jack, Apple has apparently added a Lightning plug at the end of the Earpods. This plug can be connected to the port located at the bottom of the device.
Past rumors, on the other hand, suggested that Bluetooth Earpods will be offered by Apple to compensate the lack of headphone jack. Meanwhile,?Phone Arena, citing rumors, noted that Apple could add a ?3.5mm-to-Lightning adapter? in the device bundle.
However, looking at the latest iPhone 7 video, it is crystal clear that Apple changed the accessory to work with the handset?s design. The same video clip also shows how the volume can be controlled via the Earpods remotely.
To top it off, the video confirms the existence of a dual-camera setup in the bigger sibling iPhone 7 Plus, which is believed to be the competitor of the power-packed?Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
On a related note, a couple of days back, a report suggested that Apple will be?replacing the physical home button on the handset with a capacitive one. But the latest video clip shows nothing of that sort in the iPhone.
Perhaps, it was just a wild rumor. But then, the reason quoted by the source was that — by using the capacitive home button, users can feel the button getting pressed due to the effect of electromagnetism. Even though it sounds like a legitimate feature, it apparently is not going to be part of the iPhone 7 series.
