Apple announced new EarPods that will now connect using the proprietary Lightning connector and the iPhone 7 will also include a Lightning Connector to the 3.55 adapter to ease your woes.
Wireless AirPods were also announced which will be powered by Apple’s W1 Chip. The AirPods also have IR sensors and motion accelerometers that will respond to touch. This will enable users to interact with Siri. The AirPods will have 5 hours of playback on a single charge. Setting up the AirPods will be very simple as a connection prompt on the iPhone 7 and 7 plus will simplify things for the user. The question here is, will it make things better or worse for the consumer?
