I just don't like this OEM headphone adaptor. 

 

This should have been an global standard rather than an apple one. 

 

And, can I listen to my music via earphones and change the iphone simultaneously?

The wireless airpods don't appear very secure. At least with the wired pods if one falls out it doesn't fall very far.

No, but you can spend a low $269 and get the airpods which only take 15mins to get three hours of charge! Note the sarcasm.

For me the earpods have only ever fallen out when I got the cable caught.

 

But every ear is different.

Over the years, rumours were rumours, but its very clear that they are leaks, this year it was near exactly right. Same as last year.

 

 

 

 

Too true. Except the jet black, that wasn't leaked, and I'd say intentionally.

 

That and the front camera upgrade.

I wonder if the power rating allows for a third party to make a double adapter?

$1829 for the top 7 plus is a big chunk of cash for a phone. Lots of good laptops and tablets less than that.

Will be upgrading my 6Plus to a 128GB Black 7 Plus, love the colour. I like the jet black but that thing will be a fingerprint magnet and possibly more slippery. I don't use any wired headphones (Powerbeats2 for running and Sennheiser Momentum 2 wireless for general listening) so I'm not to fussed about the headphone jack.

 

I'll also update my watch to the new watch series 2 for the added GPS so I don't need to take my phone running. 

 

Looking forward to the pre-order :-)

Or a Note7 with a 64GB SD card maybe?

 

 

 

 

True. I hear Note7's are the bomb.

I wonder if there will be a 'find my earbuds' function. They look very easy to lose.

Seems useful to be able to just use one, then swap them, I do a lot of phone calls for work and this would be good. Think the fit might be tricky. Can imagine third party silicon sleeves to give them more "grip" on the ear.
