    1. Is Apple including the AirPods in the iPhone 7?

    2. Do they sound as good as maybe the Bose in ear?

    3. Do they give off radiation? Is it safe?

    Airpods will be available in late Oct for a hefty price of $159
    Very unlikely they'll sound as good as Bose
    Probably as safe as any other bluetooth device.

    They are not water resistant at all, Twitter AppleSupport tweeted me back saying they don't recommend getting them wet. That's all I know ;p

    They don't even come with the AirPods?

    That's ridiculous.

    you really thought they would just include an item they can get people to buy and cut profit completely on one item and into the margins of the phone.... pfffft

    I have a question, do the AirPods have the remote functionality (pause/play, volume etc) of Apple's older earphones?

    You probably also thought Apple would be including a Pencil with an iPad Pro purchase?

    - NO. One word. Profit.

    3. Do they give off radiation? Is it safe?
    - For sure they won't explode like the Note 7.

    They're charging $150 USD for them seperately, did you really think they'd give them away with every phone?

    Apple has always shipped headphones with iPhone.

    What about sound quality? Are they like the Bose I have? I have the sound sport ones.

    And they are still shipping them (and even adding an adapter for other headphones as well).

    And they are. Lightning ones.

    And nobody here can tell you how they sound since nobody here could possibly have them yet.

    Yeah but who wants the lightning ones when the wireless ones are out? Would rather get those in the box.

    Okay so I've just been looking through the Apple website and to use the "remote" controls you'll have to use Siri. There's a pro for the wired ones I suppose..

    What I want to know is how secure are they when using?

    They don't look like they would stay in my ear that well when cycling unfortunately :(

    Alright, that doesn't make anything ridiculous. Apple has had better earphones/headphones available than the included ones in the box for quite a while. Nothing exactly new or strange here.

    They come with earbuds like every other year. These ones just are connect by the lightning adapter instead of the 3mm adapter.

    Wireless ones aren't out. They aren't out until the end of October.

    Which doesn't change anything that we are talking about and what has been said.

    Well they seem pretty similar besides the wireless capabilities, besides the wired ones have their own pros:
    -Wire makes them harder to lose
    -Cheaper (To buy or replace)
    -Remote functionality
    -No need to recharge
    -Usable on all 3.5mm devices (Not applicable to Lightning version)

    I'm just saying they should include them with the iPhone since it's the latest and greatest from Apple.

    The AirPod design is expensive to manufacture. Apple couldn't possibly go from including headphones that cost them under a dollar to including expensive wireless headphones in the box.
