    I sold my iPhone 7 to a gun/pawn shop. They didn't want any of the accessories.

    can I plug in the iPhone 7 Lightning earbuds into iPhone SE? Is there any danger in doing so? want to verify this before I actually plug it in.

    Thanks! :)

    Are you talking about the actual earbuds or the earbuds with the adapter?

    Not that it really matters. They will work all the same

    Here's what Apple says on the EarPods with Lightning Connector store product page:

    System Requirements: "Works with all devices that have a Lightning connector and support iOS 10 or later, including iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone."

    I assume Apple is the definitive authority on product support.

    They should work. I've used my lightning earpods with my iPad Air 2 and they work just fine.

    With Apple, if you can plug it in, it will work. Just as long as they are all Apple products. If not there is be hell to pay!

    I know what you're saying, but the iPod nano 7 has lightning but the lightning earpods won't work.

    I stand corrected. I understand them not working when plugged into the Apple TV box but I have a friend who I am pretty sure she told me her iPod Touch worked with her lightning ear buds. I have emailed her to confirm.

    Lightning EarPods works on any devices running iOS 10.

    I've tried on an iOS 8 device and the device just doesn't care if they are plugged, it will output sound from the speaker.

    I've also tried on an iOS 6 device and it does the same thing except that it actually give you a prompt to warn you that this accessory is not supported.
