    So, having just watched the live stream I've been left disappointed. Got a 6S at the minute, I do a lot of walking so often have my recharge plugged in via lightning cable and have my EarPods plugged in for music.
    If I get a 7, I can't do that. There seems to be no adapter to allow for both?
    Anyone else in the same boat and any suggestions? I've been iPhone since day 1 but now I'm starting to consider other options. :(

    It's probably more common than you think. I, too, often charge and listen. That said, I'll get over it and figure something out.

    Wow. Any reason why you feel that way?

    They will need to come up with a combo adapter (headphone/charge).

    Then it will be actually pretty nice as only one wire out of the thing....less tangle?....maybe?

    WTF.

    There are plenty of people who do that regularly, and plenty more who like the ability to do it occasionally.

    I have always plugged in headphones and charged at the same time. But that said, all it will take is a little big of planning. Charging my phone over night for a full charge to start the day. Throwing it in low power mode while listening via lightning connected headphones. Maybe dabbling with wireless. Using the adapter for current headphones. But regardless, at least for me, this is not the end of the world. I cannot think of any example where listening to music in low power mode will occur where I don't have access to stop and charge after 8-10 hours. Guess I am one of the few not concerned about this at all.

    My suggestion, truthfully, is ask yourself whether you need a new phone. What makes you want the next one (other than it's the next best new thing from Apple)? Are you unhappy with your 6s?

    Aside from the camera, I personally wasn't presented with a whole lot of reason to change from my 6s plus. Part of me now wishes I had picked up Apple care since I've never kept an iPhone two years, but I've also never had failures so... oh well.

    I'll be staying. But Apple still got my money this year with Apple Watch series 2. So it's almost a wash.

    You really only have a few options:

    1. Wireless
    2. Wait to see if someone creates an adapter
    3. Charge at different times
    4. Use another phone

    I wouldn't use the word disappointed, since I already knew what to expect (read: I visit MacRumors every day). There was a couple of things that surprised me, like the stereo speakers and the confirmed water proofing. But to your point: all in all not a substantial upgrade.

    It seems that wireless is basically their "solution" or a workaround for that (for charging and listening at the same time).

    Which is just fine with me. I was pretty impressed with the AirPods.

    In some sense I agree, in another sense I would still really like to see a nice Y-adapter so that that charging can happen and headphones can be used at the same time.

    Same. Matte black and a quarter terabyte storage on my phone. Haha, yes. :)

    This is great news for people still on a two-year plan like myself. For people with a 6S/6S+? Sure if you're on a yearly upgrade program. I think the features are good enough for an upgrade anyways especially with the camera feature. I am disappointed that Apple wants to be wireless but not throwing in the AirPods for free. :) I'm sure this is their way to make money but at least they are including wired and the adapter.

    Glad you're pleased :)

    My recommendation was to the OP, or anyone else in the situation "looking for reasons" to upgrade. If you have to look for reasons, IME, it's not worth the money.

    I was hoping you'd be right about a surprise. Not this year :(

    This is why my wife and I keep our old devices.

    iPhone 5 as a media device with headphone jack to the rescue!

    I liked the 7 event myself. I have the 6s plus. I wasn't sure I was going to upgrade and still am considering but the feature I am most looking forward to is the stereo speakers and the 256 HJ storage. That for me is worth a upgrade. I don't take a lot of pictures and the camera would be nice and while nice it's not what I'm most excited for.

    That doesn't really address the part about being out walking or driving and recharging while also connecting to the audio port.
