Is there some adapter out there to use the new EarPods with the lightning cable on a MacBook Pro?
With the way things are progressing, I'd be looking for a set of good BT headphones. Lightning headphones are just a temporary solution. Apple is trying to push everyone to wireless.
You mean besides the one that comes in the box?
The adapter that comes in the box with the new iPhone will allow you to plug in 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning port on your iPhone 7. It doesn't work the other way around.
Yes it comes with the iPhone, it's a lightning to headphone adapter.
That's a lightening adapter to a headphone jack, and the current MBPs do not have a lightening port, so that dongle will not work.
But they do have a headphone jack port surely that means they can use the EarPods with the MacBook Pro??
No. because the Earpods that ship with the iPhone 7 are lightening only, not 3.5mm
Ah I see, the dongle on does 3.5 jack to lightening, not lightning to 3.5 jack.
Nope as noted, they're not compatible.
- Opposite. The adaptor is Lightning (male) to 3.5 mm (female). Link.
You said it better then I did
The adapter is male to go inside the iPhone's lightening port, not the other way around
