I don't understand this case, it doesnt have a bottom chin, but there's not nearly enough room for the headphone jack placed on the case as shown in the video. I thought this would be behind the phone, but this is right up near the edge of the front. Have you tried plugging the Lightning EarPods into anything without a Lightning port? Since there's no way to do that, I'd assume you only use your headphones with the iPhone and nothing else, ever -- because that would be a problem. The square card reader works with the included adapter. Obviously to the extent they did not license it, they are now with the forthcoming Belkin splitter/adapter. Although te decision may have been the manufacturers as my understanding is that each Lightning connector was an additional cost. Going micro-USB in most cases would have been cheaper and used a fairly common standard. --- Post Merged, Sep 29, 2016 --- I don't disagree. With the exception of the 7 Plus for the camera, I don't really see any compelling reason to buy more than the 6s, however good-looking the new black colors are. Functionally the 6s is a great option. The problem will come next Fall when iPhones with headphone jacks will only be available at the entry level. So right now it's a no-brained. Next year, it's a problem.
