    Seriously, Apple needs to offer both USB-A and USB-C Lightning cables for iPhone 7, AirPods, Magic Keyboard 2, and Magic Trackpad purchases. This is silly...

    You forgot to mention the dock for the iPhone 7 seems to have a jack, so if you charge it you have to buy an old pair of earbuds if you wanna use the earbuds, you can't use your iPhone 7 lightning earbuds.

    They better clean up this whole connectivity problem they've made for themselves within the next year or so, or they are going to be looking at some real problems moving forward.

    If they really wanted to be "courageous" they should have just gone all in and put USB-C in the iP7.

    Seriously - we shouldn't let Apple get away with this kind of s**t anymore...
    How Do I connect the Lightning EarPods to the new MacBook Pro?!?!

    Only way is really the Lightning to 3.5mm dongle I think? Pretty embarrassing for Apple... Lightning needs to go.

    Edit - Actually I got that backwards. Well I don't really know how to do it then...

    What would've made people angrier?
    3.5mm -> nada
    Lightning -> USB-C
    Apple lacks real courage :rolleyes:
