So I got my hands on a pair of them newfangled earpods with a lightning connector, and the first thing I noticed was that when plugging them into my iPhone 6s, it didn't wake the screen and show the music app widget like it does when I plug in the older earpods with the 3.5mm plug. It still plays my music where it last left off when I hit the play button on the remote, but I'd prefer it if it would also wake up the phone/screen with the music app on screen like it used to. Is this just an pre iPhone 7 thing, or does the screen not wake up when you plug lightning earpods into an iPhone 7 either? Is there something I need to enable in the settings menu? Any help would be appreciated.
