i am not sure what the hype is around the lightening port is for music, but i just tried a pair of upbeats lightening headphones on it with my music and videos and the sound cut in and out, i had to keep adjusting the connector and sometimes only one side of headphones worked. i never had this much trouble with a pair of 3.5 mm headphones. Anybody else found this? is it the headphones? or my music? it is mp3s. the ipad is new, and the port works fine for data transfer and charging, but i could hear static through the headphones with no music playing. am on an ipad pro 10.5 2017, ios 11.2.6 or the latest ios.
