    A bit disappointed that Apple have not provided the travel case with the new Lightning Earphones....I used it all the time as it kept my Earphones tidy in my bag

    And just to prove that the size isn't an issue......here's a pic showing them inside the case.....they fit easily too (I had read in another thread that they didn't fit)

    Cost Cutting I suppose.....I'll just have to keep my old case!!![​IMG]

    I would say it's more to save on loads of plastic which most people don't even use

    Do the pods sold in stores come boxed as they do in the iPhone 7?

    It's part of their initiative to use less plastic in their packaging.

    The inner tray looks to be made out of a potato cardboard type packaging, rather than the plastic of old years.

    Thank you. I'll have to check my 6S+ box and see if it's in there. I've never used the pods since I'm always on Bluetooth.

    I got one with my SE headphones - it's still in the box with the headphones in it :)

    Apple is making a move away from plastics, in favor of paper and cardboard for their packaging. All in the name of being more environmentally responsible. It's why they switched to nicer paper bags in their stores as well.

    They are more awkward to put in the old case because of the flatter lightening head.
