I lost the earbuds that came with my iPhone 7. I hated them anyway but they were handy when I wanted to listen so some music while on my commute train. So, I purchased an after market set on Amazon for about $30. They worked fine; good audio quality, comfortable and they certainly fit better the the ones that came with the phone. After this latest IOS update I get an error message that they are no longer supported. So, now I have a very useless set of earbuds that won't work in anything else because of the lightning connector and I can't return them because the 30 day window has closed. I went on the Apple website to see what they had that would actually work and they want an absurd amount of money for virtually the same thing! And I refuse to get those ridiculous AirBuds. I feel as though I'm being held hostage by Apple: Buy our overpriced earbuds or you're out of luck! Anyone else experience this?
