    If I get this correctly (otherwise, PLEASE right my wrongs):
    1. Buy an iPhone 7, get new earpods(lightning)
    2. Need to charge new iPhone 7 while consuming media over earpods:
    3. :( not possible
    4. Buy a new MBP, try new earpods(ltng.)
    5. :( not possible
    6. Have 2 earpods for to different devices, both brand new.
    Im I a hippocrite (spelling?) for being annoyed by this? How on earth could a 101% Design-focused company like Apple release such a nonsense?

    You're not buying hard enough.

    (but in all seriousness, it's kinda sad actually, will keep my 6s as long as possible)

    it's Apple's way of saying 'go get the airpods'

    Time to go wireless.

    I just bought some Bose QC35s. Nice!

    I'm with you on this one... it's disgusting.

    I bought the iPhone 7 Plus knowing I'd only have to go a month or so until the Airpods came out... knowing that Apple promised late october release for the airpods...

    Now I'm past the return period, and I can't return the phone, and I can't use the phone without painful complications to charge or use earbuds at the same time.

    I don't want big bulky bose headphones. I want simple earbuds that just work.

    And now I'm stuck...
