    Could be a box for a knockoff. Few more days and we'll know.

    That text is clearly retouched. On a clear brochure it said: lightning plug EarPods (or something like that)...anyway we're just some days away to find out.

    Well a lot of people were skeptical from the size of the text that it couldn't possibly fit on the box. Plus with it saying "Lighting to Headphone Jack Adapter" when apple would much more likely say "Lightning to 3.5mm Adapter" or something similar.

    Those few more days can't come soon enough so that we can be done with all the guessing that won't change what will be announced one way or another.

    apple is really keen on semantics. by calling it headphone jack, it sounds like they removed something needed to connect a pair of headphones (hence a headphone->jack).
    in reality they'd want to push the idea that you don't need a 3,5mm port to plug your/(their) headphones, a lightning port is just as fine.
    i'm just being over optimistic here... :(

    Many people get many free things from Apple. I've gotten a free keyboard, a free printer, and a free replacement. Many have reported getting free replacements and free screens from Apple. So much so that people make threads whining when they don't get exceptions and free stuff.

    Problem is, we've developed a culture of entitlement.

    But what you said about Cook is becoming a popular sentiment, so I can see why you'd post it.

    Not arguing because I agree with much of what you said. But we're talking about todays Apple including something extra in retail packaging, not Apple support being awesome and going above and beyond what they need to by giving something free.

    And secondly, how many of those free items have you gotten lately? My snarky attitude is because Tim Cooks Apple is one that progressively has been trading "User Experience" for "Profit". So when it comes to Apple including a very expensive set of bluetooth headphones with the new iPhone then I still stand by my original statement.

    Ha.Ha. And Ha. :D

    Ok, much of what you said makes sense, but you do realize that you have only 1 vote: your pocketbook. How are you voting?

    Wow. That first language is Hungarian and I can say it's a solid translation, if fake. This is the first in seeing this. Interesting.

    Two ways to look st this. You can see it as free or you can see it as value added since customers might feel very little has changed with the phone. Bundled Bluetooth buds might just be an incentive that pushes folks to upgrade/buy the new device that they wouldn't have chosen before.

    I agree it does look very authentic! The only thing that threw me off was putting the name of the device under the capacity which I don't believe has been done before.

    Could be on the sides and back I guess. Makes sense from an inventory standpoint. Boxes are same/similar in size and shape between devices so the better labeled anboxnis the easier it is for a retail employee to snag the right one at a glance.

    I think this could be real and am somewhat excited for this now. Mostly interested in whether these will be arts the to each other with a wife or be completely wireless. Also battery life. And mostly, msrp on the buds themselves.

    Fake fake fake! Apple always prints on the box. You can see this has been printed on some card.
