    So with the headphones plugged in to my 7+, if I tap the bottom back of my iPhone with my knuckles my headphones cut out. The headphone controls don't do anything, and the phone's up/down toggle adjusts volume not headphones. The ear speaker doesn't work during a phone call. I have the restart the phone for everything to work correctly. Charging, however is unaffected.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like you have a defective head phone outlet.

    Since the lightning port still charges and works for data transfer it might be something else.

    So apparently this is a new issue with early build iPhone 7 and 7+s. The latest iOS update causes the issue and Apple is going to replace it out out of warranty.
