    Anyone know what is apple Lightning to 3.5mm Adair for iPhone7 and how it works?

    Is it some adapter for the earbuds? When the battery gets low how do you charge the earbuds? And how long does the battery last?

    There's no headphone jack on the phone. The adapter lets you use regular headphones by plugging into your phone's sole port (Lightning). No extra batteries involved...

    I guess this is if you don't want to buy earbuds and just use regular headphones!! But you will than need Apple adapter called Lightning to 3.5mm Adair.

    So it buy the earbuds or buy the adapter called Lightning to 3.5mm Adair.

    In the Box
    • iPhone with iOS 10
    • EarPods with Lightning Connector
    • Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter
    • Lightning to USB Cable
    • USB Power Adapter
    • Documentation

    Don't need to buy anything.

    PS: What is an "Adair"?

    How long does the battery last on the EarPods before you have to charge it?

    The EarPods are not wireless and they do not run on battery.

    You might be thinking of the AirPods, which are wireless and do run on battery. Those run on a 5 hour charge but they come in a battery case that offers 25 hours of charge. Supposedly 15 minutes of being in the case means 3 hours of listening time.

    The EarPods don't have a battery, they are wired. They connect with the Lightning port.

    So the AirPods don't come with the phone only the EarPods?

    You have to buy the AirPods?

    AirPods are not available yet - Late October for those.
    Yes, extra cost, they will be $160.

    As was already posted, the iPhone 7 comes with the lightning EarPods.

    Considering Apple is selling the AirPods separately for $159, yes they definitely don't come with the iPhones.

    Spending that much money on phone Apple should give you the AirPods for free.

    If Apple included air pods they would just jack up the price by $159.
