    Not until they can get wireless data transfer speeds up to what you can achieve with the lightning connector.

    Unlike some companies Apple gets most of the kinks out before they release something

    If I had a set of Bluetooth headphones, then it wouldn't be a problem to me.

    The supplied EarPods don't sit in my ears that well. They keep falling out. I have to buy aftermarket ones that clip over my stupid ears. Damn nuisance.

    For one thing, I honestly don't give a crap about getting an iPhone 7. Yes, it's possible to still using existing headphones on your Lightning port, but it's still a hassle towards those who are comfortable with having a headphone jack on their phones. What if you want to listen to your music while your phone is charging? Sure, you use that Belkin adapter which has two Lightning ports, but it's not really the same for those who gave a crap about the headphone jack.

    Well said Eagle +1 to that would have been great if
    Apple had included the Belkin adapter in the box

    I agree. If they have the Belkin adapter, then it wouldn't be that bad. But Apple would say otherwise.

    It had an adapter to listen to things with headphones. Yes you can't charge the phone and listen to music at same time but it's just that. I am not complaining. I think it's the way technology is going to go. They sell a number of wireless Bluetooth headphones anyway. I know they are expensive but still. It's the way technology is going. People do not like major changes for the most part but they will adjust with time to those changes. Just my two cents here.
