New video shows Lightning enabled EarPods.JPG

A new video has emerged on YouTube that is claimed to show Lightning-enabled EarPods in action for the first time. 9to5 Mac notes that the Lightning-enabled EarPods in the video are being used with an iPhone 6s, and are shown complete with an in-line remote, which is also demonstrated in the video.

While not yet confirmed by Apple, and not likely to be confirmed by the company until the next iPhone is unveiled in early September, it’s pretty much a certainty, based on many different leaks, that the next iPhone will not have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The only question yet to be answered is what sort of headphones will be included. Will they be Lightning-enabled EarPods as shown in the video? Or will they be wireless? Or will they be regular 3.5 mm EarPods, but with a 3.5 mm dongle included, as has also been rumoured recently? I’m inclined to think that it will be the Lightning-enabled EarPods, as Apple will most likely want to sell any dongle separately, and wireless headphones could prove to be too expensive to be given away with the phone.

So can you have the phone on a charger while you're using lightning jack earphones? I suppose there will be some kind of klutzy adapter that will let you do this.
