A video has surfaced online, alleging to show Apple’s next-gen Lightning EarPods on an iPhone running iOS 9.

While we’ve heard rumors that the iPhone 7 may ditch the headphone jack, and have even seen blurry (and not-so-blurry) photos appearing to confirm the same thing, this is the first time a video has appeared to show off Apple’s forthcoming EarPods in all their 3.5mm jack-free glory. Check it out below.

The iPhone 7 might look two years old when it goes on sale this September, but it will be much more exciting than you anticipated, according to the latest claims from Deutsche Bank analysts.

Apple’s 4.7-inch model is expected to get an upgraded camera with optical image stabilization, a Force Touch home button, “professional-class waterproofing,” and more.

New EarPods equipped with a Lightning connector have again been pictured ahead of the iPhone 7’s launch this fall. It’s thought Apple’s next-generation devices won’t have 3.5mm headphone jacks like all their predecessors, but these EarPods could ease the pain of that loss.

New photos of what are claimed to be Apple’s next-generation EarPods all but confirm that its iPhone 7 series will ship without the beloved headphone jack.

The new EarPods, which surfaced on Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo, swap the 3.5mm jack we’ve been using for decades for a Lightning connector.
