    Apple will be, presumably, debuting new iPhones tomorrow at their annual September event. Jason Snell, at Six Colors, has a good run down on what to expect, and what to look for:

    Is there an additional wireless audio story? There have been rumors swirling around for a while that part of the headphone-jack removal would be a new set of Apple-branded wireless headphones, dubbed EarPods. Whether or not that rumor is true, I’m curious how Apple promotes wireless audio. Does it highlight Beats? Does it unveil new Apple-branded headphones? Does it use an alternative technology to Bluetooth?

    The Apple thread in our forums is always a fun place to talk about the announcements when they drop. So, if you’re watching tomorrow morning at 10:00am (PDT), come join in while we complain about our headphone jack-less future.

    Really anxious about this.

    Looking forward to upgrading to the iPhone 7. I hope there are some features that haven't been leaked out.

    Excited to check it out. Probably won't upgrade from my Apple Watch this year and I might hold on to my 5S for a little longer but Apple fall keynotes are one of my favorite things of the year.

    i got an SE a couple months ago because i'm struggling to get on board this larger phone trend, but i'm always excited to see what comes out

    I get that they removed the headphone jack to be innovative and all that but I'm really gonna miss it. I already lost those wireless headphones the iPhone 7 comes with just by looking at them.

    I don't think the iPhone 7 will come with wireless earbuds. The most common rumor is that it will include earbuds with a lightning connector.

    If I can't use an auxiliary cord or my $200 Bose headphones (with no Bluetooth) with an iPhone 7, I'm going to stick with my iPhone six plus

    I hope it they announce a new update to AirPlay.

    You should still be able to with a lightning/aux adapter. The adapter may be included with every phone.

    Excited to get rid of my shattered phone finally. It's been real, Iphone 6.

    Not wild about the whole wireless headphone thing. I know I'll get used to it but I'm so used to the plug in deal. I'll be sad if I forget to charge them before dialysis or something. Ugh.

    This is what I assumed would happen.

    You'll still be able to use a set of corded headphones through the lightning port

    Yeahhh I know. But I'm a sucker for latest/greatest so I'm sure I'll go the wireless set. Haha

    @Jason Tate just wondering...did you post a link to some completely wireless earbuds a while back? Seemed like an active company and they weren't ridiculous expensive. I've tried to find it but can't...or maybe you at least remember what I'm talking about...
  17. "Earin" I belive. I have read pretty bad reviews of them though, so I never ordered any.

    I have trouble believing any wireless headphone will sound better than its wired counterpart. I also fail to see the appeal of sticking some $30-plus peripheral into my phone simply to listen to music. All feels so cumbersome just for the sake of a thinner phone.

    I'm just not pumped to have one port for everything. What about when i'm driving and want to listen to music and charge at the same time? motorola did this on their phones this year as well. I hope this isn't the direction for all phones in the near future.

    That's another totally valid concern. Sounds like another peripheral you'll need to buy if you want to charge your phone and play music simultaneously. "Forward" in technology, backward in convenience.

    I hope they announce they're bringing back the iPod Classic so I can buy a new one when mine eventually stops working.

    Yeah, I'm living in the past. I'll see myself out.
