No, the iPhone 7 does not come with AirPods

As expected, Apple announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last week. Much of the ensuing buzz has centered around Apple's removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack. Like it or not, this still leaves two options to connect headphones to the latest iPhone models: wireless Bluetooth audio or wired headphones. There has been a lot of confusion surrounding this change, with many Apple fans believing that the company will ship the iPhone 7 with wireless AirPods. Let's bring some clarity to what's happened.

Why won't my AirPods connect to my iPhone?

Apple's AirPods have a simple one-tap setup process that syncs them to any compatible device through your iCloud account. Your AirPods should always be on and connected to your device after the initial setup is complete. Your device needs to be running iOS 10 or later and is also needs to be connected to your iCloud account. You can check what iOS your device is running by navigating to Settings > General > About. From here you can see what version of iOS you're running in the Version section.


Will Apple's Airpods work with the iPhone 6 or 6s?

Yes, Apple's AirPods are supported by all three iPhone 5 models, including the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. AirPods support any device running iOS 10 or later, watchOS 3 and macOS Sierra. This means the AirPods also support the sixth-generation iPod touch, iPhone SE and all iPhone 6 models and later. The wireless earbuds also work with most iPad models, the Apple Watch and even your Mac.
