In the video, embedded below, the newly leaked headphones are compared to the older headphones that Apple provides iPhone 4S customers with. The basic headphone design has remained the same since the iPhone was originally released in 2007. Moreover, the site also posted a closeup image of the attached cable that reveals the following tagline: “Designed by Apple in California Assembled in Vietnam”.
Furthermore, Tinhte has a reputable past of obtaining and leaking pre-release devices and various Apple prototypes. However, the authenticity of this specific leak cannot be verified and the apparent lack of volume controls near the earbud certainly doesn’t add merit to these redesigned headphones.
Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone in a little over a week on September 12th. Will the sixth-generation iPhone will indeed come bundled with these new headphones, or similar ones? We’ll find out soon enough – stay tuned for complete coverage on Apple and this year’s upcoming iPhone refresh.
