Today's Discovery: Lightning Earbuds work with older iPhones!
Posted by: graylocks

went with my son to an appointment this morning and on the way lamented i had left the earbuds for my 6s at home. he offered the use of his 10X pair while in his appointment but i said i doubted they would work as I assume the audio wiring has to be routed to the lightning jack. well, we gave it a shot and low and behold his earbuds work on my 6S. i guess the routing is through software not hardware.

not sure how often anyone else might need this tidbit but it sure came in handy for me today!

You lack faith in modern technologies. It's got a woofer and a tweeter!

We actually found this out (although I suspected it would work) the day the iPhone 7 came out. Wife brought hers home and since her old earbuds were shot, she plugged the new ones into her iPad Air. Worked.

Indeed. You need to spend the next decade making us whole again.

What about being a programmer at a company that doesn't care about body jewelry?

The lightning headphones should work with any device that has a lightning port. The port was designed to handle audio in and out.
