    I hope the new included earphones don't leak as badly as the current provided earphones... (I assume they will still provide a basic pair of earphones when you purchase the product, or are they ditching that to make a bit more money from the customers?)

    And how much will Apple be charging for an offical Lighting -> 3.5mm socket adapter for those who have current wired ear/head phones and don't want to waste battery life by using bluetooth or wireless.

    Nice money maker from Apple through, charging a license fee for other manufacturers to use the socket to provide ear/head phones ;)

    The new Lightning connected earphones are included.

    The adaptor is also included with every iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. No separate purchase necessary.

    Why is the prices in uk gone up despite Apple announcing that it will be available at the same price as previous model?

    Base model iPhone 7 is showing at £599 (was £539 previously). The price is USA for iPhone 7 is $649 (approx £487).

    Is it a case of ripoff Britain yet again??

    Well, I've got some decent quality earphones, so I won't be buying any wireless ones.

    Well the pound is now quite a bit weaker against the dollar compared with last year. The previous base model was 16GB, the iPhone 7 is 32GB.

    Should round it up to a £1k, they'll pay it regardless...

    The comparison that I've done $649 to £487 is based on today's exchange rate, so I don't think it's to do with weak pound.

    Despite the lightening earphones being included, I'm not impressed in the slightest by the removal of the headphone jack. The lightening connector is the weakest part of the phone so it just seems like another money spinner when earphones break as often as the charging cable.

    Can't see why anyone would want to fork out for the AirPods. Earphones fall out so who would want to risk losing/breaking one at that kind of price?

    The only part that I liked was the waterproof factor. When they said wireless I was expecting wireless charging!

    Don't like it? Don't buy it ;)

    I was out today trying to find a more robust lightning cable, as I'm sick of them breaking.
