Apple might bundle an adapter for those who want to continue to use 3.5mm audio cables.
The iPhone 7 has no 3.5mm audio jack. A new leak shows a short cable that allows users to connect their analog audio equipment to the iPhone 7. The audio jack to Lightning adapter cable looks like it is made by Apple. The cable is supposed to have leaked from a Vietnamese factory that works for Apple.

The leak comes from Vietnamese blog tinhte. I have not seen anything from these guys in long time, but they had legit iPhone leaks in the past. In the video below they demonstrate the usage of the 3.5mm adapter for the Lightning port.
I can imagine that Apple is throwing that cable into the iPhone 7 package to calm down consumers who want to continue using their current headphones with the iPhone 7. It does though not mean that the EarPods bundled are having a 3.5mm audio jack. That would be sick, as I said before. Any new product from Apple that requires an adapter to use is not what Apple stands for.
Earlier this month Lightning EarPods leaked, but the build quality is not matching that of Apple. They are a knock-off, but they show basically what to expect. There is hopes that Apple might even bundle Bluetooth EarPods with the iPhone 7, but that seems unlikely. Apple might offer them as accessory for the iPhone 7.
The new iPhone might not be called iPhone 7. A new rumor says Apple will call it iPhone 6SE to keep the full number upgrade for the redesigned 10th anniversary iPhone in 2017.
Leaked parts show that the iPhone 6SE has a streamlined design with more eye-pleasing solutions for the antenna lines and the camera lens mount. The most controversial feature of the iPhone 6SE is actually a lack of a feature. Apple is removing the 3.5mm audio jack. Headsets for the iPhone 7 will need to use the digital Lightning port or Bluetooth.
Apple is likely to bundle Lightning EarPods with the iPhone 7. Reports about Apple bundling an Lightning to 3.5mm audio jack adapter are ludicrous. If Apple is not bundling a Lightning EarPods, then the company completely lost its way. Nothing about an adapter is clean and simple.
The iPhone 6SE will offer new levels of performance with the new A10 CPU and the camera is also going to be yet again better. Apple is also finally giving the entry-level iPhone 7 32GB of storage.
