One of the burning questions surrounding the upcoming iPhone 7 is whether the device will come with a headphone jack or not. And despite a slew of rumors, no one is really sure what to believe.

The latest report on the matter comes from Japanese Apple-tracking site Mac Otakara, which reports, citing unidentified sources, that the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will ship with a headphone jack. The report also claims the device will come bundled with an adapter that would allow iPhone 7 owners to connect their headphones through the Lightning port on the bottom of the rumored device.

ZDNet earlier reported on the Mac Otakara report.

While it’s hard to believe anything related to Apple rumors, given how secretive the iPhone maker is, the latest report throws more fire on a hotly contested debate over whether the next iPhone will come with a headphone jack or not.

Over the last several months, a slew of rumors has cropped up, saying that Apple is eliminating the headphone jack in the iPhone 7. Some reports suggested Apple would move to Bluetooth-connected earbuds or headphones that would allow users to listen to audio without being tethered to their smartphones. Apple might also bundle an adapter that would let users keep using their tethered earbuds or earphones.

While the move would be a drastic one, it wouldn’t be the first time Apple has done it. The company has, after all, switched quite dramatically from a 30-pin dock connector to its current Lightning port, which caused some outcry among those who needed to buy adapters to accommodate the new port. Apple was also willing to mix disc drives in its computers long before others had plans to do so. More recently, Apple nixed standard ports in its MacBook with a single USB Type-C connector. Obsolescence, in other words, doesn’t scare Apple.

Still, eliminating a headphone jack might be a stretch, even for Apple. While more people are using Bluetooth-connected headphones than ever before, they don’t always deliver the same sound quality. And it’s worth noting that millions of people around the globe are still using the earbuds Apple has been bundling with its products for years. Selling a smartphone that wouldn’t support those earbuds would effectively make millions of people upgrade to a new product to get their desired music-listening result.

Some say yes; others say no.
