Just when we were almost certain Apple was going to shake things up with its iPhone 7 by removing the headphone port, a leak suggests otherwise.

Many rumours and leaks have suggested the iPhone 7 will not feature a headphone jack but will come with Lightning connected EarPods. Now a part, claimed to be for the iPhone 7, has leaked on Chinese site Weibo. This part features space for a headphone jack.

There is also rumour of Apple's own Bluetooth headphones that charge via the phone's Lighting port.

Chinese firm LeEco recently unveiled its LeEco phone with no headphone jack and a whopping 6GB of RAM, claiming two world firsts. It was thought that Apple might be the first to offer a wireless phone in the iPhone 7.

This leaked part is very similar to that found in the iPhone 6S and, in fact, could simply be a claim using just that part. So we're taking it with a pinch of salt.

Getting rid of the headphone port would stimulate sales of new headphones made specifically for iPhone which use the Lighting port. It would also help to push Bluetooth headphones, a good thing for Apple's accessory partners.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 7 at its annual event in September.
