As you can see from the external features above, there is no audio jack so Apple has released the iPhone 7 series with wireless AirPods that have a lightning connector (that you plug into the charging port) and can detach and plug into your ears to play audio. They have a built-in tap to turn on feature and automatically detect when they are in your ears.
