Apple has modified the “Made for iPhone” (MFi) standard to include headphones that connect to iOS devices via the “Lightning” port instead of the headphone jack, according to media reports. Currently, the Apple-made EarPods use a regular 3.5 mm headphone jack and hence they can be used with any other device with a 3.5 mm audio port.
