    I wonder if the adapter in the box will work with these dongles in addition to headphones.

    Whoa, I never even knew those things existed. Did those really pose a threat to Apple Pay? They must be about as popular as the recently deceased CurrentC.

    Apple Pay is much more elegant; you don’t have to carry that ugly dongle around.

    These are for people who are vendors in a flea market to accept payments. Also those weren't really case friendly either maybe they will work with the adapter

    I didn't even think of this either. Square does have a wireless one though, which uses the new required chip technology as well as NFC Payments like Apple Pay.

    I would imagine you could also use the adapter that comes with the phone to use the mag stripe reader.

    I have a Thermodo for temperature measurement. I asked them if thought their the device would work with the dongle. They were confident that it would but can't be sure until they get a 7 to test it.
