    Both. It can detect if lightning headphones are connected and works as a passthrough device. It can also split the lightning to 3.5mm just as the included adapter does.

  • Yes you can use the lightning headphones, but there is a catch. If you use the lighting headphones you can't charge your iPhone at the same time, which makes it kinda useless as a dock. Apple really needed to add a separate lighting connection so you could use either type of headphones and still keep the dock connected to computer/outlet for charging. However, they see lighting headphones as merely a stopgap. They want you to go wireless.
