I just got a Nexus 6p. Today, I plugged in apple earbuds and found that the phone doesn't recognize them (which struck me as odd because both the Nexus 6 and Nexus 4 support those headphones).
After a little bit of experimenting I found that the phone will recognize the headphones if I hold down the microphone button on the inline controls, but not otherwise (also, releasing the button causes the phone to stop recognizing them).
Can anyone else confirm this is an issue with the device? Or is it a hardware problem on my device?
Thanks so much,
Ordered a replacement, apple earbuds work great. Problem seems to have been a hardware failure.
