The iPhone 7 is here , and gone is the headphone jack . While Apple is bundling each new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with Lightning-based EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, the company hasn’t provided a solution to one common use case: How do you listen to music with headphones and charge your phone at the same time?
Belkin’s latest adapter solves that problem—the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar will allow you to do both simultaneously. This device plugs into your iPhone’s Lightning port, and includes two Lightning ports on the other end to plug in your EarPods and your charging cable. Belkin says that the adapter will work with all Lightning Audio products—not just Apple’s—and is also compatible with all iPhone 7 cases. It also works with battery packs and cases, including Apple’s iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case. It doesn’t have a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, so if you want to use an older pair of headphones, you’ll still need that headphone adapter from Apple.
