Apple has taken the courageous step to rid us all of the archaic headphone jack, and usher in a new future of lightning enabled audio in its new iPhone 7 range. “But how will I charge my phone and listen to music at the same time?” I hear you cry.
Why, with this $60 Belkin adapter, of course. It is has been given the thumbs up from Apple, after all.
So what do you get for the price? The Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar (because it is, indeed, a rockstar for solving this problem that never existed before) supports pass-through charging up to 12W for iPhone and iPad, up to 48 kHz, 24-bit audio output and is compatible with both the Lightning Audio headphones and the Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter.
But that’s not all! It supports remote control and microphone from Lightning Audio headphones and it works with Apple iPhone 7 Smart Battery case.
All for the low, low price of $59.99.
Worth it? You be the judge.
