Video: iPhone 7 gets a headphone jack, find out how
And sure, Apple is packaging the iPhone 7 with a 3.5mm to lightning adapter, but what if you want to charge your phone and listen to music at the same time?
It's been a few weeks since the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus went on sale, which means some owners are already sick of carrying around the headphone adapter. And unless you've picked up a pair of Lightning headphones for yourself, you're probably either hating the dongle life right now or rigging some other ways to output audio from the smartphone.
If you're desperately looking for a way to get back the jack, there's a clever iPhone case up for grabs on Indiegogo that could ease your pain.
In their website fuze describes this move as 'Bring back jack campaign'.

While others have beaten Fuze to the punch at the concept of a headphone jack case, Fuze appears to be the first to allow you to actually spend your hard-earned money at the promise of receiving a battery case with a headphone jack from a crowdfunding company that has no previous experience shipping hardware. If you are willing to take the risk, the Fuze case starts at $50 over at Indiegogo. The company hopes to ship the first early-bird batch before the end of December.
