If there’s one thing Apple has proven, it is that if a feature is removed, resistance is pretty much futile. Despite consumers outcry about the lost of the headphone jack, it is not coming back. Period. The dongle is your best bet to stay on the wired route, but at the expense of the inability to charge and use the headphones at the same time. That’s before this week. Now, with Belkin 3.5 mm Audio and Charge Rockstar Dongle, you can charge your lovely iPhone 7 or later and listen to music with your favorite headphones via the good’ol 3.5 mm headphone jack.
It is not the perfect solution, but it is the solution for now and it will be the solution for foreseeable future cos we all know, the days of headphone jack are numbered. So, as it appears, your gadget life is not going to get any more tidier. You can find the Belkin 3.5 mm Audio and Charge Rockstar Dongle on Apple on and offline stores, retailing for $34.95 a pop.
