Now you can listen to tunes while you charge your iPhone 7.
When Apple stripped the iPhone 7 of the headphone jack, it included a Lightning-to-3.5mm adaptor in the box so that anyone without a set of Bluetooth headphones could still plug in their trusty buds. And while that’s much appreciated, it did create the small problem that now you can’t charge the phone while you’re listening to tunes.
Don’t worry, though; there’s always a good Samaritan on Kickstarter out to allay our woes. And in this case, it’s iLDOCK. Having completely smashed its modest funding goal with still a few days left to go, iLDOCK is out to rig up the iPhone 7 with docks and ports galore.
The most basic iLDOCK comes with both a Lightning port and a 3.5mm headphone jack, giving you the former luxury of charging the iPhone 7 and listening to music through headphones all at once. Next up is the iLDOCK Duo, which comes with two Lightning ports, in case you’re a two Lightning ports kind of iPhone user.
Then there’s the iLDOCK Plus, which brings the 3.5mm jack, Lightning port and ports for a SD/ TF card and USB. This little multitasker lets you read pictures from up to 128GB flash cards or connect to your USB drives.
Pre-order prices begin at $10 (around £8) for the basic iLDOCK. The iLDOCK Duo is a little pricier at $12 (around £10), while the iLDOCK Plus sits at $20 (around £16). You can jump in line for worldwide December shipping right now.
