Auxillite iPhone 7 Adapter Is As Elegant As These Things Go

smartphone-audio-jack-charger-auxillite-640x534

Apple’s boneheaded decisions can often create opportunities for other manufacturers to develop products to fill in the gaps the company so courageously opens up. The lack of audio port on the iPhone 7 is creating a secondary industry of dongles and adapters, and the Auxillite is one of the more elegant ones we’ve come across. It allows you to do the most basic of things with your brand new phone: charge and listen to your normal freaking headphones at the same time. The device even features a Digital To Analog Converter (DAC) running at 16-bits with sampling frequency 44.1kHz/48kHz and 24-bits with sampling frequency 96kHz. It’s small, sleek, and fits-in with the overall aesthetic of the phone. And at $13 for one, it’s priced just right. The kickstarter is fully funded and the device should ship in June 2017.

Side Facing Apple Charger Plug

side-facing-apple-charger-plug-640x533

It’s the little things, we like to say. But it’s true. Sometimes the smallest change can make such a huge difference. For anyone with an Apple charger, you’ll know there are situations where you can’t power up due to its design. The Blockhead Side-Facing Plug for Apple Adapters and Chargers changes all that by making it possible to plug the transformer sideways, giving it a slim profile. It’s a simple $20 adapter, but it’s one that makes a heck of a big difference.

These Earrings Are Designed To Catch Your EarPods When They Inevitably Fall Out

apple-airpod-catching-earrings-1

One of the sadder design decisions from Apple’s recent iPhone 7 launch was related to the EarPods. They not only look arguably bad, but they also look like they’d fall straight out of your ear at the slightest bump… which would be ok if they were wired, but not so much when there’s a chance a fall means a trip to the Apple Store for a new pair. That’s why we’re finding these 3D printed earrings rather cool. They’re called M3D Twisty Earbud Catchers, they’re shaped like a tiny bucket that hangs right underneath your EarPods, and presumably will catch them when they pop out. The good news is that you can print them yourselves at home! The bad news is, of course, that you’re going to need a 3D printer to do that. The link to the 3D print file is below.

Screw You Apple, The Daptr Case Puts The Audio Jack Back Where It Belongs

daptr-iphone-7-case-with-3-5mm-audio-port-featured-image-672x372

Apple, as everyone knows, “courageously” ditched the audio jack in the latest incarnation of the phone that turned the company into the behemoth it is today. That made the purchase of the iPhone 7/7 Plus somewhat of a dilemma for people who like to listen to music while their phone is charging; would it be worth it, knowing you have to also upgrade your headphones or use an unsightly adaptor? Well, the Daptr case attempts to solve this issue by giving you the audio jack back. It does this by lengthening the phone somewhat and cramming it down there along with a Lightning port, so you can keep using the phone the way you want. Oh, and a second Lightning port for some reason. You’ll add just 3mm of thickness, but a hefty 20mm of length to an already long-ish phone. It’s available in December for $49.

Here Comes The iPhone 7 Adapter Parade

apple-adapter

Thinking of listening to music while charging your brand new iPhone 7? Think again, my friend. Or at least, don’t think you can do it without an adapter. What you see above is Belkin’s take on how this should be accomplished. It lets you connect a Lightning charger and a Lightning headphone to the device’s only port, and accomplish a task that required absolutely no adapters until today. But what’s that you say? You don’t have a Lightning-cable pair of headphones yet? Fear not, my friend, since you can use an adapter with this adapter. That’s right, Apple’s own Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter will work just fine with this. A headphone, going to an adapter, going to an adapter, going to the phone? Yeah, that’s just the kind of clean elegance that Steve Jobs would have dreamed of…

It’s $40, in case you’re actually thinking about it.
