Auxillite iPhone 7 Adapter Is As Elegant As These Things Go

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.

The iPhone 7 Is Invigorating The Dongle Market, For Proof, Here’s the iLDOCK

Last time we wrote about a similar dongle, it was for Belkin’s offering, which had a bunch of shortcomings. For one, it simply added a second lightning port so you could charge and listen to headphones at the same time, but if your headphones were “old school”, you would’ve needed an additional dongle for it to work. Well, with the iLDOCK, if you’re planning on staying in the 3.5mm camp and don’t want to double-dongle it, you can do what normal humans do and charge your phone while listening to music stress-free. Granted, you’re still stuck having to carry a stupid dongle for this, but hey, it’s $18 for 2 so even if you lose one, you have a backup.
