Tip: Use Headphones and Charge iPhone 7 Simultaneously
On MacBreak Weekly 524, Rene Ritchie had a tip for listening to headphones and charging the iPhone 7 simultaneously. The first is a product from Belkin called the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar™. This is a dongle that Belkin worked on with Apple that is very similar to the original dongle, but has double Lightning ports on it. This means you can plug in Apple's EarPods and a power cable simultaneously.
The second solution is Apple's iPhone Lightning dock. This is the same dock as last year, but now there's a new matte black color option. This connects to the iPhone's Lightning port and has a 3.5mm headphone jack out. This is great if you're sitting at your desk or at a bedside table and want to use your headphones. The iPhone can charge with the dock, and you can listen with headphones for as long as you want.
