News flash: Apple's new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don't have standard 3.5mm headphone jacks! This topic hasn't been widely discussed at all, so don't feel bad if you were unaware of this major change. In all seriousness, Apple decided to remove the dedicated audio port on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to clear space for other components and to help make the iPhone more water-resistant. The result undoubtedly ruffled some feathers — and Apple's ridiculous "courage" explanation didn't help matters — but there are some ways to work around the issue if you decided to go ahead and purchase an iPhone 7 anyway.
Looking to charge your phone while you listen to music? You'll find several different ways to do it laid out in the post below.
Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus ship with Lightning EarPods as well as an adapter that will let you plug regular headphones with a 3.5mm plug into the iPhone's Lightning port. Unfortunately, neither of those solutions will let you charge your phone while you listen to music.
When you're at your desk or stationary anywhere else, a dock can be just what the doctor ordered. There are a bunch of options out there but the best solution is probably Apple's own iPhone dock, which is available in space gray, silver, rose gold, gold and black.
