Apple announced its new MacBook Pro computers last week. Like the iPhone 7, the laptop eliminates quite a few ports that came standard on past models — MagSafe power, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt 2 and HDMI. These are replaced with just two or four Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C ports. That makes for a sleek-looking laptop, but it also means you can’t plug your iPhone in without an adapter. Here’s what you’ll need.
The rumours are true: the iPhone 7 doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Apple is including Lightning headphones in the box, but how are you going to listen to your music and charge your phone at the same time? Belkin have the answer: the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar.
According to a purported piece of packaging for the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus, the next iPhones will come with… Lightning EarPods!
Photos appeared online today of one of the biggest new features of the forthcoming iPhone 7: a headphone adapter. That’s because the next iPhone is expected to ditch the ubiquitous 3.5mm headphone jack to save space, pushing headphone users to switch to Bluetooth or Lightning alternatives.
Eagle-eyed users spotted a new unmentioned feature in the latest iOS 10 beta: your iPhone will now warn you if it detects moisture in the Lightning port, allowing you to pull out in time to potentially save your phone from damage. The story, reported by Engadget, states that the feature only works with recent iPhone models: the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus and SE.
