7 solutions for the iPhone 7’s lack of headphone jack
No headphone jack? No problem—or at least, not a problem that can’t be fixed with a solid adapter.
Apple caused a commotion after confirming that the iPhone 7 would only sport a Lightning port. This means that all your old headphones with a 3.5mm plug would have to be hooked up to your iPhone 7 using an adapter.
But which adapter is right for you? Here are a few choices...and one that only solves part of the problem.
Apple’s Lightning to 3.5mm adapter
Apple saved itself much of the outrage for getting rid of the headphone jack by including a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter free with every iPhone 7. This adapter is so lightweight, you’ll hardly notice it hanging out at the end of of your headphone cord. It’s also thin enough that it doesn’t get stuck in your pocket. Best of all, you can replace this adapter for only $9, which is very affordable by Apple standards. By comparison, the 30-pin to Lightning adapter is $29, and it had to be purchased separately.
