Apple has recently announced its latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With it, company has made courageous move and has removed 3.5mm Audio Jack. Now, head phones work using lightning port. The same port is used for charging the devices as well, so one cannot listen to audio in headphones and charge the phone at the same time.
To fix this problem, Belkin has introduced Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar connector that allows users to charge iPhones and plug in headphones at the same time.
It supports pass-through charging up to 12W for iPhone and iPad and supports up to 48 kHz 24-bit audio output as well. It is compatible with Lightning Audio headphones and Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack adapter.
It is special made for iPhone and iPad, works with iPhone 7 Smart Battery case and supports remote control and microphone from lightning audio headphones.
The Belkin Lightning Audio + RockStar connector is priced at US$ 39.99 and will be released on October 10, 2016. It will be available at Belkin.com, Apple.com and Apple retail stores as well.
Steve Malony, VP, GM Belkin commenting on the launch said –
We’re excited to offer the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar to our customers, extending our family of RockStar multi-port products and creating an easy way for people to charge and listen on the go
