New iPhone 7 Case Brings Back the Headphone Jack (thenextweb.com)

Apple removed the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, forcing users to use either create an iPhone 7 case with a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack.
Bluetooth, the Lightning port or included Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adaptor in order to listen to music through headphones. However, one company took it upon themselves to

The company is called Fuze and they recently launched an Indiegogo campaign that promises to bring the audio port back to the iPhone 7.

The Next Web reports: To achieve this, the company is taking Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm adapter and building it straight into a case, where you can plug your headphones with "no dongles, no adapters, no problems."

 In addition to the audio port, the Fuze Case will also serve as a battery pack as it adds 2,400mAh of extra battery life to the iPhone 7 and 3,600mAh to the 7 Plus.

 It will be available in five different colors including white, black, gold, rose gold and blue.

 The case is currently available for $49 to "super early bird" backers, but will increase to $59 once more people have chipped in and will eventually sell for $69 in retail.

 The company expects to start shipping the accessory in December later this year. 


The net price for the case will be much higher than quoted because they will be charged an initial fee by Apple to use the lighltning port in the product and then there will be a "per unit price" tacked on to the products cost. 

But none the less this case makes it possible to now purchase the stupid jackless iPhone 7.
