Apple is set to kill the century old headphone jack when it unveils the iPhone 7 during an event on September 7th, which is bad news for your favorite pair of wired headphones, but great news for accessory makers like Griffin.
The popular iPhone accessory maker is already prepared to cure your headphone jack woes this fall with the introduction of its newest adapter that gives your old headphones new Bluetooth 4.1 powers.
Photos of an alleged iPhone 7 adapter that will allow owners to connect regular 3.5mm headphones to a Lightning port have surfaced out of Asia today.
The new dongle has been rumored for months and will supposedly be included in the new iPhone so that customers aren’t forced to buy new headphones. Images of the adapter look very similar to the style of Apple’s other adapters, and in a video it appears to only work on iOS 10 devices.
Imagine walking around listening to your music without buds blocking your ears, keeping you present and aware in the place you’re standing. That’s exactly what bone-conduction headphones offer, like this Bluetooth-enabled set by KOAR. Instead of air, they use your skull as the medium to transmit sound to your earbuds for a one-of-a-kind listening experience. And right now, you can get a set for $76.99, almost half off.
