iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus came without the audio jack, and Apple accessory maker Belkin grabbed the opportunity to launch the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar adapter for the iPhone 7. Belkin started developing adapters to get back the lost functionality of the 3.5mm audio jack.
It comes with two Lightning ports which essentially will allow you to use the newly introduced Lightning EarPods and the Lightning cable for charging, at the same time.
The adapter supports 48kHz and 24-bit audio output, apart from remote control and mic support for Apple-made headphones.
Apple is bundling the Lightning EarPods and the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter with every iPhone 7, but if you happen to lose them, a replacement will cost you Rs. 2,500 ($29 in US) and Rs. 900 ($9 in US) respectively.
