This Belkin adapter will let you charge your iPhone 7 with your earphones plugged in

Do you charge your iPhone 7, or do you listen to music through your wired earphones? You can't do both at the same time. This is the world we live in now, and a dilemma many people will face with the latest iPhone.

Fortunately, Belkin has a solution. The tastefully-named Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar™ adapter costs US$40 and includes two Lightning ports - one for charging and one for the new Lightning EarPods. Which means you'll have to plug Apple's included Lightning to 3.5mm dongle into this peripheral if you want to use regular headphones and charge your phone at the same time.

According to Belkin, the adapter supports 48 kHz, 24-bit audio output, as well as remote control and mic support for Apple-made headphones.

With regards to local availability, it's expected to hit retail by end of 2016.
