Fortunately, the iPhone 7 doesn’t have that hideous 3.5 mm headphone jack, and Apple® graciously provided a little dongle so I can still use my ancient headphones that didn’t have the good sense of having a lightning connection.
Then Apple® introduced the new MacBook Pro, which allows me to live that #touchbarlife, and while they made the visionary move to remove the USB ports, the thunderbolt port, ethernet port, the SD card port, and probably some other stuff that’s so unnecessary I can hardly remember them (like the MagSafe power connection), they left the 3.5mm jack for headphones.
Now I have some sweet new dongles from Apple so I can connect all my super old and not cool anymore accessories to those super new and sweet USB-C ports. However, it looks like I need one more dongle to add to my collection.
I prefer to carry my new and beautiful Apple® headphones with just the lightning connection. But it turns out, my new sexy headphones can’t be part of my new #touchbarlife without a reverse of the lightning to 3.5 dongle.
So now I get to add to my collection by buying a new dongle with a male 3.5mm jack and a female lightning connector. My dongle fanny pack is filling up quick and I couldn’t be happier.
