With iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple took a courageous step to get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack. While that contributed to a sleek design, it also contributed to a lot of criticism, because the aux on the headphones was replaced with a lightning port, which the device also uses for charging. In other words, an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus user could either listen to music using headphones or plug in the charger. Naturally, to combat this issue, many accessory makers have released a crack to this problem, and so has Belkin. Also Read - iPhone 7 at Rs 23,999 on Amazon is a bad BAD purchase in 2020

The accessory is available for purchase in India, and is priced at a promotional value of Rs 3,999 for a limited period. However, maximum retail price of the accessory is Rs 4,999.
