However, the company has justified its decision by supplying a 3.5mm Lightning adaptor with every iPhone 7 as well as providing lightning-enabled EarPods. (Also read: 10 High-End Wireless Headphones For Your IPhone 7)
As far as technology is concerned, it’s a good move, but it has reduced the number of ports from two to one. That means if you are making use of the Lightning port for your headphones, you can’t charge the phone at the same time. That means the two things can’t go hand-in-hand.
No worries, you can use your phone while charging it. And if your next question is how, here is three ways to fix the Apple’s Lightning port issue.
1. Use wireless headphones: The best way to listen to music and charge your iPhone 7 simultaneously is to use wireless headphones as most wireless headphones rely on Bluetooth technology. It has nothing to do with the Lightning port that can be used for charging the phone. Make sure your headphones are fully charged when you want to use them for uninterrupted service.

2. Make your wired headphones wireless: The solution lies in enabling Bluetooth functionality on any pair of wired earphones or headphones. This also comes in the form of the Griffin iTrip Clip Bluetooth Headphone Adapter that allows you to plug in your wired headphones and utilize its built-in Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity to wirelessly connect to your iPhone.
3. Lightning splitter: Just like the headphone splitter used by many to share the fabled 3.5mm headphone jack, Belkin’ Lightning splitter, or ‘Lightning Audio + Charge Rockstar’ offers users the ability to plug two Lightning cables into a single Lightning port. The cables allow you to listen to your favourite tunes and charge your iPhone up at the same time.
