There were loads of complaints when Apple announced they’d be removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Admittedly, people have managed to get by somehow, but for those holding out for other options, Incipio has got your back. The Incipio OX Case was announced this morning at CES 2017, and it brings back the headphone jack to your iPhone 7 without blocking access to your Lightning port for charging. The best of both worlds will be available in the near future.
That’s right, you can be dongle free with your iPhone 7. Plug in your favorite pair of headphones and charge your iPhone at the same time — what’s not to like? The OX Case will, obviously, add just a bit of length to the bottom of your iPhone 7, but based on what we’ve seen from Incipio, they don’t add much bulk to their cases. OX offers an easy snap-on design and a shock absorbent exterior to protect from falls.
The Incipio OX Case will be available Q1 of this year with an MSRP of $59.99. You’ll be able to choose from Black, Forest, or Purple color options. You can read more in the full press release below
