If I can sync my phone and charge it at the same time through the lightning connector on my PC, why can you not charge and listen to music at the same time through the lightning connector with the Iphone 7? I imagine there is much more data transferring during a sync than just listening to an mp3. The fact that they got rid of the headphone jack is only an issue because people want to charge and listen at the same time, which IS NOT unreasonable to expect by the way. It seems to me that the fact that the lightning connector cannot handle a basic function such as this a few years after it was introduced, shows poor forward thinking and planning on apple's part. I foresee a new jack standard in Iphone's future.
