    Hi all,

    I'm looking for an adaptor, but can't seem to find one that exists.

    I've got an iPhone6, and looking to connect it to a 3.5mm audio jack (headphone-type) while also charging it. I can connect the audo and power separately, but I'd like to have only one cable running to my phone.

    Is this possible? Has anybody found such a beast?

    I'd also be okay with a 30-pin to usb/3.5mm, so long as it still sent audio and charged when I added a 30-pin to lightning adaptor. I see a few of these out there, but does anybody have experience with them and an iPhone6?

    Thanks!

    Im looking for the same thing as well. Closest I can find is this for the car, but it will still require a 30 pin to lightning adapter

    My understanding is that the Lightning connection is digital only, and did away with the "iPod out" functionality of the 30 pin connector. I think you will simply have to bite the bullet and connect two cables.

    I have a 30-pin to USB+3.5mm audio that I'm using in the car along with an Apple Lightning to 30 pin adapter. Works fine, but it's clearly a hack.
