    Normal Charger cable with the ability to plug in headphones with a lightning/3.5 Jack towards the phone end of the cable... Just a quick mock up to get my point across, I'm sure it could be implemented better then I have presented it here.

    Would solve the problem of not being able to charge the iPhone 7 and listen to music at the same time when traveling etc.

    Anyone know of a product like it?

    It seems various people are waiting/hoping for something along those lines to exist.

    If there is such adapter and it is cheaper than 25 I will consider trying it out, on iPhone 6s Plus.

    Does Apple sell anything for less that $25?

    I think 3rd parties will jump on this quickly

    The Lightning to 3.5 mm adapter at $9? Well, technically it's not on sale yet... And looking at that mockup in the first post, I feel really fortunate that this situation doesn't apply to me. Yikes! It would suck to be stuck to a charging phone while listening to music.

    And how much for the one that allows simultaneous charging and listening? Will that be $9 too?

    Absolutely not if you want to trust your iPhone to live through the experience.
