Apple now sells an iPhone dongle with a headphone jack and charging port

  Apple now sells an iPhone dongle with a headphone jack and charging port It took an entire year after the release of the iPhone 7 for Apple to start selling a dongle that lets you plug in headphones (or your car’s AUX cable) and charge at the same time. But now it’s here. Praise be! Apple is just selling the thing, mind you — not making it. In September, Belkin announced a new version of its “Rockstar” adapter that now includes a 3.5mm jack and Lightning port. Last year’s version had two Lightning ports, so if you wanted to use wired headphones with it, you had to plug Apple’s own headphone dongle into another dongle. Going double-dongle is bad enough on a laptop, but on a phone?! Good grief.

You can test this by locking your phone for 5 minutes and then checking again. (Ideally your phone shouldn't be doing anything during this time, which means you'll need to restart if you get a call, text or notification.) If your standby time is 5 minutes higher, that's a good sign, but if your usage time has bumped up a minute or more, you might have a battery drain issue. If this is the case, make a Genius Bar Appointment to figure out what's causing the issue.

15. Make sure your computer has power when you plug in your phone.

If it's in standby or sleep mode and not actively charging your phone, it could be draining the device's battery.

Face ID could come to the iPad Pro next year .
The first iPhone with Face ID hasn’t even hit stores, but we’re already getting hit with a rumor about where Apple’s new facial recognition tech might turn up next. MacRumorsand 9to5Macreport that the frequentlyThat’s it for details right now. And since it’s still early to be predicting this kind of thing, Kuo’s note should probably be taken with a grain of salt — especially since the first Face ID cameras aren’t widely in use yet, so Apple has no idea how customers are going to respond.
