Apple ditched the headphone jack in favour of just using the lightning port. So now, of course, there's a dongle to replace the headphone jack. Apple will include one with every new iPhone 7.
Good ol' Timmy Cook over at Apple really had a chance to charge us, the common man and woman, and exorbitant amount of money for this simple dongle. Well, he didn't. It's $12. Some folks online speculated it might cost 25 or 40 bucks, which is the cost of multiple burgers. That's unacceptable. This only costs one burger. Thanks Tim!
