Wired Workarounds

Lots of Options!

A new iPhone comes with an included lightning-to-headphone jack adapter. But if you lost it, you may just want to buy a replacement.

Or if you are constantly listening to music at work, maybe you need to be able to charge your phone while still using headphones. In that case, you will want another type of adapter that can do both at the same time.

Whatever your needs, it's important to remember that you get what you pay for! Here, we outline some of the typical choices you would have that allow you to still use wired headphones with your newer iPhone.

Standard Adapter

This simple adapter allows you to simply plug your normal headphones into a 3.5 mm jack. But be warned, you will not be able to charge your phone at the same time!

Lightning to Headphone + Charger

If you need to charge your phone and use a headphone jack, you may want to go with a dual function adapter.

Lightning Wired Headphones

Another simple solution is to get a set of wired headphones that use the lightning jack. Yes, you can't charge while you use them. But there's no need for an adapter and you can choose from a number of brands.
