Belkin, the mobile accessories provider, has announced the 3.5 mm Audio + Charge RockStar adapter for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus. The 3.5 mm Audio + Charge RockStar allows users to simultaneously charge their iPhone and listen to music using 3.5 mm headphone jack devices.

This adapter plugs into the Lightning connector and supports data synching through the Lightning connector as well as microphone and remote control on the headphone jack.

"We're excited to offer yet another way for iPhone owners to simultaneously charge and listen to audio using the headphones that they know and love," says Marco Peters, VP, product management, Belkin. "We listened to consumers who wanted a reliable way to use their existing headphones, and we took learnings from last year's Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar to deliver what people asked for and more."
