Listen to songs while charging with audio/charging splitter

With newer iPhones lacking a headphone jack there’s no way for users to hear to music with their wired headphones while their device is charging. This can change if you buy a small adapter that not only adds a headphone jack to your device but also let you put the charging cable in it at the same time. This is much better than the 3.5mm audio adapter that comes inside iPhone’s box, which only lets you plug in a wired 3.5mm headphone into your iPhone. You can buy an iPhone audio adapter and charging splitter ranging from $6-$15. The one linked below is from MeetLady and costs $11.

As soon as you plug in the card reader into your iPhone or iPad the Photos app opens and lets you import photos from it.
