Video Claims to Show Apple’s iPhone Lightning Audio Adapter

· · Cool Stuff Found

A video out of Vietnam claims to show Apple’s own Lighting to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter in action—the adapter that’s expected to ship with the iPhone 7 this fall. The new iPhone will reportedly ditch the familiar 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of audio over Lighting and audio over Bluetooth. Reports claim Apple will include a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter with the new iPhone model. It’s hard to say if this video shows a legit Apple adapter, or something from a third party manufacturer. Regardless, the look seems very Apple, so maybe we really are getting a glimpse of what’ll be in the box when the iPhone 7 hits store shelves.

Which side is better prepared for the future?

Pokémon GO: Can’t Catch More Pokémon? Clear Out Your List

· · Tips

Pokémon GO character list

My first experience playing Pokémon happened when I installed Pokémon GO on my iPhone, and it didn’t take long before I discovered “gotta catch ’em all” doesn’t mean you have to catch every one you see. I quickly hit my 250 Pokémon storage limit, mostly with Pidgeys, but also found you can offload as many as you like to make room for that Pikachu you really want. Read on to learn how.

Controlling your Nest smart thermostat just got bit more convenient thanks to an iPhone app update that adds Apple Watch support. You can check and adjust the room temperature from your wrist without having to fish your iPhone out of your pocket—something Ecobee users have been doing for a while. The app update also adds support for viewing multiple Nest cameras at the same time, and adds 1080p support for the Drocam Pro.
