“iPhone 7 owners, rejoice: the 3.5mm headphone jack lives on! Well, at least it does if you pick up the new Incipio OX iPhone case. A bumper that trades off an elongated lower lip on your phone for the ability to plug in standard headphones, it finally lets you charge and listen to some wired cans at the same time on Apple’s latest and greatest smartphone.”

“It’s 2017, and the iPhone 7 still has no headphone jack. In the intervening months, we’ve seen a variety of solutions from companies big and small to restore the missing jack, from dongles to battery cases that include a 3.5mm headphone port.”

“Now, Incipio, one of the biggest case manufacturers in the world, is getting in on the game at CES 2017 with its new OX case, which brings back the ability to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time. The OX case looks similar to most plastic iPhone 7 cases, but an added protrusion on the bottom similar to Apple’s official battery pack provides space for the extra ports. But instead of adding extra battery life, the OX offers a 3.5mm jack for music, along with a Lightning port for charging.”

“Ever since the iPhone 7 released last year without the headphone jack, companies have been dropping everything from dongles to cases to restore the once much-loved essential. At CES 2017, case manufacturer Incipio unveiled the OX case, which brings back the ability to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time with the integrated Lightning and 3.5mm auxiliary ports. Crafted with a sleek profile in mind and engineered with Incipio’s special PlextoniumTM Polycarbonate formula, the case provides enhanced protection for your phone.”

“Still crying yourself to sleep at night over the iPhone 7’s lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack? Wipe those tears away – CES 2017 bears wired audio fruit for iPhone fans, thanks to a clever new case.”

“Incipio’s iPhone 7 bumper case not only protects the edges of your smartphone, but also squeezes a headphone jack alongside its Lightning port in its elongated lip.”

“With it attached to your handset, you’ll be able to use a standard wired pair of headphones without resorting to Apple’s 3.5mm adapter.”

“If you’re still bummed out about the iPhone 7 ditching the headphone jack, Incipio has a new iPhone 7 case called the OX that includes its own audio jack for wired headphones. Incipio’s new OX case also features a Lightning port so you can charge your iPhone while using wired headphones which you can’t do with a standard iPhone 7.”

“Apple’s solution for using wired headphones with the iPhone 7 involves occupying the Lightning port with a 3.5mm audio adapter or Lightning headphones. For this reason, you can’t charge the iPhone 7 while using wired headphones out-of-the-box.”

“Incipio’s OX case brings back the functionality of having a dedicated audio jack and a separate Lightning port in the form of a protective case.”

On the Amazon side, sales of the Echo and Echo Dot smart speakers are through the roof — meaning more people than ever are on the lookout for nifty new Alexa-ready gadgets.”

Finally, the battery bank and wireless charging plate provide extra juice in the form of a 3000mAh battery pack or adds the ability to wirelessly charge your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.”

“Last year Ottberbox unveiled the Universe case system, which was a base case that had different accessories you could add to it.

“Apple’s Touch ID is a great way to protect your phone from prying eyes and prevented unwanted purchases. We have seen several cases in which children used the thumbprint of a sleeping parent to unlock the phone and go on a shopping spree. To that end, the folks at Incipio have the answer to your problems.” 

“The company has announced the Kiddy Lock Case which as you can see in the photo above, blocks off access to the home button in which it cannot be pressed. This means that if an app is launched, kids can’t exit it (unless they press the sleep/wake button) or make any in-app purchases that would require the use of Touch ID for verification.”

“Apart from the protection of the home button, the case itself is made from a tough, shock-absorbing material that will help prevent the phone from being damaged when dropped.”

The case also features a kickstand for video viewing and is made of a rugged, shock-absorbent material designed to protect the phone from drops when little hands can’t quite manage to hold on.

“Our phones are increasingly used as an entertainment device for children, and that can often lead to some embarrassing or costly slip-ups. If your kids are using your phone chances are good you don’t want them having free reign over the device. Sure, if they’re old enough they can probably get around most safeguards better than even you can, but for a few years at least, they’ll be at the mercy of whatever you place in front of them. The Incipio Kiddy Lock Case was announced today at CES 2017, and it offers parents a way to completely block access to the home button on their iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.”

“Their next product is an interesting, introducing the Kiddy Lock case. Which puts a sliding lock over the home button and makes sure you kids don’t screw up your phone.”

 “While this case does not fit everyone’s lifestyle, if you have small kids it might come in very handy. For instance, if you want to just give your child access to one game on your iPhone and don’t want them to exit out of it, this is a good solution. The sliding mechanism is not too complex, but not easy enough for kids to unlock. As it is a slide and secure latch, which needs to be opened.”
