3. iPhone Lightning Dock

Lightning Dock

Unlike the former methods, this is not software, but a device that could allow you to charge iPhone 7 while listening to music. It is an Apple product, which is available on the market now. And it could charge not only iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, but also previous iPhones.

It has a base, and at the back of the base, there is a headphone jack. To use it, just put the phone on the dock and power it up to charge the phone. Insert the headset to the slot, and you can listen to the music.

However, this accessory is not portable, so you have to stay beside your phone if you want to listen to music while charging iPhone 7.

4. AirPods

Apple AirPods

Another news we’ve learned from last year’s Apple Event is that the company released AirPods. They are Bluetooth earphones which can connect automatically once you put them in your ears and disconnect when you take them out of the ears. Also, you can use it to talk with Siri. And AirPods could provide you with an extraordinary audio experience. However, it needs charging. So you need to ensure that your earphones have enough power when you charge the mobile.

All these solutions perform excellently in listening to music while charging iPhone 7, but they also have some shortcomings. ApowerMirror and AirMore play the music with the help of PC. And the latter could not detect iTunes music. But they have many other features which may be helpful in your work and life. iPhone Lightning Dock and AirPods work independently, but cost a little bit more and have a few functions. So, you need to think thoroughly about your demands before making a choice.
