iPhone 7 Case That Returns the Audio Jack Reaches Crowdfunding Goal

Actual Innovation, a product developer, launched its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to build something called ‘Fuze’. ‘Fuze’ is a custom casing for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus which is designed around bringing the 3.5mm audio jack back. That’s right – Jony took away the audio jack, and within days, there are already people dedicated to bringing it back.

What’s more surprising has been the response. The campaign launched on the 28th of September, and they’ve already exceeded their goal of US$50,000 with an extra US$11,580 in pocket and a whole month of funding left to go.

On top of adding an audio jack, Fuze still allows users to connect a lightning adapter, so iPhone 7 users will be able to charge their phone while listening to music, something older iPhones were fully capable of doing. It’s also got a built-in battery that can be charged together with the phone simultaneously through the same port.

The iPhone 7 version of the Fuze will have a 2,400 mAh battery while the iPhone 7 Plus version comes with a 3,600 mAh rated battery. Each one will retail for US$69, a hefty price, but it’ll mean your expensive ear/headphones can still be used on your new phone.
