Belkin introduces 3.5mm audio cable with lightning connectivity


Belkin has released a 3.5mm to lightning cable. According to the company, this cable will allow the users to connect their iPhones to an audio player without any adapter. This means that the user can plug in their iPhone into their car stereo and play the music directly.

The lightning to 3.5mm cable will become a part of Belkin’s lightning based audio accessories section. The company, Belkin has previously released the “Lightning audio + charge Rockstar accessory back in 2016. This allowed the users to charge their iPhones while listening to the music using the lightning earpods. This accessory still needed a lightning to 3.5mm connector to use the conventional headphones.

With this cable, the phones can be connected to any device that has a 3.5mm jack. The cable converts digital signals to analogue signals to ensure high-resolution audio says, Belkin.

“The new cable outputs high-resolution audio by converting digital signals to analogue. It is available in multiple lengths, giving consumers the freedom to listen to music and other content at home or in the car.”

Apple ditched the headphone jack with the release of the iPhone 7 but they recently allowed the accessory makers in Apple’s Made-for-iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) licensing program to create new types of products as the company adds specs for a Lightning to 3.5mm output cable and USB-C ports.

Apart from Belkin,  Master & Dynamic also introduced a similar cable the previous month. The Master & Dynamic cable costs $69 as compared to Belkin’s  $29.99 and $34.99, for 3ft and 6ft cables respectively. The cable is available at the Belkin store and Apple stores will also sell it in the future.
