An image of another claimed spec sheet has surfaced on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo, indicating that the iPhone 7 could come with both a Lightning edition of Apple’s wired EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter in the box.

Blockhead makes your MacBook charging brick less annoying

Blockhead-AC-Adapter

I love my Mac, but honestly, I hate the AC adapter. The ‘wall wart,’ as I like to call it, sticks out so far from the wall that it can be incredibly inconvenient for plugging in behind couches and in other tight spaces.

Blockhead, which was only just recently announced, eliminates the annoying protrusion of Apple’s AC adapter and is now available from Ten One Design.

Now that the Blockhead is available for purchase, we’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on one. In this review, we’ll walk you through its design and how it looks…. Read the rest of this post here

Apple invents ‘universal magnetic adapter’ to bring MagSafe to everything w/ a single port

Yesterday we detailed an Apple patent showing work on a stackable Smart Connector plug of sorts. Today we get a look at a similar invention aimed at making the I/O on future devices more versatile with Apple’s invention of a “Universal Magnetic Adapter” that could allow for more future-proof devices using only a single port.

It reduces between your charger and the wall socket from 3.8 inches to just 1.2 inches. By turning your MacBook’s adapter sideways, Blockhead also brings its center of mass closer to the wall, resulting in a smaller footprint and less tension on the plug.

“At just over an inch thick, blockhead is the thinnest possible way to charge your MacBook,” says One Design. “Even the standard cord needs twice as much room.”… Read the rest of this post here
