Sometimes the world creates problems for no good reason. No one knows why this happens, all Outdoor Tech knows is that they should do their best to solve that problem.
It's not your fault that you are an early adopter. You went out and got the new iPhone, you didn't expect the confrontation that ensued. There is no 3.5mm port. Apple didn't even give you an adapter to use your old headphones or earbuds.
It's okay, Outdoor Tech is here to help. They made the Changeling for you. Early adopters and shouldn't be punished, here's your reward.
