Scotty Allen is back, and this time he managed to add a standard headphone jack (yes, the 3.5mm kind) to the iPhone 7, which supposedly didn’t come with a headphone jack for space-saving means. What Scotty achieves is amazing and his video is filled with lots of unique challenges and solutions, including prototyping multiple circuit boards, redesigning designs based on those prototypes, some surface-mount soldering, and visits to multiple markets and manufacturing facilities – awesome!
I love my iPhone, but it doesn’t have a headphone jack! So I decided to add my own. For real.

4 months, 7 custom circuit boards designs, 3 disassembled iPhones later, it works. It’s the first modern iPhone with a headphone jack – the only one like it in the world.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
