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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
