New technology to fix the iPhone 7's biggest problem is on the horizon. The iLDock is a device that will remedy the number one complaint about the iPhone 7's lack of a phone jack. Its design makes it impossible to charge the phone and listen at the same time. This was perhaps the biggest disappointment with the otherwise great performing device, but the iLDock solves the problem quite effectively. It's not ready yet but prepare yourself because it's on the way and will soon be available for purchase.

The iLDock delivers a 3.5 mm headphone jack along with a lightning charging port so the iPhone 7 can be charged and used for listening to music at the same time. it is even available in a model that features two lightning ports and this model is called the iLDock Duo.

Flash cards up to 128 GB will be compatible with this device. The adapters are designed to be flush with the iPhone 7 for a more elegant appearance than other adapter brands.

He has eight years of electrical engineering experience under his belt, making iPhone related products. Matthew and Will Kao are also co-founders. Matthew is an expert in marketing and business development and Will Kao is an expert in supply chain and manufacturing. Will has kept the operation running on time within the established schedule.

Timeline and evolution of iLDock
It all began in January of 2016 with the inception of the concept. By March 2016, the design team had completed their contributions. By May, the team reached the sampling stage and by June 2016 they were at the tooling and adjusting phase of the project. The Kickstarter campaign was started in September 2016 with fundraising efforts and in October 2016, manufacturing commenced. It is slated for shipping in November 2016 and they are currently accepting donations from backers and taking pre-orders for the product.
Philosophy of the creators of the iLDock
The founders of this new start up realize that they are brand new and have a ways to go in establishing their brand and kicking off a successful launch. Although it is under the Apple corporation, these talented professionals have a large stake in its success. The fundraising site lets us know that they developed the devices in order to meet current customer demands for enhanced performance of the iPhone 7. Their goal was to come up with a reliable and viable solution that would provide solve the problems yet remain an inexpensive option that would also be aesthetically pleasing and come in matching color choices. One of their goals is to provide a product that offers an exceptional value for the consumers.
Where they're at in the fundraising process with Kickstarter
If this is a project that you're interested in backing, the campaign will continue through October 27, 2016. They currently have 4,379 backers with $92,456 pledged of $5,000 goal. They're doing amazingly well but still have all but a few of the money saving promotions posted. They offer a great deal for anyone who wants to make a pledge to back their efforts and to acquire the iLDock immediately upon availability. In essence, pledging is a way to help this new startup company out while being among the first to be privileged to try it out.
Through the special promotional, the company is offering one iLDock in the color of your choice for a $10 pledge. This reflects a 67% savings over the projected cost at launch. Pledges of $90 or more will get you 10 iLDocks which still reflects a significant savings. The estimated shipping date for these products is December of 2016 and they will be available for shipment to anywhere in the world.
The iLDock appears to be the brilliant invention of a new group of highly skilled technicians with innovative and creative ideas for problem solving. Their approach to solving common problems complained about with the iPhone 7 will be welcome news to many current users who like everything but the lack of a phone jack with this product. From all appearances, this handy new device will be the solution to a lot of problems for a lot of people. Our expectations are that the iLDock will be met with immediate and tremendous success when it hits the market just prior to the start of the new year.
