你等的iPhone 7耳机适配器被Kickstarter叫停了

苹果公司移除iPhone 7和iPhone 7 Plus上的耳机插孔后,无数消费者担心要如何边充电边听音乐。一些企业家听到了他们的心声,一波众筹项目也由此诞生。

iLDOCK是第一个也是最受欢迎的一个项目,这个项目提供一个不起眼的小适配器,适配器有一个闪电接口和一个内置耳机插口。这个项目上线不到24小时就达成了5000美元的筹资目标,但就在众筹预计结束的几天前,这个项目被叫停了,每个都都收到了退款。

项目被暂停最开始受到人们的关注,是因为名为NikeSwish的网友在Reddit上分享了Kickstarter网站发给他的邮件。

我们一开始就对这个项目持高度怀疑态度,因为项目给出的设备价格极低(一个适配器10美元),而且发售日期非常近(2016年11月)。看来我们的怀疑不是没有理由。

这个项目结束的三天前,项目发起人更新了消息,庆祝项目成功融资20万美元,并宣布分批测试正在进行,已经开始准备发售适配器了。

目前尚不清楚iLDOCK究竟违反了Kickstarter网站的哪些规定,但如果iLDOCK就是你准备买的适配器,那么你可以开始看看别的选择了。我们很可能永远不会知道这个项目为什么被叫停,因为Kickstarter网站的政策是,对违规被叫停的项目不予评论。

After Apple made the "courageous" decision to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, countless customers began to wonder how they would charge their phones while listening to music. Several entrepreneurs heard their pleas, and thus a wave of Kickstarter projects were born.

iLDOCK was one of the first and most popular, promising a small, discreet dongle with a Lightning port and a headphone jack built in. The project smashed its $5,000 goal within 24 hours, but with just days left until funding was expected to come to a close, the project has been suspended and everyone has been refunded.

The suspension of the project was brought to our attention by a Reddit thread, where user NikeSwish shared the email he received from Kickstarter:

We were highly skeptical of the project to begin with, given the exceptionally low price of the device itself ($10 for a single dongle) and the aggressive release date (estimated delivery of November 2016), and it appears we had reason to be.

Three days before the end of the campaign, the creators provided an update, celebrating the fact that the project had reached $200,000 and announcing that small batch testing of the units had already begun in preparation for launch.

It's still unclear exactly which of the rules were broken by the iLDOCK team, but if this was the dongle you were planning to pick up for your iPhone 7, you might want to start looking elsewhere. We'll likely never know precisely why the campaign was suspended anyway, as Kickstarter has a policy not to offer comment on projects that are suspended after breaking the rules.
