how do I charge the iphone 7 and use the aux adapter at the same time? did apple really not consider this?

Apple did this to minimize the openings for the purpose of waterproofing the iPhone 7. By reducing the number of openings thus helping the waterproofing of the phone. In order to charge your phone and access the headphone jack simultaneously you must purchase an aftermarket connector that contains a splitter. This connector allows you to charge and use the headphone jack at the same time.
