Sometimes the world creates problems for no good reason. We don't know why this happens, all we do know is that we should do our best to solve that problem.
It's not your fault that you are an early adopter. You went out and got the new iPhone, you didn't expect the confrontation that ensued. There is no 3.5mm port. Apple didn't even give you an adapter to use your old headphones or earbuds.
It's okay, we are here to help.
We made the Changeling for you. The Changeling is a lightning to 3.5mm audio cable. Early adopters and shouldn't be punished, here's your reward.
