Question: Can i use headphones with Vypagear Uni-Con?

Answer: Lightning headphones are supported via the extender cable.

Vypagear Uni-Con is designed for iPhone primarily, and as most mobile gamers require privacy, we supply a small (5cm) Lightning to Lightning pass-through extender cable, allowing you to connect your Lightning headphones, this cable can also be used for fast charging, please read the user manual for troubleshooting.

For Android Phones with USB-C ports you will need a right-angle USB-C adapter (not supplied) to use USB-C headphones and fast charging. (suggested products below)

Question: My headphones are connected to the 5cm lightning extension cable but there is no sound?

Answer: Due to how Apple handle Lightning port accessories, the headphones must be connected to the 5cm extension cable first , this is before you plug it into the Lightning port on your iPhone, as the system sees the cable as an accessory. Unplug the 5cm extension cable with headphones still connected to it from iPhone Lightning port and re-insert to detect your headphones.

Question: When i connect my Joy-Cons to my iPhone it shows as 2 controllers not 1.

Answer: iOS16 has a built in mode allowing you to use your Joy-Cons as either 2 separate mini controllers or 1 unified full controller.
