There are some things that Apple will never add to its iPhones, and the first example that comes to everyone’s mind is a microSD card slot (though you can add one yourself with a nifty adapter like this one). Another thing we’d love to see on an iPhone is an IR blaster, which would allow the iPhone to be used as a universal remote. The odds of Apple ever adding one are slim, but that’s why the Pronto Smart Universal Remote Control exists. It connects to your iPhone and lets you control just about anything in your house that uses a remote.

Here’s what you need to know from the product page:
