From BGR:
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. 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.

Pronto works together with Peel Smart Remote app and Apple Watch, iPhone 6, 6plus, 6s, 6s plus, 5, 5c, 5s, 4s, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad 3rd, 4th gen, iPod touch and is compatible with iOS and select Android devices. The device is about the size of a salt shaker, and fits in even in the smallest of spaces. You can store it together with all of your other entertainment devices to keep your entertainment center clutter-free of boxes and cables. It’s also got an impressive battery life, with a lifetime up to one year.
