With the 8 out and the X on its way, Apple is now making available a new dongle that allows you to plug in headphones — or an aux cord — and charge your iPhone simultaneously. This isn’t Apple’s product, however. They are simply selling the Belkin adapter.

Per The Verge, the audio quality while using the new dongle is similar to that of Apple’s adapter, but it is noticeably larger than the one that comes with your iPhone.

Also worthy of note, you cannot use the accessory as a headphone splitter, as the Lightning connector is solely for syncing and charging.

Regardless, you can visit Apple today to pick up the adapter for $35 USD.

Now watch Apple’s new add showcasing the iPhone 8’s Portrait Lighting effect.
