One of the biggest features of the iPhone 7, which Apple announced in San Francisco on Wednesday, is its wireless abilities.
Since the iPhone 7 is the first iPhone to lack a traditional 3.5 mm headphone jack, Apple offers two alternatives: Buy a pair of wireless headphones (including the company’s new AirPods or wireless Beats), or buy a dongle that works with your current pair of wired headphones.
This is the dongle:

Apple says the dongle will be included with the iPhone 7, but you can buy one separately for $9. So yeah, this is the accessory you’ll need if you plan on using your old pair of headphones with Apple’s latest smartphone.
