Upgrading to the iPhone 7 and lack wireless headphones? Say hello to your new reality. Belkin appears to be the first accessory maker with a Lightning dongle that lets you attach a pair of Lightning connector headphones and a charging cable at the same time. Sigh.

Available starting October 10 for $40, the adapter also works with Appleā€™s Lightning to 3.5-millimeter headphone adapter if you havenā€™t upgraded your headphones yet, and donā€™t want to use the ones Apple is bundling with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. And donā€™t think about halving your charging times by plugging two power adapters into this dongle at once, it only accepts a single power sourceā€”boo.
