Apple updated the 15-inch Retina MacBook today, but it also quietly added something new: an iPhone dock featuring a lightning connector.

There hasn’t been an official Apple dock available since the iPhone 6 was released. The new dock works with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, as well as the 5 and 5s.

The dock will set you back $39 and doesn’t include an extra lightning cable, but you can play your music while docked thanks to the 3.5mm jack onboard.
