You need the iPhone 8 + headphone adapter that plugs into the charge port- and to use that to plug into the AUX IN on the Sony. Do you not have that?

Don't have that. Will visit Best Buy.

You won't be able to use the USB type dock on the Sony in any way with the new iPhone, so the AUX Input is the only one that can be used. The iPhone uses the charge port to headphone adapter. You can get that at Best Buy, or I can also provide a link to where you can purchase that if you'd like?
