I don't know whether this is common knowledge but I found this while I was digging for something else. It's not really a phone thing but I know some of our members use Mac computers.

The headphone output of the MacBooks doubles as an optical output. You need this cable:

Plug it into your headphone output, then select Digital Out from Sound Preferences:

Output from the MacBook can be directed to any device which will accept TosLink.
