Apple’s Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter Begins Shipping
Today, MacRumors reports that Apple has sent out emails notifying a number of Australian customers that their Lightning to 30-pin Adapter orders had shipped. The orders are now in transit and are expected to be deliver on October 9th, which is almost four weeks after sales of the iPhone 5 went live in September.
Apple is selling two versions of the adapter, a $29 direct plug adapter and a $39 adapter with a short cable. These adapters allow users to connect their new Lightning-enabled devices such as the iPhone 5 and forthcoming iPod touch and iPod nano models to docks and other accessories designed for the previous 30-pin dock connector.
