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.
