Naturally, the 8-pin plug to get ripped apart and examined. It was found that the chip was not so secure and all was downhill from there as cheap third-party cables became available at a fraction of the cost of the "real" Lightning cable.
Apple is getting ready to brief “approved” third-party vendors at the MFi Technology Summit for purposes of making accessories that will work with the new iPhone, iPod and iPad. MFi means, "Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad," and that event begins November 7th in China. Despite that, Belkin is the first to arrive on the scene with a working car-charger for your iPhone 5 ($29.99) and a Charge & Sync Dock ($29.99). The Charge & Sync Dock uses your existing Lightning cable that came with your iPhone, so it is not so much a groundbreaking accessory, it is not a bad looking though.
Both are available for pre-order and will ship by November 15th. We placed some pictures of the dock below as well as a video about the car charger, because…they are just so complex.
