Lightning to microUSB adapter now available for $19
In addition to the Lightning to 30-pin adapter, which is going for $29, Apple is now selling a Lightning to microUSB adapter for the more reasonable $19. Just plug it into your iDevice's Lightning port, and voila - it has a standard microUSB port! Magical? Hardly.

The Lightning to microUSB port will allow customers to use standard microUSB cables to charge their handsets or connect accessories. The devices that the adapter can be used with are all Apple devices that have a Lightning connector currently, which includes the iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad mini, iPod touch 5G and iPod nano 7G.

You can find Apple's Lightning to microUSB adapter here.

Not a bad price. But Apple docks doesnt even work for their iphone. How bout putting micro usb in your phones instead of your so called mini port? MICRO USB is a widley most useable charge port plus it charges faster.

It should be Free in EU according to law, cause here Phones should use micro USB standard charging port.

The law says they have to offer it, not that they have to give it away for free.

Why did they even make this? I thought Apple didn't care about micro USB. Wouldn't it be much easier to just use micro USB instead of a proprietary connector?

They have to offer it to be compliant with EU laws.

Sammy doesnt offer micro usb on oall thier products so why should apple my gnex doesnt charge all that much faster than a 4s and my gtab with its 30pin connector charges about the same as my gnex. The EU is not the end all be all of the law.
