Apple starts shipping Lightning to 30-pin adapters

0. phoneArena posted on 08 Oct 2012, 05:11

Got yourself an iPhone 5? Got a truckload of accessories that use the old 30-pin connector instead of the new Lightning interface? Then you're probably among the folks who bought, or are planning to buy, a Lightning to 30-pin dock adapter from Apple. And in case you've ordered yours already, you can expect it to arrive relatively soon at your doorstep...

Surprised they haven't come and stated, if you love us, you'll buy more than one. The lightning connector is easily the biggest joke to me in the technology industry. It literally did nothing for the platform. How do you release a new connector that doesn't have USB compatibility, nor HDMI out at this point?

LMAO. You really can't even be pissed or whatever at apple at this point. It's the morons that support this crap, that's where the fault lies.

I hate to say it but Apple is really exhibiting coroporate greed here so unashamedly. I mean why would you release a product that forces your loyal fans to have to purchase a accessory to work with countless other accessories which the previous model worked perfectly with? It just seem as if you want to continuely rob your customers over and over again. Will iPhone6 come with a sstandard USB connector forcing all those who brought the lightning adapternto go out and buy another adapter so their accessories can work?
