That was the plan but if this adapter is coming with the iPhone 5 including those in the US I'd rather save my money since i was planning on buying 3 cords.

That's some great news! Now to just wait and see if anyone in the US can confirm this. Tried to see myself but doesn't allot me to go to that step since the phone has already been pre-ordered on my line >.<

This makes me yearn for European consumer protection laws.

It doesn't seem to be UK or EU centric though.

No I'm not, I think you should read up on their consumer protection laws, and maybe ours as well if you don't think we have choices.

Man, I ordered mine at the same time as my phone and it says 2-3 weeks. I didn't want to order yesterday because I am cheap and didn't want to pay for shipping.

Then your i5 won't arrive until stock of the cords is available.

Did you order the adapter or the new USB cord? The adapters WERE delayed but the new USB cords were in stock and shipping

Someone was asking what the 1st iPhone 5 cock up by Apple would be, looks like we might have it:

Adaptor Gate: http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/14/a...tning-adapter/

Do, you get one, don't you get one, was it a mistake, will they have to backtrack due to complaints and give them out to those who need them?

In Japan, in the store, there was no information! They don't know ****, just that they have hundreds of people lining up for iPhone 5 preorders.

Can't tell if this is sarcasm or not, but the phone and cord will be shipping separately. The phone delivers Sept 21 and the cord will be here in the first half of October.

That's a pretty huge "typo"

It must be really difficult to mistakenly type out "Your iPhone includes a Lightening to 30-pin adapter for connecting 30-pin accessories to devices featuring the Lightening connector. Purchase this additional adapter to have a second adapter for your home or office"

Oh yeah, it is easy to make that typo, I just did it.

Its only a mistake of messing up one word .

"Your iPhone needs a Lightening to 30-pin adapter for connecting 30-pin accessories to devices featuring the Lightening connector. Purchase this additional adapter to have a second adapter for your home or office"

The problem is that it now says: Use this intelligent and ultra-compact adapter to connect your 30-pin accessories to devices featuring the Lightning connector.

Glad I have a screenshot. Will be demanding a free adapter. It's blatant misrepresentation of a sale and false advertising under UK consumer laws.
