Apple's Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter Begins Shipping




Apple has just begun notifying the first wave of customers who ordered the company's new Lightning to 30-pin Adapter that their orders are now shipping. MacRumors has received word from several readers located in Australia that their orders are now in transit, with one reader's shipping notification indicating that his shipment is due to be delivered on October 9.

Apple is offering two versions of the adapter, a $29 direct plug adapter and a $39 adapter with a short cable. The 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.

(Thanks, MudgeeMac and Daniel!)

What's so amazing about it? It's a simple concept to go from a Lighting port device to a 30-pin accessory.

OMG! OMG! OMG! Can I call UPS and have them keep it at the hub, so I can go pick it up early morning? Should I go to the UPS hub early in case there are other people already waiting there?

Lol. Just kidding. It's about time. This adapter should have been available on launch day. Oh well.

Can we track the flight our adapters are on? What factory and week number is your adapter? Will someone please post an unboxing video of our adapters? Are you guys standing in line at midnight or hoping to get an adapter earlier ordering from apple.com?

Hopefully these items can be posted through the door to hole adapter ('Letterbox'). The clever thing about Letterbox is that you can shove things through it in either orientation. More traditionally, Doorbell and Knocker can be used to gain the attention of the occupier of the delivery address, but Letterbox is a faster and more efficient delivery method.

Woo. Just as exciting as the thunderbolt to firewire adapter or the MagSafe 2 to MagSafe adapter.

It better be written by Aaron Sorkin and/or star Ashton Kutcher.

On second thoughts, why make a whole new movie?

I know your comment is in jest, but let's just hope the iPhones and iPods stay snugly in place with these adapters, when docked in iHomes, Zeppelins, etc. We don't need another 'controversy' stirred up by the anti-APPLE camp.

Now to wait for the reports that they are scratched with a purple tint!

On a side note I think my lightning cable is defective. No flashes of light or thunder comes from my cable. lol

For al the price complainers
This adapter contains a chip... so the 30 dollars is more than worth it...
It's not just a simpel rewiring box.

Nice. Good to know, I was worried the adapter would slow down my iPhone order since I ordered them in the same order. Now I don't have to worry.
