    I know it's probably way too soon, but has anyone seen dust plugs for the new lightning dock connecter? Like these for the old 30-pin dock.

    I've grown so accustomed to using these on my iphone 4, I really want something similar for my iphone 5.

    You guys should buy Switcheasy products, they include the ports protected caps :)

    **Edit: ^beat me to it.

    I assume they'll be out soon. As of right now, I've only seen the caps that come with the Switch Easy Tones cases.

    I got the same idea, I did try micro usb plug and it fits OK. The only issue that the plug is very small and easily can be lost. For iphone 4 after loosing many plugs, I found IMHO a very easy and elegant solution. I cut plug from the cable ( it was very cheap) and used this as the dust protector. Since I am using lanyard, I just tied this plug to with a small ring.
    I want to replicate this idea for iPhone 5, when the cables will be cheap enough.

    I have these on my 4S because they came with my switcheasy colors case.

    Seriously, I love them. Not only does it seal better in case of any water or moisture, but it also keeps the ports super clean. Dont think I'll ever go without them.

    I'm afraid you'll have to go for the ones coming from China.
