Is there a date for the Lightning-to-30pin adapter beyond "October?"

    Is "October" the only hint at availability they've given for the Lightning adapter? How in the hell did they not have this ready for launch?

    Long story short, I'm waiting on selling my 4 / buying a 5 until I hear if the adapter works with some certain accessories, so I hope they get this damn thing out soon.

    Nope, apple plays things close to the vest and they're saying October so we have nothing more to go on.

    For obvious reasons it would be nice to see these sooner rather than later.

    Why Apple doesn't have them ready now, is just another example of their casual, rather cavalier way of doing business.

    I ordered a cable (not the adapter) and it originally said October. Got notified that FedEx delivered it this afternoon.

    Sure would have been nice (and logical) if they had had the adapters ready for launch. I can't use my iPhone 5 in my car right now, I have to keep using my 4S until it arrives. Two phones to take with me now. Weak.

    That's good, What time did you pick yours up?

    When I got my iPhone 5 at that same store last Friday, they were out of Lightning adapters and didn't know when they'd have more. The option to "pick up in store" is still grayed out.

    I'd say they are pretty good about having accessories ready with new product launches. I'd also bet they want the real thing out there before the knockoffs show up.

    Guy from the Apple store said it'd most likely be the first week of October. Hopefully that winds up being the case.

    If the "July" Thunderbolt Gigabit Ethernet adapter is any indication, orders will ship out around 11:59pm Pacific time on October 31.
