    Now that these are shipping anyone receive theirs yet? Any exact delivery quotes for new orders?

    Im also curious to see if the new lightning adapter will enable older car kits (the ones with the 30 pin connector that were designed for older iPods that won't charge newer iPhones) to charge the iPhone 5. Since the lightning port dynamically assigns pins maybe the adapter will enable charging on these older car ports.

    Keep us posted!

    My Lightning Adapters (small rectangle) are also listed as shipped but the tracking is not active yet.

    I am also awaiting two of the 0.2m lightning adapter cables which still say processing.

    Actually, now that I have had some time I think I may return both of the rectangular adapters and buy 2 more of the 0.2 m adapter cables as I dont think the boxy rectangular plugs will fit into my iPhone 5's bumper opening. I'd hate to have to remove the bumper off just to use the adapter...

    Mine is coming on the 18th. I should have had it on launch day. It is industrial strength stupid to change the connector on your customers and not provide an adapter for all their iPeripherals at the same time.

    My theory is Apple knows the Adapter will not work with many legacy accessories.
    They waited until after the free return period was over for the initial phones sold

    Is there anywhere else to buy these other than the Apple Store right now? I know Target sells them, but has anyone been able to find them in store?
