    Anyone know if lightning cables are in stock at apple stores, or any other shops in London? Online ordering is suggesting 2-3 weeks which seems a bit daft for a cable.

    I picked one up at the Covent Garden Apple store last Friday. I'd call ahead to see if they have them, though. They seemed to be selling quite quickly.

    Alternatively, Carphone Warehouse seem to have them in stock with free delivery.

    Thanks. I saw on CPW online that they claim to have them in stock, however I'd quite like to just walk into a store and pick a couple up really

    All my local Apple Stores have them in stock so you should be able to get one faster in store.

    Purchased it using the Easy Pay system... felt like a shoplifter. :-s

    Just got a Despatched email for my CPW order, placed an hour ago for 2 x cables.

    Note you can ask for it to be delivered to your nearest CPW store at checkout, and the stores have no stock themselves.

    hah is there really no interaction with the staff when you use this Easy Pay thing?

    Ha,
    Exactly the same in the Trafford Centre a few hours ago.
    Thought someone was going to tap me on the back once I'd got out.
    Thay had loads of them in stock. Thought they were more than £15?
    I'm probably thinking about the adapter.

    Clone cables already available on ebay... about $10-12 USD each otherwise get 5 for 50.

    Yeah around £7 for the cables on eBay as a pre-order.

    I personally need a 3+ meter cable so I have to wait it seems!

    easy - get a long Micro-USB cable and buy the Micro-USB-Lightning adapter.

    For £15? I'd rather get a proper lightning cable off eBay for a fiver. £15 for an adaptor is just ridiculous.

    Looks like Carphone Warehouse has these in stock. Ordered three cables on Tuesday, dispatched Wednesday and received today :)
