    So do I have this right:
    No lightning to USB cable comes with the iP5?

    and the backorder on the cables is 2-3 weeks?

    So we are destined to use bluetooth to xfer all of our data from our backups to the new iP5 until we buy a $20 cable or a $29 attachment piece?

    Please advise.

    They have to include one. How else are you supposed to charge it?


    Yep, it's included

    The included cable has lightning connector at one end, and USB at the other.
    Good for syncing and charging.

    It's the ones with lightning at one end and 30-pin connector at the other that are backordered.
    Those are for hooking up the new phone to older docking-type accessories.

    The Lightning cable is just like the old USB cable, just another shape at one edge.

    Actually its not. There are a lot of technical differences. Physically it just uses a smaller amount of pins in a smaller connection.
