    Since people are already getting these in the mail when can we expect them to show up in brick and mortar stores?

    Mine were delivered by UPS on Tuesday morning, 10/16. You should call an Apple Store to ask about availability. They've always been very quick to help me when I've called about items. :)

    Thanks for the reply. I'm going to give my local store a call in the morning.

    Popped into the London Regent Street store on my way past on Monday night, just on the off-chance they had any stock and they had plenty of both the 0.2m cable version and the non-cabled adapter.

    That is awesome, but you forgot to mention which store you purchased it in.

    I got mine a few days ago, and I was very happy to see it is small enough to not cover the headphone slot!

    I'm sorry...apple online. My local Apple Store does have them but they said they disappear quickly. They are getting shipments a few times a week.

    Apple isn't perfect but do you really think they would cover up the headphone slot??

    So you posted that you "got mine" in a post asking specifically about brick and mortar stores when you got it online???

    Ok.

    And no Apple Store has gotten a single one yet.
    If they did, it would be mentioned on here already.
    Everyone who has gotten one has bought them from Apple online.

    ----------

    What store did you get it from? We are dying to hear which store actually has stock!

    Thanks.

    Called all the local Apple stores near me (3 of them in Orlando, FL) and EVERY SINGLE ONE said "we haven't gotten any in stock and they're not released until Oct 31st".

    I was actually shocked at their response. Why is this so difficult?

    I ordered mine a couple weeks ago

    Considering how large the 30 pin plug is, it could have easily covered it. They made the adapter very small. it is basically the size of the plug.

    I had chicken for lunch today.

    I've looked in Apple and Best Buy stores and neither seem to be stocking them yet.

    Walked into the Apple store on Boylston St in Boston today and they have plenty of the lightning to 30-pin adaptors (0.2m)

    I just saw the Thread Title and posted...
    The Carlsbad Apple Store has BOTH Lightning to 30 pin adaptors IN STOCK!, so your ridiculous statement above is factually WRONG!
    You're kind of a Dick, but of course, you knew that already...

    Well, I'll happily be called that if I can steer the thread into it's intended purpose, which is exactly what happened.

    Sorry if I hurt some feelings.

    Just tired to see every lightning to 30 thread turn into "I got mine" from online or "I got one at this store" when they think we are talking about the USB cable.

    Glad to finally hear that Apple Stores are getting stock.

    The lightning connector specification wasn't posted to the MFi portal for third-parties until immediately after the iPhone 5 announcement. It still takes time to design and manufacture products.

    There may be some available from a guy making them in his garage, but manufacturers just haven't had the time yet.

    Good to hear that some Applestores are getting them. I went to my local store yesterday and they had not seen them yet. The "genius" was even joking about selling them on the black market (he was definitely joking). So hopefully next time I go I can see them!
