Got yourself an iPhone 5? Also got a metric f***-tonne of old iPhone docks? You’ll be wanting a Lightning adapter then. Thankfully, Apple has finally started shipping its little plastic adapters, but who needs a quick refresher course on the costs?
Apple’s two official adapters for the iPhone 5 and new iPod lineup aim to ease the problem of not having enough compatible charge points around the house.
The Lightning to 30-pin adapter will transform any existing iPod or iPhone charger into a Lightning port. That’ll set you back a rather annoying £25.
If you live with a bunch of Android or other smartphone owners, you could also buy an adapter to capitalise on that. Apple’s Lightning to Micro USB module will let you usurp and Android charger for your own gain. That’s a more manageable £15 from the Apple store.
All the adapters have reportedly now begun shipping, so any orders placed now shouldn’t face too much of a delay in getting to you.
