The new supersmall Lightning Dock Connector on the iPhone 5 and 2012 iPods is going to need one of these.
The new adapters are finally wending their way toward customers, according to reports from MacRumors readers.
Generic versions of Apple's new 30-pin adapter, which was officially unveiled last week along with the iPhone 5 and new iPods, are already showing up online.
Some Apple Store sites were listing the adapter as free with the new iPhone, but that information was wrong.
Who says you can't teach an old dock new tricks? This little dongle adds wireless capabilities, though some of them are glitchy.
At this price point, you should expect a range to separate itself from the competition more than the Electrolux EI30EF35JS does. Keep shopping.
This handy little gizmo plugs into most speaker docks (including those without iDevice connectors) to let you stream audio from any and every Bluetooth-enabled device.
An Apple spokesman reportedly tells The Verge the two new Lightning adapters will be available in the coming months.
They're small, but they're defining accessories for Apple's new iPhone and iPods. And if you're looking to buy them, be prepared to wait.
iPhone 5 owners in Europe can use existing Micro-USB cables to power and sync their phones via the new adapter.
