Apple’s new Lightning dock connector is much smaller and narrower than the standard 30-pin connector. It can also be plugged in either orientation. And Apple claims it’s more durable than the older dock connector. Folks with a healthy supply of 30-pin connectors lying around can buy the $29 Lightning to 30-pin adapters. But Apple has cautioned that not all 30-pin devices will work with the new adapter. So buyers of a new iPhone, iPod Touch, or Nano may need to purchase even more accessories to use their existing devices. Apple in Europe has a typically same solution too: a free Lightning-to-Micro USB adapter for every iPhone 5 user.
