Earlier today, Apple introduced its all new ‘Lightning’ mini dock connector which will be featured in iPhone 5 and 4″ iPod touch for the first time, replacing the old 30-pin dock connector. As promised, Apple has now listed a Lightning to 30-pin adapter on its website for sale, that will plug into the new iPhone and iPod touch’s 8-pin port allowing compatibility with older 30-pin accessories.
Here’s how the Apple online store describes it:
This adapter lets you connect devices with a Lightning connector to many of your 30-pin accessories.
* Video and iPod Out not supported.
*Some 30-pin accessories are not supported.
The accessory is compatible with iPhone 5, new iPod touch and new iPod nano and is being sold online for $35.
