Those who just can't let go of their old Iphone dock might not be too pleased with the Lightning to 30-pin adapter's price tag though, as Apple is asking £25 for the tiny piece of plastic, which likely costs around £1 to make.
Still, the adaptor does have multiple uses. It can also be connected to one of the many old 30-pin charging cables you probably have cluttering up drawers.
If you've switched from an Android phone to the Iphone 5, Apple has also started selling a Lightning to microUSB adaptor, which it has priced at a slightly more reasonable £15.
While some, probably most, must be ticked off that Apple is asking £25 quid for a piece of plastic, the Iphone's new Lightning adapter does make for a skinnier handset, with the Iphone 5 measuring a mere 7.6mm thick.
That's not all that's new in the Iphone 5, as the latest Apple handset also comes with a larger 4in Retina display, IOS 6, an upgraded 8MP camera, Apple's A6 processor and a redesigned casing.
The Lightning to 30-pin adapter is available from Apple's online store.
Apple has updated its UK store to say that its Lightning adapter will be shipped within 2-3 weeks. µ
