Apple Begins Shipping Lightning To 30-Pin Adapter; May Arrive Tomorrow

If you’ve pre-ordered Apple’s new Lightning to 30-pin dock connector then you should soon get a shipment notification for it as MacRumors reports that Apple has started notifying customers that their orders are now shipping.

Apple’s iPhone 5, 5th generation iPod touch and 7th generation iPod nano that were unveiled at the media event in September came with a new dock connector dubbed Lightning, which replaced the 30-pin dock connector that was first launched in 2003.

The Lightning to 30-pin adapters allows users to connect their iPhone 5, 5th generation iPod touch and 7th generation iPod nano to 30-pin accessories. The Lightning to 30-pin dock connector for $29 and Lightning to 30-pin dock connector (0.2m cable) for $39.

Apple had also started taking pre-orders for the Lightning to 30-pin adapters after the media event with shipping estimates in October.

MacRumors has received word from several readers located in Australia that their orders are now in transit, with one reader’s shipping notification indicating that his shipment is due to be delivered on October 9. 

Apple’s website still says shipping estimates for the new Lightning adapters is October, so we’re assuming that we will more accurate delivery times once Apple has shipped the pre-orders.

Let us know if there has been any change in the order status of your Lightning to 30-pin adapter.

    My lightening converter I ordered on the 13th Oct will arrive today. The one ordered on the 14th hasn’t been dispatched.

      Received it today. I got a second one (30 Pin to Lightening) I ordered on the 14th coming tomorrow.

      My 0.2 converters also shipped just today. So others should come soon.

    Should be able to get this adapter for less than $5 elsewhere outside of Apple. Crazy how much they try to squeeze out of customers.
