Bottom Line: So one of the biggest complaints with regard to the iPhone 5 (which I did receive on Friday after all as an aside), was that the previous adaptors didn’t work with the 5 because of the smaller adapter size. The result was/is that the average 5 owner would purchase an additional $100 worth of accessories to replace the additional chargers, adaptors and dock stations that would no longer be functional. Well there is good news (sort of). If you buy the Lightning Adapter for the iPhone 5, you can still use all of your other accessories. You may still rightfully be a bit skeptical for having to buy an accessory to use your existing accessories but it’ll likely be cheaper then replacing all of them.
