iPhone 5 Update
On September 12, 2012 Apple has introduced the all-new iPhone 5 which sports the newest generation connector, the 'Lightning Connector' which is compatible with the iPhone 5, the 5th generation of iPod Touch and the 7th generation of iPod nano. The new connector has a 19-pin interface and a much narrower plug than the previous 30-pin connector used with the previous iPhones, iPods and iPads.
With the new interface Apple has made the announcement of a 'Lightning to 30-pin Adapter' which enables the accessories and devices with the 30-pin connector to be connected to the Apple devices bearing the 'Lightning Connector'. According to the statement made by Apple:
This adapter lets you connect devices with a Lightning connector to many of your 30-pin accessories.* Support for analog audio output, USB audio, as well as syncing and charging. Video output not supported.
*Some 30-pin accessories are not supported.
At Dension we are working hard to make our devices compatible with the newest iPhones and iPods and according to the first technical details and specifications we received we can say that most of our Gateway products will work flawlessly with the 'Lightning to 30-pin Adapter' and we are already working on Gateway iPhone/iPod cables sporting the 'Lightning Connector'. We are also in the development phase of a new Car Dock for iPhone 5 to support the new connector and the increased vertical size of the new device.
Please stay tuned to receive an official update on the ‘Lightning Connector’ in a few weeks (after the market launch of the iPhone 5).
