What about that new dock connector?
What Apple calls Lightning is a new proprietary connector that’s 80 percent smaller than the old 30-pin connectors. Its main feature: there’s no top or bottom, so you can plug it in either way. The older plugs needed to be oriented correctly.

Apple’s Lightning cable.

Of course, this change means your old cables and things like docks and third-party audio systems won’t work with your new phone (yeah, that’s annoying). To get around that, Apple’s got an adapter that you’ll have to buy (naturally), and it ain’t cheap. It’s $29 per adapter. Alternatively, Apple will sell a Lightning-to-USB cable for $19 and a Lightning-to-30-pin cable for $39. Expect cheaper third-party adapters to surface in the future, but for now your options are very limited.   Apple has found some additional income.  Is this fair?  Tell me what you think!
