I basically repurposed my old iPhone 3gs to be quasi permanent option on my iS.. It gets annoying when I forget to charge my phone the night before and end up unplugging 3gs and plugging iphone 5 using apple cable. It does charge it, I just cant access any of my tunes..
Do you know if there are actually hardware differences with later built 2011 models, or is it just newer software that allows that? It would be interesting to see if older 2011s can be reprogrammed to elimiate the need for the "Y" cable...
