iphone 5 - new connector

anyone a bit annoyed about this change?

it has put me off changing for now - just cant be faffed changing the car dock etc.

i heard a rumour that even with the adapter to convert it to the old style, not all devices will work, especially those that relied on 'ipod out' signals from the connector to display track titles. suspect this may therefore spell trouble for e.g. denison adaptors, but to be clear i dont know. still it creates uncertainty that is not welcome.

progress eh?!

i have a 2yr old iphone4 at the moment, might get a cheap 4s in due course instead of a 5.

Show stopper for me. When my iPhone 3GS eventually expires I'll try a Samsung.

Currently not worried so much about this as I've still got another year on my iPhone4 contract, however we'll see what the score is after that........

That's proper funny as they used a pic of a BMW interior to show something in use at the launch presentation.

I got a Samsung S3 on Friday and i'm loving it. Never been a massive Android fan but this latest version is much improved. I've also got used to the size of the phone now. Unless I place it next to a regular phone, then it just looks odd.

Moflow, if you went from an iphone 4...use your galaxy for a few weeks then try using an iphone 4, first thing I noticed was how small the screen was!

thanks for the link - looks like its been covered.

i thought i might be in a minority, but looks like several are irritated by this - interesting to see if it affects sales as i (and others) would have bought an iphone 5 without hestitation otherwise.

I've been holding off on the snap in adapter until I get my 5. For the time being Y cable and Bluetooth FTW!
