BMW iPhone 5 Snap-In Adapter Cradle Now Available

Good news for iPhone 5 owners. The BMW iPhone snap-in adapter for the iPhone 5 is now available, ahead of the original estimated delivery frame of June 2013.

When Apple released the iPhone 5 in September of last year, with it came a change to its connector from the previous 30-pin to the new 8-pin 'Lightning' connector. This change meant that the newest iPhone would not work with BMW's past iPhone snap-in-adapters.

The new adapter fits the following BMW models with Combox: E8x 1 Series, E9x 3 Series, E6x 5 Series, F1x models, X1, F25 X3, E70 X5.

The part number for the new iPhone 5 snap-in adapter is: 84.21-2 338 568-01 and it currently retails for €399 euros in Europe.

Please note that the iPhone 5 media span-in adapter does not support video playback. It is also currently not available for order in the U.S.

Here is a photo of it installed in a E60 5 Series.

The silver tab in the middle says "EDITION" and the silver tab at the base says "MEDIA".
