Now you see it, now you don't - the mysterious missing iPhone adapter...
The new iPhone 5 then. Everyone’s talking about it right now – even those of us that aren’t talking about it are, which is a pretty hardcore piece of Apple mind control if you think about it. Don’t think about it – that’s exactly what they want you to do.
But even though the thing doesn’t hit the streets for another week. there’s already some turmoil, about the new Lightning-to-Dock adapter. For a while over the past 24 hours, customers who ordered the phone direct from Apple’s site were told that an adapter (usually $30) would be chucked in for free. As shown here in this screengrab from Richard Gaywood.
Soon afterwards, that option disappeared, along with any mention of the phone coming bundled with the already-controversial adapter. Richard is waiting to see if his phone will be accompanied by the Lightning adapter – if it isn’t, he’s ready for WAR.
Meanwhile, here’s some Americans trying out what they think is the brand new, radically altered iPhone 5 in a vox pop on the Jimmy Kimmel show. The thing is, it’s a iPhone 4S that they’re all playing with. Polite, or just idiots?
