Apple has also quietly released a
micro USB adapter, allowing you to charge the iPhone with any existing micro USB chargers.
This is to comply with the European norms, I suppose.
That's awfully good of them to do this rather than just fit a micro USB socket on the darn phone. I have pre-ordered a 4S but at £8, they're taking the mick! Nearly as ridiculous as what I had to pay for an ethernet adaptor. What is it with apple and their accessories?
It's almost like they built up an enormous Eco system around the dock connector and they don't want people using mini USB
I'm sure by the end of Steves 4 year plan there will be no holes/jacks/sockets on the iPhone whatsoever.
