Apple has made the Lightning to Micro USB adapter available on its online store this afternoon for $19 in the United States. The adapter allows you to charge or connect your iPhone with any Micro USB cable, and considering how cheap the cables are, buying this adapter may not be such a bad idea. You can buy a 6-foot Micro USB cable for less than $2 giving you three more feet than Apple’s standard connector. Apple said the adapter ships in “1-3 days”. Seems perfect for the car, no?
The adapter was first available in the Europe after the iPhone 5 event as part of a standardization policy.
