Dallas Fort Worth Buick GMC Dealer What The Release of the iPhone5 Will Mean For Cars

Today we had some big news in the technology world with the release of the iPhone5. Incidentally, by the time you read this, my post will be well know history, and probably totally obsolete…So, the new iPhone 5 came out today and amidst all of the hullabaloo, some automotive news came along with it.

With cars like Hyundai and Scion who have models hardwired with a 30 pin connector to their decks, or Audis and BMWs who have ingrained 30 pin cradles you are going to also get an adapter. That’s right, Apple has changed it’s charging system to their new Lightening connector and that means the above mentioned cars, and many others, will have to also purchase and adapter so you can marry your new iPhone5 to your car’s audio capabilities.

The adapter will cost $29 and the old 30 pin connector port seems to dwarf the new Lightening port.
