Belkin has become the first third party manufacturer to launch “official” accessories equipped with Apple’s new Lightning docking port.
The company has just announced the Car Charger and Charge + Sync dock. The former is a basic in-car charger for an iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad Mini or iPod Touch; it comes with a 1.2m cable and costs £25. The Charge + Sync doc is designed for desktops and allows you to dock an iPhone 5; there’s an audio out for speakers or headphones and a jack that connects to your iPhone 5’s headphone socket for audio in.
Both accessories will be on sale mid-November, and Belkin says more Lightning-equipped gear is on the way.
