The more I talk to people, I think that Apple may have alienated a segment of consumers. The people that love the iPhone and are techy are ok with the lightning connector and will be willing to buy the necessary cables & adapters. However, there are many people that are used to buying the $99 iPhone that are considering a move to the 5. These people couldn't care less about the speed of the phone and most don't care even about the screen size. What they care about is the need to either pitch all their cables and iHomes and by new ones or fiddle with adapter cables and adapters. All they see is the extra $$$ and they assume its going to be a TON because they don't understand how they could make it work. So they go with older tech. I truly believe that this could've been mostly resolved if Apple would've given each 5 owner an adapter along with the cable and charger cube. To me, that makes sense the first time you change a standard. With the 6...no adapters. Honestly, I think this standard change may be a bigger deal in the long run. I know, I know...current sales don't seem to be effected, but we're all early adapters for the most part. We understand how this works. I just wonder about long-term sales. The biggest thing I hear people around me talk about is the lightning connector.
