As we all know, lightning connector cables are backordered from Apple as are the adapters. On Monday they indicated 2-3 weeks for cables and 'ships in October' for the adapters. I ordered one of each.

Today I received notice that my lightning/USB cable has shipped, but the adapter continues to indicate October. So, cables seem to be getting less scarce and Apple now says 1-2 weeks availability. I'm just concerned that something happens to my only cable and only way to charge my iPhone 5.

That's my fear too. I had to go back to the house yesterday because I had forgotten to bring my cable out of the house. For that reason (and yes, I have posted this under different topics:rolleyes:) is that the adaptor should have come with the phone.

I can tell you the iPhone/adapter combo must have priority !
How do I know ?
I odered ahead of pre-order date! 2 cables and 1 adapter (I knew better then to wait)
Everything was prepping for shipping and to be here the 20th (1 day before launch)
Preorder date they canceled my adapter. Because I bet those phone adapter combinations were more important. If I knew that I'd added on in my phone cart. The cables came even a day early and I have really no need for the adapter so I canceld it.
If you are desperate check e-bay plenty of after market adapters there
