ATTN New iPhone 5, iPod Touch, and iPod Nano Users: This one’s a biggie…
We were curious to see how our dockBoss+ Female USB cable would behave with the new Lightning connector. So, upon receipt of our iPhone 5 yesterday (yup, we wait just like all of you), we hooked it up to a few speaker docks and made quite the discovery: When used with the new Lightning-To-USB cable, the dockBoss+ Female cable allows you to not only charge your iDevice, but also play analog AND digital audio! (See the video above for a visual demo)
Here’s why that’s so huge: The obvious main benefit here is that this allows you to connect your new iPhone or iPod devices to the huge variety of old 30-pin speaker docks and systems currently on the market. If you have a system you love already, or just want to grab a new one on-the-cheap, you won’t have to drop hundreds of dollars when the new Lightning-compatible docking stations come out. There are tons of killer docking stations that have been released over the years, and now your new iPod and iPhone devices can enjoy them just like the old ones did.
So what does all this mean: Basically, if you have a Lightning-To-USB cable (which comes with all new Lightning-compatible iDevices like the iPhone 5), then our dockBoss+ female cable, in combination with a simple audio patch cable, will give you the capability to charge and play audio through ANY 30-pin iPod docking station or system, regardless if it requires digital or analog audio signals!
So if you were hoping to be able to charge and play audio from your new iPhone 5, iPod Touch, or Nano through your favorite old iPod speaker dock or system, we can help! We’ve just put a package together called the dockBoss+ iPhone 5 Kit, which includes a dockBoss+ female cable and an Audio Patch Cable, so you’ll be ready in any situation. And the best part is, it’s available RIGHT NOW! Let us help you get the most out of your new iDevices and your old iPod audio systems!
