Weeks later, Apple is shipping its expensive 30-pin Lightning adapters
Apple announced the iPhone early last month
with its new 8-pin Lightning dock connector, it seemed like a no-brainer that Apple would have a hefty supply of
Lightning to 30-pin Adapters
on hand to appease the masses. After all, Apple's decision to ditch its 9-year old 30-pin dock connector meant that customers wouldn't be able to use their existing accessories without an adapter on the iPhone 5.
Inexplicably, Apple was unable to deliver the adapters at launch even though the decision to use Lightning surely didn’t occur overnight. But nearly four weeks after the iPhone 5's release, Apple is just now getting around to shipping the adapters to customers.
reports that a few Australian customers have received shipping notifications and an estimated delivery date of October 9 for the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
Apple's standard Lightning to 30-pin Adapter costs $29. Apple is also charging $10 more for a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter that includes an 8" cable if you need some extra length.

This is probably not the case. The old connectors are trash. I've had the plastic fall off two of them, and then the top bit starts pulling off. It's making holding out till I can decide between android or WP8 quite annoying. I'm not considering iOS after 6 served only to hurt my user experience.
