iPhone 5: Audio Accessories Compatible; Some Require Adapters [IK, Line 6 Official Word]

Owners of the new iPhone 5 and updated iPod touch might have noticed one big change in their hardware, and it isn’t the extra screen real estate or thinner design.  Apple has finally done away with the pesky 30-pin connector that was known get gather dust in the wrong areas and being jammed in the wrong way.


Their new port, known as the Lightning port, is a smaller connection which looks easier to connect but of course, will offer compatibility issues in terms of backwards compatibility.  To IK Multimedia, this is old news.  In anticipation for the change, they have made sure that all of their iRig devices will be compatible without any additional hardware or software changes.
