Apple has a rare change of heart over the licensing of its Lightning tech following the row over a popular Kickstarter project.
In an interesting tidbit, the owners of the Lightning trademark in Europe is motorcycle company Harley-Davidson.
The first iPhone 5 Lightning Cable has been cloned, meaning that a multitude of more affordable versions should flood the Internet soon.
Apple said that its Lightning-to-30-pin adapters would ship in October, and, right on time. Customers said they've received shipping details.
Third-party manufacturers in China are still attempting to clone Apple's new Lightning cable, but supplies are unlikely to hit before Christmas.
An iPhone 5 user discovered a 'mystery chip' inside the new Lightning cables, pointing to third-party adapters being useless without it.
