iPhone 5 - Apple are you really that stupid. iPhone 5 will not work on your M3!

Simply put. The iPhone 5 will not work on your M3.

See.

Superficially, it's hitting all the right marks, but Lightning comes up short in a number of important areas. It is, of course, incompatible with the roughly 350 million billion iPhone and iPod accessories currently on the market -- a problem mostly rectified by a $30 adapter. But, that's not a perfect solution, as even that won't support iPod Out, the specification used in some cars (most notably BMW and Mini) to enable in-dash control of an iPod or iPhone.

What's wrong with Bluetooth audio!!! Plus it's almost 2013... we shouldn't have to rely on wired connections anymore!!!

I for one don't even listen to music on my iPhone anymore since I subscribe to Sirius.

I'm looking forward to iOS 6 release tomorrow so I can test out the ability for my iDrive to read out my text and email messages.

I didn't have time to read the article as I'm mobile but I don't see what the problem could be? Connect your iPhone via Bluetooth and voila you can stream all your music and make/receive calls. Or is this whole scene regarding the emails and texts etc coming up under the Office tab?

FYI my BlackBerry works perfectly with that feature, come on BlackBerry 10!!

Well, if you read the whole review, it literally says Apple knocked it out of the park. Is every aspect improved for everybody? Of course not. I'm sure there will be a solution, and the phone should still pair fine over Blutetooth. I'll have mine Friday and this is not a huge deal.

There's a long thread in the forum's "Connected Drive/Audio/Video/Electronics..." section, that's been ongoing for a few days about this.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=744437

Short summary: with the Lightning adapter, you will not get all of the video capabilities to the screen that you might have used previously. Otherwise, most will work fine.

We can probably expect a new BMW Media Adapter later; but I've found mine to be mostly useless anyhow, and will make my soon-to-be-old iPhone 4s a permanent 64GB music player that resides in that Media Adapter.


P.S. the iPhone's 30-pin connection is about 9 years old, and was created for the iPod. After about a decade, it makes sense to go from an analog connector to the 8-band digital connector of the new version.

You can find lots of accurate information regarding Apple stuff at:
www.tuaw.com usually days prior to the regular press reports.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

why do people use their iPhones for music anyways?

It's slow at loading...

Much faster to put music onto the HDD.

You got nothing important in your life to worry about than a phone that you come here and make a thread about it?

This is the same BS as the M3 vs 1M crap around here.

I wanted an iPhone 5 but blah still downfalls to me. Still no talk and surf at the same time on VZW, lose my unlimited data plan if i upgrade, and I would need all new accessories.

I work for VZ Biz so no switching carriers for me. Guess I'm sticking with my gnexus. :/

My mission is that I always use MOG through the cradle and I pay for MOG since its compatible through the interface. I'm wondering if once I receive the new phone, my 4 will still connect, or if there is a way to still have it connect until a new cradle comes out.

this is a pain for people who want all their stuff housed on and accessed from their iPhone "ecosystem". it's not just self-entitled whining. I am still going to upgrade and I guess I'll just have to hope for a solution in the future
