It's going to be the same exact adapter for the 5s anyway.

This long wait is not the fact of BMW but more of Apple. That s also why you cant found any device (Sound docks) from other brand than Apple yet.

The made in China cables only provide power but not data.

Just thinking out loud here. So I see that almost every premium/ish MY 2012-13 car has a 30-pin connector for iPod integration. It probably cost them thousands to work with Apple to develop those cables and use word "iPod" in their systems. Now Apple bends them over and fucks them raw with the new connector.

Boooo! I held off on getting a 4s snap in for 6 months since I was going to get the 5. Now another 6+ months. By that time, another new iphone will be announced.

It frees up your USB port for another device/phone and it's the only way that people who want video playback and PlugIn can get it. And the jury's out on whether there's any reception improvement through induction across the baseplate (the iPhone has never had an external antenna connector, so the car's antenna can't attach to the phone directly).

A little perspective here. Apple held onto the 30-pin connector for 9 years, across multiple generations of multiple product lines. I can't think of any other mobile device connector that's ever lasted that long, except maybe the headphone jack. Yes, the transition is somewhat painful, but it's not as if this happens all the time. And this is why female USB ports rather than male connectors are becoming the standard on more and more cars -- hey, like BMWs!

Honestly the cradle isn't worth it even if you have BMW Apps. I had one for my 4S and sold it later, never really having used it. PlugIn is kinda cool, but the native iDrive interface for iDevices is also really good and interoperates better with the split view. Video playback only works while parked and I don't really store videos on my phone anyway -- and if I did I certainly wouldn't sit in a parked car to watch them. Combine that with the irritation of having to remove my case to fit the phone in the cradle every time, and you have a ~$200 paperweight IMHO. Unless you need to free up your USB port for something else, I don't see the value.

Just go to amazon and buy a 30-pin to lightning adapter for like $15-20 and use the old one.

What a bunch of cry babies you are!!! Are you really saying that you can't live without the adapter for 7 months...

There are bigger problems in this world than not having an iPhone Adapter for your car.

PUT THINGS IN PROSPECTIVE PEOPLE!!!

Ohh... and BTW, you same people would be complaining if BMW had rushed the development of the adapter, and it didn't work well.

Do you have combox? What happens when you try the Apple white cable?

Interesting..
Only Combox (MY2011 in Europe, MY2011.5+ in the USA) allows the use of the white Apple USB cable.

Any and everything else requires the OEM "Y" iPod USB cable.

for a fact, my 2011 e90 (produced 6/2010) and my 2011 E70 (produced 9/2010) do not work without the Y cable; the apple white cable produces "unrecognized device" error on the iDrive. this was with the iphone 4, 4s or the new 5.

My brother-in-law has a 2011 e92 (production 3/2011) which does work just fine with the USB cable alone and I was told this production change was not universal with bmw until oct-nov 2011. (true?)

The iPhone snap-in adapter/cradle allows iPod Out. iPod Out is analog video output. Analog video output has been removed from the iPhone 5.

Therefore, new iPhone 5 snap-in adapter/cradle will have the video DAC built-in. That's where most of the release delay resides.

It seems most of you only read the thread title and not the actual reason why it is taking time for the development. It's not just a new plastic cradle they have to build, but also new circuitry for the connector. As stated in the first post:

" The changes however, are said to be quite complex (due to the new connector) and development will therefore require some months to complete. The changes are not as easy as one may think. For example, the iPhone/iPod Out function requires the video Digital/Analog converter circuitry to be integrated into the actual snap-in adapter, which will naturally take some time to develop, test, and release."
