BMW iPhone 5 Snap-In Adapter is Coming... Next June

Apple recently released its iPhone 5 and with it came a change to its connector from the previous 30-pin to the new 8-pin 'Lightning' connector.

This change unfortunately means that the new iPhone will no longer work with BMW's current iPhone snap-in-adapters. So when can we expect the the new adapters for the iPhone 5 from BMW?

We've learned that BMW has already started work on the snap-in-adapters for the newest iPhone. 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 D/A converter circuitry to be integrated into the actual snap-in adapter, which will naturally take some time to develop, test, and release.

The estimated delivery time frame is approximately 7 months and it's anticipated to be ready in June 2013.

Thanks for the update. BMW is always slow to react to this stuff. I suspect that a BT software update for IOS6 won't be ready well into next year also.

Well, the iPhone iPod Out will require that the video D/A converter circuitry be integrated into the actual snap in so it is understandable that it will take some time to develop and be released.

I would expect a significant price increase as well.

Redesigned iPhones are released every other year.

Totally, agree.... It takes time to develop circuitry... In the F30 forums, they are up in arms!!! Like the world is going to end, if they can't have their adapter now!!!!
