Apple to iPhone 5 buyers: No free 30-pin adapter for you

iPhone 5 buyers won’t be getting a Lightning to 30-pin adapter on the house after all.

Reports that the new phone would come with the adapter surfaced today after some of Apple ‘s online stores listed it as packaged with the iPhone 5.

The information on Apple ‘s U.K. iPhone 5 order page specifically said that “your phone includes a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter for connecting 30-pin accessories to devices featuring the Lightning connector.”

But it seems Apple committed a bit of a gaffe here. Customers who called or chatted with Apple reps about the adapter eventually learned that the information was wrong.

The company has since removed all references to the free adapter from the pages in question. An Apple sales rep confirmed to me by phone that the adapter is not included with the iPhone 5.
