Apple has quietly brought in a micro-USB adapter into its online store, allowing iPhones to connect to a PC or charge from a Micro-USB connector.

We don’t expect the Apple Connector to be going anywhere soon though, and at £8 this adapter is unlikely to be included as standard going forward either.

The adapter is listed as compatible with all iPhone models, but doesn’t appear to work with the iPad.
