Most of the time, yes. There are many many different designs, although not all of them good.

It's all good, my friend... no offense taken. I do see your point though about the humor of having an older device as a workaround. Apple should have given more thought about keeping the "iPod out" functionality.

So I spoke with FedEx and they said that the "typical" move for their delivery team is to leave packages on doorsteps if they feel that the item is safe. So it's really a judgement call on the delivery guy. That said, the FedEx person also told me that many FedEx groups are NOT leaving them on doorsteps even if they feel it's safe per a suggestion from Apple that this not be done.

Apparently Apple is worried that scumbags are going to be driving through densely populated cities looking for brick sized boxes on doorsteps... can't say I blame them given the roughly $1000 these phones are fetching on eBay.

Regardless, you CAN'T have FedEx redirect the delivery to a local FedEx Kinkos until AFTER their first delivery attempt. So, if you come home tonight to a "sorry we missed you" tag, you can call FedEx and have them just send it to a local 24/7 Kinkos/FedEx outfit so that you don't have to spend all day tomorrow waiting at home for your newest gizmo.

Sorry I missed your question here earlier. From that same PC Mag article I linked to you all earlier, here are the audio options that I understood from that article:

1) To get your iPhone 5 audio music to work with existing accessories you may currently own (i.e. speakers, iHome, etc.), you will need to buy one of Apple's 2 adapters (i.e. lightning to 30-pin adapter, the more expensive of which comes with the 7.8 inch wire to fit your adapter into an accessory with a tighter docking port) or wait for the cheaper 3rd party adapters to come out.

2) If you don't want the adapters then you'll need to buy lightning compatible accessories though it's still early and not a whole lot of audio accessories are currently available.

3) Bluetooth audio accessories are always a viable option.

I have an easier option for you, Chase. I just had a FedEx shipment arrive at my house about a week ago. I missed the 1st delivery attempt and simply had to sign the delivery attempt notice they left me giving them my authorization to leave the package on my doorstep, stick it back on my door, and the FedEx guy left the shipment on my doorstep the next day. No need to call FedEx at all.

Definitely not... most of these 3rd party folks simply copy the functionality of the genuine apple products so I'd bet that the 3rd party adapters would behave identical to their Apple-branded counterparts.

You do raise an interesting point... it would be great if a 3rd party company could improve on the lightning adapter's design to allow "iPod out" if that's even possible to do.

Anytime, my friend... happy to help! I have plans for sunday already and my saturdays are now devoted to me coaching my daughter at her soccer games. You'll have to let me know how the import alliance meet goes (I'm assuming you're going?)

I think it's more a function of apple not designing the port with that capability more so than them leaving it out of the adapter. They wanted to save space so they removed what they believed to be extraneous functions.

So anyone know when I will be able to walk in a store and buy one?

Obviously wasn't waiting in line today, was just curious as to when stores will be restocked.
