1. Lightning to 30-pin adapter

RM 79.00 

The Lightning to 30-pin adapter is probably the most important accessory to have if you have an iPhone 5 device. The major problem that iPhone 5 owners face is that accessories meant for older iPhones are not compatible with the new device. This iPhone 5 accessory is available on the Apple store and other online stores in Malaysia, like Lazada and Lelong. If you want to keep all the accessories that you already have for older iPhone versions, then the Lightning 30-pin adaptor is a must-have for you.

This accessory supports analog audio out, syncing, and USB audio. However, it does not support iPod out. As a result, this does not allow you to control your iPhone 5 with the help of a car stereo. A .2m cable can be used with this 30-pin adaptor for most efficient usage of the accessory.
