Finally! Belkin Unveils World’s First Authorized Lightning Accessories For New iOS Devices

It’s about time!

Belkin has become the first accessory maker to get authorization from Apple to build third-party accessories for the Cupertino company’s new Lightning connector. It just announced a new lineup of Lightning accessories, which are compatible with Apple’s latest lineup of iOS devices, including the iPhone 5, the new iPod touch and iPod nano, the fourth-generation iPad, and the iPad mini.

Belkin’s has two new Lightning accessories available right now: One’s a Charge + Sync dock that will allow you to mount your devices on your desk. It features a built-in auxiliary jack, which can be folded away when not in use, and it’s priced at $29.99.

Belkin’s second accessory is a Lightning cable that plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter. It’s 4-foot long and outputs 2.1 amps/10 watts of power. It’s compatible with the iPad mini, iPhone 5, iPod nano, and the new iPod touch, and it also costs $29.99.

Belkin also insists it will rollout more Lightning accessories later this year, just in time for the holiday season. You can pre-order both of the companies new accessories today, and they’ll begin shipping in mid-November.
