If You're European, Apple Now Lets You Charge Your iPhone via Micro USB

By Kwame Opam on at

Now that the iPhone 4S has been shown off to borderline middling interest, Apple is quietly rolling out this little dongle that allows you to charge your phone via Micro USB. Too bad it's only in Europe (for now?).

The move follows the European Union's pushing the Micro-USB format to become a standard. Rather than redesign the iPhone, they just made a workaround. You'll likely have to pray you won't lose it, but it's something. It'll be available Oct. 14th for £8. [9to5 Mac]
