Supra Update on iPhone 5 connector and iOS 6

Published: September 13, 2012

Dear Customer,
Apple has announced that the new iPhone 5 will be orderable in September. This new phone has an updated operating system called “iOS 6” and a different connector called “Lightning.” The Lightning connector is much smaller than Apple’s previous 30-pin connector. As a result, the current eKEY iPhone Adapter will not plug directly into the new iPhone 5.  Apple also announced it will release a 30 pin to Lightning adapter.

Supra will obtain an iPhone 5 and Lightning adapter from Apple as quickly as possible. Please be advised that, until we have tested our application and eKEY adapter with Apple’s products, we cannot confirm that they will operate correctly. Supra customers who wish to run the eKEY application on an iPhone 5 may want to consider delaying their purchase of the iPhone 5 until Supra’s testing is complete.

Supra plans to support the iPhone 5.  We will confirm compatibility as soon as we obtain technical information from Apple and will make engineering changes to our products if required. We are also exploring a fob/adapter design that may not require Apple’s Lightning adapter, and we will provide more information on that as it becomes available.

Thank you,

Supra Support Team
