Belkin unveils first third-party Lightning accessories

Ever since Apple unveiled their new Lightning connector with the release of the iPhone 5, users have been waiting patiently (some more than others) for third-party Lightning accessories to make the rounds. However, after almost a month and a half since the Lightning connector’s public debut, they’re finally here. Belkin is the first official company to be signed off by Apple to make third-party Lightning accessories.

Today, Belkin announced two new accessories that utilize Apple’s new Lightning connector. The Charge + Sync Dock is an iPhone 5 dock that offers a foldaway auxiliary jack and a hidden cable channel that hides your Lightning cable and feeds it to the back of the dock. It also has a removable magnetic base and an audio-out port for headphones or speakers.

Belkin also announced an updated iPad while you’re on your way to work. It has a 4-foot long cable and the charger includes over-voltage protection. It’s compatible with all Apple devices that use the new Lightning connector.

Both of these accessories are available for pre-order right now for $29.99 each, and will begin shipping on November 15. However, these aren’t the only two Lightning accessories you’ll see from Belkin. The company has committed to releasing more Lightning accessories in the future, including several more later this year.
