Briefly: Apple holiday shipping, China Micro USB, Magnetyze
Thursday, December 13, 2012 @ 7:22pm

The online Apple store has posted a banner at the top of the page informing customers that they can "get it in time for the holidays with free 2-3 day shipping on everything in the store." The promotion is an annual benefit Apple provides to last minute online shoppers, and has been offered for the last six years.



Chinese iPhone 5 contain a free micro USB to Lightning adapter? With the iPhone 5 launch in China on Friday, the box will reportedly include a free Lightning-to-micro-USB adapter as part of the accessories included with the device. The adapter is also included with the European Union's iPhone 5 shipments, as a result of a European Commission ruling demanding that all smartphones sold be compatible with a micro USB cable. No equivalent doctrine exists in China, so presumably the adapter is included to simplify shipping and logistics of the phone to the country. The cable is not included in North American versions of the iPhone 5.
