The Elevation Dock for iPhone uses a 30-pin connector, so it is not compatible with the iPhone 5. That with a little creativity, the dock still a Lightning jack can give proved Oliver Nelson recently discovered that The Next Web . He removed the 30-pin cable from the Elevation Dock and filed the output on the dock to make sure that there is a Lightning cable is tight fit.
Nelson later filed the exterior of the Lightning-connection of the cable so that it easier to connect and remove. The result is snug enough, giving you the Elevation Dock well with the iPhone 5 may be used. However, the iPhone 5 according to Nelson slightly higher than wanted.
Nelson’s successful tinkering is probably good news for all Elevation Dock owners who consider doing the same. There are currently quite a few in circulation: the Kickstarter project for the dock early this year collected nearly $ 1.5 million in. This was for a while one of the most successful projects on Kickstarter. 12,521 people money stakes in the project.
The adjustment made by Nelson highlights a larger issue: many old iPhone docks work not just with the iPhone 5. You can use a adapter to buy the Lightning port to connect a 30-pin connector, but docks like the Elevation Dock is not fixing this much: these are designed to keep your iPhone close hold on to, something that fails to a thick adapter between the two.
