Hang on to your old iGadgets because the latest versions with the "Lightening" connector are incompatible and non-convertable. And Apple designed the new interface intentionally to make it nearly impossible to connect anything that isn't licen$ed by them. Extending the Apple-kingdom "walled garden" to hardware as well. Apple already has $14.85 in the bank for every man, woman and child on the planet. I guess they are going for $20 or $25 each.
