New iPhone connector doing the business.
iPhone 5 fever shows little sign of letting up. After the queues and the 5m weekend sales, punters are now piling into stores to buy accessorises for their cherished new devices.
UK retailer Carphone Warehouse says it's selling 17 items every minute.
These include cases and protectors, but there must surely be a portion of users who are buying kit to replace old items that don't work with the new iPhone 5 connector.
Another triumph for in-built obsolescence.
Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at Carphone Warehouse, said: “The iPhone 5 has given Carphone Warehouse the biggest single launch we’ve seen for accessories. We anticipated that demand would be high, which is why we’ve ensured that we had the widest range of iPhone 5 accessories available on the high street at launch."
