iPhone Accessories

Apple today made one of the final introductions for the iPhone in advance of its 6PM launch, introducing the accessories that will be available in shops and through the online Apple Store later today. Most notable are previously unannounced accessories: the Bluetooth Travel Cable (pictured right, $29) is meant for travelers who need to charge the Apple-made Bluetooth headset and iPhone at the same time, while the now confirmed Dual Dock ($49, left) adds the same headset slot to the company's desktop cradle. A TTY Adapter ($9) lets the deaf attach Teletype into the phone to communicate with others.

Owners of existing Universal Dock accessories for the iPod will also have a native fit for the device. The Universal Dock Adapter 3-Pack ($9) lets the iPhone work in Apple's own dock or most accessories. Most devices should work properly without triggering the wireless-free Airplane Mode; supporting speaker docks can even be used as speakerphones, Apple says. Users also have the option of manually overriding the alert at the risk of creating potential interference during calls.

The Bluetooth headset announced at Macworld in January is now rated at 5.5 hours of continuous talk with 72 hours of standby; it ships for a relatively high $129 but includes both the Dual Dock and the Bluetooth Travel Cable. Other announcements today include replacements for the iPhone's bundled Dock ($49), USB cable ($19), Stereo Headset ($29), and direct compatibility with the existing iPod-oriented USB Power Adapter ($29).
