If you’ve been looking for third-party Lightning adapters, they’ve begun to arrive in Apple Store retail locations.

Per The Mac Observer, which so far, only car chargers are available, other compatible accessories are likely coming soon.

Lightning-compatible accessories with Apple’s official approval have been slow coming because the company has apparently taken its time ramping up its review process. With companies finally getting the green light, customers should start seeing more Lightning devices on store shelves in the coming weeks.

Several manufacturers exhibiting at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week stated that they have Lightning accessories ready to go, but are currently waiting on Apple to complete its licensing approval process.

If you’ve seen third-party Lightning adapters at your local Apple Store location, please let us know in the comments.
