Hallo everybody.

I would like to share my experience with the new iOS4 update.

I have bought an Kensington LiquidAUX 2 weeks before the new update arrives.
Everything works fine and like a charm. Now I have installed the iOS4 update and my
iphone is not getting charged anymore in the car. It seems to get charged. It looks like
the charger is connected. In the display you see that it is loading. But the phone is not getting charged.

Than I drive the the car of my girlfriend and the a different charger is not working too.
This one works before the update.

Apple... what have you done. Killed all the car charger ?

I now get an answer from Kensington that the problem really is the new firmware from apple
and they can not do something for me....

Here is the orginal text. In German.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage an Kensington.
Das Problem ist die neue iPhone Firmware, diese ist nicht kompatiebel mit dem Kensington Produkt.
Leider ist es nicht möglich das Kensington Produkt entsprechend anzupassen.
In diesem Fall können wir leider nichts für Sie tun.

So it really seems true that the most car chargers are incompatible with the phone now.


Do someone of you experience the same problem with Car Chargers??

Thanx and best wishes to all.

    I had purchased a LiquidAux in January 2009. When the OS3 updated came out my iPhone stopped working with it. Kensington would do nothing about it.

    The fact that it keeps happening to their accessories (at least the LiquidAux) has me wondering if there isn't some sort of vendetta that Apple has against Kensington.
