    Right, there is one just for charging (USB and Micro USB Versions) and the CamKit - of course it only works with CamKit. As mentioned in first posting


    Well, my problem is not solved - still. Apple - your turn.

    Since I am running a music magazine and forum it should be worth to be a little bit more motivated to get iPhone 5 and iPodTouch users happy - I still have a Lightning CamKit - no use on "small" devices - 35€ wasted. ;(

    Moogulator, making a summary of all above: Connecting usb keyboard (music) into lightning usb female works only on iPads and does not on iPhone 5?

    Thi is my experience..... The Camera Connection kit has NEVER worked on the iPhone 4, (confirmed) and I'm pretty sure it does not work on the iPhone 5 (I don't have one). It only supports iPads.


    If you want a solution for dock based iPads, Lightning based iPads and iPhone 4, you can use an iRig MIDI (dock based) for all dock based devices (iPhone and iPad).


    Add the Lightning to 30 pin dock adapter to support iPad mini (confirmed) and iPhone 5 (not confirmed). The downside of the iRig MIDI is that it only provides serial MIDI and not MIDI over USB, so a USB music keyboard could not connect directly.


    If you need the USB and serial MIDI functionality, then the universal solution is the iConnect MIDI, which allows the connection of USB based MIDI devices like the Korg Nano Pad and the Akai LPK25.


    You could also use OSC, but that requires another computer.
