From what I`ve read (but not experimented with myself) in the discussion that I posted a link to below:

*Basically Lightning to CCK cable and a USB-A to USb-B cable (kinda lanky imho).

or

*for older iphones 4/4S etc -old style 30pin CCK to a USB-A to USB-B cable.

Maybe style wise ok if you can mod a short A to B cable.

Yes, for iPhone 5/5c/5s. For iPhone 4/4s, use the leftmost adapter in this:

DISCLAIMER: I have only checked the iPhone 4 and 5c running iOS 7. Your mileage may vary. Eat with food. Discontinue use if a rash develops. Finally, Apple may change things at any time, so say no to automatic iOS updates. smily_headphones1.gif

Yes I forgot that the cable is out, and you don't need th Wolfson DAC from the 30 pin adapter for this.

No need for the CCK:

That white cable/adapter IS the lightning CCK (it has been split into two cables - one with a USB female, and the other with an SD reader).

You're right. I just looked up that adaptor. Sorry about the misinfo. I thought the CCK was a dongle.

Can I get iOS7 on my iPod 3G?
post #685 of 1308
How about iPod nano?
post #686 of 1308

No, only 4*, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, and iPod Touch 5th gen plus those newer iPads can run iOS 7.

More-recent iPod nanos MIGHT work with the iDevice version through the MFi Apple port (USB A) on the M8 and a standard charging/syncing-type cable (either 30-pin or Lightning depending on model).  Can anyone check?   I would do it if my M8 were in my hands.  I preordered in Feb. so I am still waiting. 

 

I really doubt if the iPod nano would work with the Lightning-to-USB Camera connector and the USB B port on the M8.  That is what people are talking about above.

My wifey still has an old iPod Nano (the first one w/ video - the little wide one) that I tried w/ the HiFi-M8 without issue!

I've been trying to get her into a new iPod for YRS - but she loves it!

That's encouraging...would be nice if someone could test the latest nano & confirm.
