Shortly after the official announcement of the new iPhone 5, Supra, the providers of Northern Nevada Regional MLS’ lockbox system, announced its eKEY iPhone Adaptor has yet to be confirmed fully functional with the popular smartphone.
iPhone 5’s Lightning connector is smaller than the previous 30-pin version, and the eKEY iPhone Adaptor will not plug directly into it, according to the Supra Support Team.
Apple has announced a possible solution; a 30-pin to Lightning adaptor. But the Supra team reported, to the NNRMLS, that it cannot confirm if the new Apple adaptor will operate correctly with the eKey until it is tested.
Supra said it plans to support the iPhone 5, but added, “Supra customers who wish to run the eKEY application on an iPhone 5 may want to consider delaying their purchase of the iPhone 5 until Supra’s testing is complete.”
The lockbox company also said before it confirms compatibility it will need to obtain technical information from Apple to determine if engineering changes to its products are required.
The Supra team added, “We are also exploring a FOB/adaptor design that may not require Apple’s Lightning adaptor, and we will provide more information on that as it becomes available.”
