The iPhone 3G has a few drawbacks when comparing it to the original iPhone – the biggest of which (for me anyway) is one that I just discovered tonight.
You can’t charge the device on an iPod Audio system. I have tried every one that I have in my house, including mStation, XtremeMac, and others – and when you connect them, you get a message that says “charging is not supported with this accessory”.
This i only with the iPhone 3G, however. Original iPhones with the iPhone 2.0 software update still work just fine.
So what’s going on here? What is it inside the new iPhone that makes this an impossible thing to do?
