I would bet that when you first used iOS 6, the first thing you did was head over to the ‘Maps’ application and search for your home town. Annoyed that it wasn’t supported in Apple’s 3D flyover mode, you then searched for your nearest mapped city.

Make your old ‘universal’ iPhone dock Lightning compatible with this 3D printed dock

Much of the tech world was pretty darn annoyed when Apple announced the iPhone 5 with Lightning last year.
