After selling the -to-Micro USB adapter only in the UK (as per the law across the pond), Apple has begun to sell them in the United States.

The $19 adapter does what its name implies: it adapts a micro USB cable so that it can be used on a Lightning-equipped iDevice. It’s incredibly simple, but it’s a lifesaver for a number of us who rely on the micro USB standard on a day-to-day basis: with an adapter, we only need to take one cable with us.

Apple’s website currently shows that the adapter is set to ship in 1-3 business days, although I’m sure that once this news breaks out, it’ll take a little longer.
