You can count me as grumbling. I still don't think that Apple has made the case for the superiority of the Lightning connector. Remember several years ago the many devices Apple promised would interface with their old 30-pin connector, such as sphygmomanometers and glucometers? Never happened. Now that we have the amazing Lightning, what wonders of connected data are available? Speaker docks. Yeah, that's exactly what this new connectors brings us: the same devices we had before, only more expensive. I bought an Apple Lightning to micro USB adapter last week so I'm now free to use the many charging cables I had already. Call me when Lightning gives us something that the non-Apple world doesn't already have. I don't know where you've been but there are indeed blood pressure cuffs and glucose meters available that interface with the dock connector of iOS devices.
