As you know, the iPhone 5, iPad 4, and iPad mini now all use the Lightning connector which is no longer compatible with these old 30-pin docks. That means if you upgraded your devices, these docks were rendered useless and most likely you either sold them or moved them to some dusty corner. Guess what? You can make them useful again thanks to a little gadget called ‘auris.’ If you need a device that can act as a bridge between your mobile phone and the speaker systems that you use, then you’ve come to the right place. One particular device that can aid us with this is called a bluetooth receiver, and it can help us get that crisp HD sound that we all yearn to hear when we listen to our favorite songs. Phones on their own certainly can’t give out the same quality of music without having a receiver be a part of the equation, that’s why purchasing them has been considered so important by every music enthusiast that wants to listen to their playlists in HD quality without having to deal with low-quality background noises.

The ‘auris’ is a a Bluetooth receiver that plugs into any 30-pin Apple dock. This turns the dock into a full wireless system that you can connect to with any Bluetooth enabled device. That means not only will your old dock work with new iOS devices, it will also work with Android devices and Windows Phone devices. The ‘suris’ features Bluetooth 4.0 with AptX coding and can store up to 8 paired devices. It even features a built in mic that will convert your speaker system into a speakerphone unit. Very cool.

It doesn’t seem to cost that much either at only $49.99 which is a pretty decent price to upgrade your current dock. You can find these now at, an online retailer specializing exclusively in successful Kickstarter products for Apple accessories.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – February 20, 2013-, an online retailer specializing exclusively in successful Kickstarter products for Apple accessories, is now stocked and shipping the elegant ‘auris,’ a Bluetooth- based music receiver.  Now, users can play, listen and control their favorite music through their existing dock from any iOS or Android device.

“The auris is a great solution to a problem many of us have encountered,” says Chris Johnson, Founder of  “Sometimes we don’t want to dock our phones when listening to music.  Or we have a really fantastic music dock that won’t work with the iPad or Android devices without long wires.  Well, the auris enhances the way we use our docks and listen to music.”

The auris connects with any Bluetooth-enabled device including the iPhone, iPad, and most Android smartphones offering superior sound.  The receiver stores up to eight paired devices.  That means all you need to do is simply walk within the 33-foot working wireless range, and the auris will automatically sync and begin streaming your music from the last paired device.

The auris boasts Bluetooth 4.0 with AptX coding for faster device pairing and low power consumption.  The AptX coding simply means that the auris offers hi-fi stereo quality with a wider dynamic range.  The auris comes with a built-in microphone which allows you to receive calls, and volume buttons give the user full control of the music playback.

With the auris, there’s no need to find time to charge the receiver.  Once inserted into the dock, it uses the power supply directly from the docking station.  Users can continuously stream their favorite tunes for a longer listening experience while freeing up their smartphone to text, email, check Facebook and more.  An AUX Out allows users to connect to the car stereo, amplifier, or headphones with the included AUX 3.5mm cable.

“The auris isn’t just limited to music,” adds Johnson.  “You can use it to immerse yourself in a game or movie, too.”
