Hotels like the Holiday Inn on Rt. 9 in Bloomington put iHomes in each of their guest rooms back in 2007.
iHomes are basically docking stations for iPods and iPhones. They let you listen to music, listen to the radio or set your alarm.
The problem is the size of the new charging port on the iPhone 5.
It is much smaller than previous iPhones, which means it is no longer directly compatible with the iHome.
So, guests at the Holiday Inn, for example, cannot use the iHome if they are trying to get it to cooperate with their iPhone 5.
General Manager Michelle Irvin said she will have to go out and buy adapters for people to borrow.
"I think it's great we're moving forward, but it would be nice if they included those little adapters if they knew they were coming in the future," Irvin said.
She said no guests have complained so far, but she recognizes it is still early.
The iPhone 5 just became available to the public and has already sold millions.
Adapters are available through Apple for about $30.
