Read on for some additional information related to iPhone, including accessory compatibility, gifting, recycling, checking order status, and returns and refunds
While there are thousands of accessories that have been designed specifically for iPod, these are not all fully compatible with iPhone yet. This is because mobile phones can cause audio interference with some accessories. Apple has created special iPhone compatibility requirements for accessory manufacturers. Products that are engineered and certified to be compatible with iPhone will carry a "Works with iPhone" logo on their package.
It is possible, however, to use many existing iPod accessories that have not yet been certified to work with iPhone. When you connect iPhone to one of these accessories, iPhone will notify you that the accessory was not made to work with iPhone. You will be presented with an option to go into Airplane Mode, which will turn off the communication ability of iPhone while it is connected to that accessory. This means that you will avoid any potential audio interference, but you will not be able to make or receive calls. If you choose not to enter Airplane Mode, you will still be able to make and receive calls, but you may experience some audio interference.
