The adapter hardware plugs into the automobile's 12V DC power jack (previously known as the "cigarette lighter" if you're older than Taylor). Snap in your iPhone and fire up the free app and you're ready to take advantage of your existing satellite radio subscription.

Release of Sirius XM iPhone App Verified

Screenshots of the long-awaited Sirius XM iPhone app have surfaced in a shareholder meeting presentation. The title of the slide is "Launching Apple iPhone/iPod Touch and Smart Phone Applications," indicating that a release is on its way for multiple platforms.

The application follows Apple's rejection over two months ago of the uSirius StarPlayr. The same streaming Sirius XM radio stations available to subscribers on the web will be available on the iPhone.

The iPhone application is expected to price between $12.95 and $19.95. Users must have a current subscription to satellite radio, and can expect to pay an additional $2.99 per month for online stream access starting in March.
