Apple was reported to change the iPhone’s dock connector since February of this year, the leaked parts of iPhone 5 seems confirming it. iMore, which correctly giving him the iPad event date, and just given the iPhone event recently, gives new breaking that Apple is rolling out the smaller dock connector across its entire iOS line.
Rene Ritchie of iMore reports:
According to the site, the devices that would get the refresh would be the new iPhone 5, the the new iPod nano and iPod touch, the rumored 7-inch iPad mini, and perhaps an updated version of the current 9.7-inch iPad.
“iMore has learned that Apple intends to update their entire lineup of iOS device products to support the new miniaturized Dock connector, and to do it as early the rumored September 12 special event this fall. This would include the new iPhone 5, the new iPod nano and iPod touch, the rumored 7-inch iPad mini, and an updated version of the current 9.7-inch iPad…
…Apparently, Apple believes consistent Dock connectors across the line, and other improvements they’re able to make to the new iPad this point, are more important than sticking to yearly release schedules, with a 16 month gap between iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, and no substantive iPod touch updates for 23 months and counting.”
Earler, we have heard that Apple will offer dock adapter for new dock connecter, so I think there is nothing to worry about.
