Apple may ditch 30-pin dock connector on iPhone and other iOS devices

25 Feb Posted by in Blog | Comments

Apple may be abandoning its 30-pin dock connector in future generations of its iPhone and other iOS devices, according to iMore. Apple’s new connector will reportedly be smaller, freeing up space from more important components such as bigger batteries and cellular radios. The website reports that the Cupertino-based company won’t opt for either micro-USB or Thunderbolt ports to replace the 30-pin port, and it is unclear what type of connections Apple will use. Following the launch of Apple’s iCloud and Wi-Fi iTunes sync services, the traditional dock connector has become less important since iOS 5 launched. The report claims the new micro-dock will most likely debut in the iPhone 5, although it is even possible it could be featured in Apple’s next-generation iPad 3, which is set to launch next month.
