Apple’s new iPhone will bid farewell to the standard 30-pin connector that the company currently uses for iPods, iPhones and iPads and will instead sport a new 19-pin connector on the bottom. Techcrunch along with MobileFun have confirmed this rumor and mention that the 19-pin connector already exists but the form factor and actual size is still unknown. This would mean that all current iPhone accessories including dock connectors and charges would instantly become useless and the entire Apple accessory market will be shaken.
Here is a video that shows a glimpse of how the connector could look like –
Three independent manufactures have confirmed to Techcrunch that 19-pin is in the works. Sad or exciting?
