Although the form factor and actual size are still unknown, TechCrunch has independently verified that Apple is working on adding a 19-pin port, replacing the current 30-pin port, to the new iPhone. It is a move that will surely send shocks through the iPhone accessory ecosystem.
The new port, partially shown in this Mobilefun post as well as in this video, is similar in size to the Thunderbolt port available on many MacBook devices but I’ve been told by three independent manufacturers that the pin-out will be different.
More proof that Apple is a douchebag company. Not going with the industry standard mini-USB and now dumping their own standard universal connector. They are going to cause tears for macfags as they’re going to have to throw out all their stereos, speakers, clock radios and get new ones or…. NOT UPGRADE. Might be time for these people to think different.
