New iPhone dock connector  (Source:
The new iPhone will now have a 19-pin port instead of the 30-pin port

It looks like the new iPhone's dock connector has received a makeover from past versions, cutting the number of pins from 30 to 19.

New photos and videos indicate that the new iPhone will now have a 19-pin port instead of the 30-pin port that Apple devices have traditionally offered since the third generation iPod.

According to Tech Crunch, the new 19-pin port looks similar to Apple's Thunderbolt port seen on MacBooks, but manufacturers have told the web publication that the new iPhone's pin-out will be different from Thunderbolt's.

Lots of new iPhone rumors have been circulating lately, such as videos showing the unibody casing and leaked photos presenting the longer screen and metal backplates. These leaks confirmed a few new iPhone specs, such as the relocated headphone jack and metal antenna molded into the backplates.

However, some other specs remain unclear, such as the size of the SIM card. A video showing new iPhone specs revealed a smaller SIM card holder piece, but no measurements have been released.

Apple probably thinks this will mean they can sell another bunch of accessories, and while it is true the Tony Swash types will go for more Apple sodomy, I think it will have an opposite effect on the less die-hard iUsers.

I own an iPhone, and all I ever use that dock for is charging. Same thing with the vast majority of all the other iPhone users. It's not as if anyone who buys an iPhone is some kind of brainless zombie with a siphon in their wallet that Apple can tap at will you know. Couldn't care less about that dock connector or however many pins it has; I'm not buying anything for it anywy. Why should I?

Not that you haters would understand anyway.
