New iPhone dock connector  (Source: techcrunch.com)
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.

Tony, you don't need to endorse Apple at every opportunity that arises. The last paragraph alone would have done just fine.

I like to bring real world evidence to bear whenever possible otherwise people just spin off into weird parallel universe type discourses and drift ever further from reality into a wish fulfilment dream world.

I too like to day dream but I try to remember that they are day dreams and not reality.

If Apple do indeed change the connector port design then I suspect they will address the issue of backwards compatibility with older peripherals.

I also think that they will eventually allow me to do what ever the hell I want to with the things I paid for with my own money...oh wait that is a daydream. Sorry I thought we were all saying things based on reality there for a second.
