New iPhone dock connector
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.
, 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
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.
showing new iPhone specs revealed a smaller SIM card holder piece, but no measurements have been released.

This is exactly why I stay away from proprietary connectors when at all possible. I'll stick with Bluetooth, MHL adapter or DLNA over WiFi thank you.
Why do i need a phone dock on a stereo that has a remote that controls the phone through the dock? I can just use Bluetooth, keep the phone on me and use it as the remote.
