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.

With the dock-mUSB cable they are already compatible with every other phone charger.
If you want accessories standardized across all phones, you need every phone manufacturer to pick a standard other than USB so as to gain host support, video and audio support for cheap component and composite, and HDMI support.
Note, I know that On-The-Go was added as a supplement to USB2 and USB3, but audio support, video support, and HDMI are still not "standard" and require custom HW such as MHL to implement.
Better to convince everyone else to do something like a new microDisplayPort or microHDMI connector to gain audio, video, analog, digital, charging, ethernet, and host support.
