Apple may be making a change to the design of connector for the iPhone 5 which is going to make iPhone users very angry!
It seems that Apple is switching from a 30-pin connector to a 19-pin connector on the new iPhone 5, which will make virtually all iPhone accessories purchased for previous iPhone versions instantly obsolete – and Apple hardware is not cheap!
Many Apple fans will roll with the change, and upgrade their phone and re-purchase all of their favorite accessories again, but we feel that there will be a good number of less hardcore iPhone users that will be turned off enough to switch to Android.
All those expensive iPhone accessories you own, all the stuff that plugs into the bottom of the device — speakers, docks, chargers and so on — may be about to become obsolete.
Tech blog TechCrunch reports that Apple plans to change the design and size of the connector for the iPhone 5. The old 30-pin connector, which has been the standard since the third generation iPod, is to be replaced by a 19-pin mini connector.
