If the next-gen iPhone 5 is going to have a new dock connector, that would leave the current models of both the iPhone and the iPad useless. And what about the accessories especially the hundreds to thousands of docking stations available? What will happen now to the hundreds of bucks spent on those kick-ass audio systems?
Apple would be providing an adapter for the new 19-pin to work with a 30-pin dock connector shared iMore. It’s unknown whether it will come with the iPhone 5 kit or if it will be a separate accessory. I hope this is the case I know a lot of people who have spent lots of money on their iOS-device audio system.
