Apple To Shrink Connector For Iphone 5
« on: July 23, 2012, 11:22:21 PM »


TAIPEI/HONG KONG: Apple's new iPhone
will drop the wide dock connector used in
the company's gadgets for the best part
of a decade in favor of a smaller one, a
change likely to annoy the Apple faithful
but which could be a boon for accessory
makers.
The iPhone 5, Apple's next generation
iPhone expected to go on sale around
October, will come with a 19-pin
connector port at the bottom instead of
the proprietary 30-pin port "to make
room for the earphone moving to the
bottom", two sources familiar with the
matter told Reuters.
That would mean the new phone would
not connect with the myriad of
accessories such as speakers and power
chargers that form part of the ecosystem
around iPods, iPads and iPhones, without
an adaptor.
That means new business, analysts say.
"It represents an opportunity for
accessory vendors," said Pete
Cunningham, London-based analyst at
technology research firm Canalys. "The
iPhone connector has been a standard for
a long time now and I would expect the
same to be true for a new connector,
should Apple change it as expected."
Apple did not immediately reply to an
emailed request for comment.
Tech blogs have long speculated on the
demise of the 30-pin connector, which at
21 mm wide takes up a chunk of space,
especially as the latest technologies such
as microUSB offer more power in less
space.
They say that a smaller connector would
give Apple more scope for new product
designs or a bigger battery, or simply to
make ever smaller products.
Switzerland's Logitech, one of the biggest
makers of Apple speakers, declined to
comment.
