Apple’s 30-pin dock connector has been quite the mainstay for some time already, with the iPhone and the iPad sharing use of the “Apple cable” in order to send and receive data, in addition to synchronizing your collection of files while doubling up as a charger cable. Since Apple is always on the lookout to improve, it goes without saying that the 30-pin dock connector might soon be a thing of the past. There are whispers on the ground that Apple will be killing off the 30-pin dock connector by replacing it with a different albeit smaller version, and it remains to be seen whether this rumored smaller dock connector will feature 30 pins or not. Rumors also point towards the next generation iPhone sporting this new connection type – third party accessory manufacturers, here is yet another avenue for you to earn more moolah! Hopefully with time, all will be revealed. It would also mean churning out a slew of new docks that are compatible with the latest iPhone, while offering another connector (or using an adapter) to cater for the older generation devices.
