I guess with the number of rumors that have circulated concerning the new iPhone which has been deemed to arrive this coming September, it would not hurt at all to have yet another rumor hit the news wires, right? We are talking about a redesigned dock connector that comes in a smaller form factor, and the image above was a photo which circulated on Twitter courtesy of a certain Jack Yao who happens to work at China-based accessory vendor Veister. This particular cable that you see does seem to rely on the alleged port, and there is not much you can view to help you tell the difference between it and an official Apple product, although we are not ruling out the fact that this could very well be a third-party replacement.
The alleged iPhone USB cable does ship with its fair share of FTC markings, resembling a scannable QR code of sorts on the standard USB end. At the other side of the spectrum, we are looking at the smaller dock connector lining up with previous rumors, but we will just have to wait until the official iPhone 5 or new iPhone is released to confirm anything.
