Apple’s new connector is a significant technical achievement and a clear improvement over the old connector. The problem is, the 30-pin covers all iPhones up to the 4S and it started way back with the original iPod. So there’s a huge ecosystem of products still on the market that use it. But it’s time to change, and update all of Apple’s products, so the new ecosystem can flourish. It makes sense that tomorrow’s a good time for Apple to update their flagship tablet as they introduce a new tablet. So here’s a PSA: don’t buy an iPad until you know it’s getting updated, unless you have 30-pin accessories you were hoping to use.
