Rumours surround the next iPhone from Apple just keeps rolling in. After reporting that the iPhone event is set for 12th September, iMore is now reporting that Apple’s new iOS devices will be sporting a new dock connector.
The article states:
iMore has learned that Apple intends to update their entire lineup of iOS device products to support the new, miniaturized Dock connector, and to do it as early the rumored September 12 special event this fall. This would include the new iPhone 5, the the new iPod nano and iPod touch, the rumored 7-inch iPad mini, and an updated version of the current 9.7-inch iPad.
The information comes from the same sources that told iMore about the new, smaller Dock connector back in February, and about a mini Dock adapter to fit legacy accessories last month.
We’ve gone over the reasons why Apple would release an iPad mini and how they could implement it before, but refreshing the iPad 3 so soon after it’s March, 2012 launch, especially considering past updates have occurred only yearly schedules, is something equally interesting to consider.
If this is true, it’s imperative that Apple produces an adaptor that connects current Speakers to the new iOS devices. The last thing you want after paying for an iPhone is to buy new Speakers. I’m also hoping that this adaptor retails at a reasonable price.
