If the leaked pics of whatâ€™s supposedly the next iPhone isnâ€™t enough proof to convince you that Appleâ€™s ditching the signature 30-pin port on their iOS mobile phone, then maybe Reutersâ€™ report will.
Confirming what weâ€™ve seen in pictures, Reuters reveals the iPhone 5 will sport a smaller 19-pin connector based on the info relayed to them from two of their sources who are familiar with the matter.
If true, and with the way things are going, it most likely is, this will end the era of the 30-pin port, making existing iOS cables and accessories useless on the new iPhone. And though thereâ€™s still no evidence yet of this 19-pin port making its way to other iOS devices such as the iPad and iPod touch, the debut of a smaller connector port on the iPhone is all but a confirmation that change is coming to the entire iOS lineup.
But again, weâ€™re still taking this bit of news with a grain of salt. Apple has been known to pull some last minute surprises just to debunk rumors, and even though weâ€™re very optimistic about this one, letâ€™s just say we wouldnâ€™t be surprised if this doesnâ€™t go further than rumor starus when launch day arrives, which, if similar to last year, should happen sometime in October.
