iPhone 5 rumors: next iPhone could feature 8-pin connector

Following reports of a 19-pin connector port for the iPhone 5, iLounge now writes that Apple will implement an 8-pin connector in the future iPhone.

No picture of this new type of connector has been published by any website.

This new rumor contradicts previous ones reporting that Apple has received a patent for a 16- or 19-pin.

The report also writes about the fact that iOS 6 will use the Bluetooth 4.0 technology to enable interconnection between its devices and sharing of information.

More specifically, users could see the messages they received on the iPhone on an iPod and phone calls could be controlled by the iPod.

The same could be available for iPad tablet or Macs that would be able to initiate calls directly from an iPhone, and call control would be done by a third party device.
