iPhone 5 rumors: 19-pin connector port for next iPhone

Rumors of a smaller dock connector for the future iPhone are reiterated by Reuters.

The publication reports that the iPhone 5 will feature a 19-pin connector port instead of the classic 30-pin port “to make room for the earphone moving to the bottom”, sources cited by Reuters say.

This means that the new dock connector will be almost 40% smaller than the current one.

It has been speculated that the new port will be implemented by Apple in order to meet a commitment made by the company with the EU, which stated that all devices should have a microUSB port instead of current 30-pin.

However, Reuters claims that Apple has reduced the size of that port connector to implement the earphone at the bottom of the iPhone.

Whatever the real motivation behind this change, the fact is that we will have to replace all accessories that connect to the iPhone’s connector port from now on.

“It represents an opportunity for accessory vendors,” says Pete Cunningham, analyst at technology research firm Canalys.

“The iPhone connector has been a standard for a long time now and I would expect the same to be true for a new connector, should Apple change it as expected.”
