iPhone 5 rumors: Apple will offer adapter for the new dock connector

This is a continuation of the previous report on the new smaller dock connector for the upcoming iPhone 5.

A Reuters report stated that 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”, according to sources.

The change will make a great number of accessories currently available on the market incompatible with the new port.

However, according to iMore, Apple will offer an adapter that will work with accessories designed for the old 30-pin dock connector.

“We haven’t heard if one will be included in the box along with the iPhone 5, or will only be sold separately, but either way, come October, you’ll be able to get a new-to-old Dock adapter from Apple,” the site writes.

Recent reports suggest that the future smartphone has already entered production at Pegatron, one of the company’s Shanghai factories.
