Rumors of a 19-pin dock connector for the next iPhone have been circulating for some time.
Gizmodo has come up with an interesting theory according to which this new port connector could be compatible with the standard micro-USB.
Apple has reportedly signed a document by which they comply with the European Union directive to standardize chargers around micro-USB.
This means that users will be able to charge an iPhone using any charger that is compatible with the standard micro-USB.
As for the incompatibility of other accessories, a converter such as the one presented in the image below, imagined by Italian blog Mela, would allow users to continue using old accessories having a 30-pin dock connector.
