iControlPad the gaming accessory for smartphones that has been in production since August has decide to change the connection design for its iPhone model.
The team behind it has decided to drop the Apple Dock connector within the device and instead use Bluetooth to connect to iPhones. The move comes over legal fears that Apple may require a license agreement if the dock connector is used.
Craig Rothwell said, Apple’s recent litigation against HyperMac for using the iPod connector without permission was a key factor in their decision to drop the dock connector.
