Yesterday we heard that Apple’s new iPhone 5 will feature a new 19 pin dock connector, which has left many people wondering what will happen to their existing accessories and docks that use the current iPhone 30 pin dock connector.
According to a recent report from iMore, Apple will provide an adapter that will make the new 19 pin iPhone 5 dock connector compatible with devices that use the 30 pin dock connector.
It isn’t clear as yet on whether this new adapter will come bundled with the iPhone 5 or whether it will be sold as a separate accessory, although we suspect Apple will probably sell it as a separate accessory.
We are hoping to get some sort of official announcement about the iPhone 5 next month, the device is expected to go on sale some time in either September or October.
Apple has now announced the iPhone 5, have a look at our article on the difference between the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 to see all about the new iPhone 5.
