Apple is silently working on new devices, software and accessories to take the next iPhone to an all new level. eTrade Supply, a third party Apple component vendor has posted a video of the next iPhone's back panel revealing a new 19 pin connector port at the bottom. In the video, the trader compares the back panel of iPhone 5 (expected to be called so) with the iPhone 4S in order to show the physical changes in the connector port.
It seems like Apple is prepping a new set of connector indicating that all the existing accessories like docks and charger will not be usable with the new phone. The Cupertino based firm is known for taking bold steps with its products. The next iPhone will be the platform for Apple to introduce the new 19 pin connector. This will allow the iPhone to be connected with a PC or Mac by means of a USB cable or with the other new accessories.
Since the launch of the third generation iPod Touch, Apple was using 30 pin connector ports. However, the hardware designers at Apple were always looking forward to save the space by making use of compact internal parts. Three different sources suggest that the iPhone 5 will be having a 19 pin connector port. As the space is saved with this new connector, the speaker grill is moved to the bottom of the phone.
We have seen many leaks about the iPhone 5 including panel leak, concept design created by Jon Fawcett and teen's concept. We know that the next iPhone will be having a larger splendid 4 inch display with Retina Display. More rumors will be circulating as the iPhone 5 is expected to be launched in September.
