Tip photo to the iPhone 5
Cases to the following generation of phones of Apple already showed, what will be the new, reduced socket of port of synchronization of the device. But still we did not see that will be directly inserted into this port. Konnektor photos for iPhone 5 eventually appeared in the Network. And it really very much also is very small.
The French blog Nowherelse.fr which not so long since ruined utterly a photo of spare parts of new phone of Apple became a source of a photo. The new tip is similar nothing to "old". Its width and thickness make about a half from the size of ordinary USB port. On each of the parties took place on 8 contacts. That is here only 16 contacts — actually twice are less, than on the present tip of port 30-pin.
The new tip and the socket are certainly designed so that the user can connect them, without caring of tip turn in a certain situation — unlike a konnektor 30-pin. On each side small openings which, apparently, incorporate to fastenings in port for more reliable connection are located. It is not absolutely clear, as directly the Apple is going to realize accessories such as a docking station: such very narrow konnektor is easier for "breaking off", than present. Let’s leave these questions for engineers and we will be prepared for that all our accessories sharply become useless. [ap & 9to5]
