- ‘All future Apple products’ will sport new connector port from September, according to leaked Apple reports
- iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPad Mini and future iPads all set for updates
- Changeover renders hundreds of accessories obsolete without adapters
There was a public outcry when it was revealed that the next iPhone would get a new docking port connector.
The newer, slimline port means that thousands of current Apple accessories will need a potentially clunky adapter to work with the ‘iPhone 5′ – or become unusable.
Now, latest leaks from the website iMore, which has strong sources ‘close to Apple’, suggest that the entire next generation of iDevices, including the iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPad Mini and future versions of the iPad, will use the new port.
Apple is expected to refresh its iPod and iPhone product line this Autumn, and if the company sticks to its usual policy of annual upgrades, a new iPad can be expected next Spring.
