Since the Apple introduced the iPhone or iPod touch or the iPad , they all have one thing in common from the very beginning- the 30 pin Dock Connector which is used for all purposes whether it be charging or syncing up the iDevice .

But that is about to change . Rumors are that the new upcoming iPhone may feature a much more compact dock connector as Apple feels the present one is occupying a bit too much space at the bottom. For those of you who have gotten up jumping in excitement thinking of a Micro-USB in place of that , you might wanna lower your hopes and sit down as none of that is gonna happen. The new dock connector would be of the same type, just with a little less of those pins . Also, this could be featured in the rumored upcoming iPad 3 too along with the upcoming iPhone .
