With the iPhone 5’s launch predicted to be just two weeks away, images of accessories compatible with the rumoured smaller dock connector that is expected to be introduced with the new iPhone have been leaked.
iLounge published the images on Tuesday, showing upcoming products from Scosche, a third-party accessory maker, which were leaked by an “anonymous tipster.”
The products include the syncABLE Pro, and dual-device wall charger, and reNUE Pro, a dual-device car charger, both of which include a cable which “converts its Micro USB plug into a “new Apple connector,” reports iLounge.
iLounge has since removed the images as requested by Apple, but you can still view them here.
It is expected that the smaller dock connector will be 8-9pin, rather than the current 30-pin design found in Apple devices, though we have also heard rumours of a 19-pin and 16-pin connector. In July, Apple was granted a patent for a smaller iPhone 5 power port, adding evidence to the speculation.
The latest reports suggest that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 at a special event on 12 September, and several analysts say that it will be the biggest electronics launch in history.
