Don't worry all these are fake...however I hate Apples 32 pin connected ...come one the World is better without such bulky connected ...I wish they will actually do a Magsafe kind of connecter ...I don't care for the other Vendors they make so cheap and non standard Poer adapters any way ..those $5 cheap supplies actually do bad then good to the device ...nothing against them but they all should change as well...Apple always does what it the best for its Users ...I am not an Apple fan boy here but we have to appreciate good as good and bad as bad ..

Samsung is the reason android phones feels old within months of release bcos every hour of the day is the launch of a new galaxy crap and this is really bad bcos many people lack self control when it comes to matters like this. Android is ok, but none of them can match an iphone as a smart phone, never have, never will. Every apple phone is always 1,2,3,4 or even 5 steps ahead in cutting edge tech since time. Geeks should just prepare there wallets bcos now it seems gs3 is the thing but am sure it'll be a different story all over when this phone drops. Personally, it'll be the only phone worth upgrading to, for me.

It is bad enough Apple will only make iPhones work with their own products but now to change the game so far in and make it a 19-pin adapter.
I feel sorry for the third-party developers and accessory companies who have made so much products that are now near worthless.

As for the new iphone no-one knows anything at all its all guesswork so far..Apple will unveil the new phone when it decides..Just because Pegatron has started something it could be manufacturing the ipad mini..Out of all the rumours lets hope the move to put the 3.5mm jack at bottom is false.

I don't get the mystery with this...some time in 2010/11 manufacturers including apple agreed that micro USB would become the industry standard for chargers to save on landfill when people changed phones.....

lol apple is still at it. Wanting to be different. Their only reason to do this is to make the accessories EXCLUSIVE for the iphones. Whats the bet you will need to buy the adapter EXTRA haha

I think this does go down as the worst hidden phone in the history of phones lol. We know everything about the phone.

With only 58 comments till now I believe this must be the smallest Iphone blog on GSMARENA till now LOL.
BTW lets wait to hear more about the new iphone as a lot still needs to be unveiled...& I really hope Apple does something different in terms of the design. I don't personally like the phone but for loyal Apple users I think they deserve a lot more considering the move from iphone 4 to 4s wasn't much spec wise when you consider other OEM'S.
& well the everyone knows about the design,so hope they give a better device or make a kickass phone so that other OEM's will sit up & take notice..& then scramble to thrash the competition...WE CONSUMERS WILL WIN ANYWAY & SHOULD!!!
Remember our money is at stake!!

Love it! Those buying the new iphone are those that don't mind spending a little more cash and appreciate a classy product. These are the true Apple fans. People that want the best. Apple will make sure sure of it's exclusivity amongst the well to do. These new connectors will make sure only the faithful will remain. Those complaining probably don't deserve an iphone. Look, if you can't appreciate it, don't buy it. It's the same reason why you bought a Ford and not a Ferrari.

Haha not about beying unique...
Thats not what they're aiming for
They are aiming for making your old apple accesories obsolete so they can sell more...dorectly from apple or indirectly via licensed 3rd party accesory makers.
Pay up folks.
