Apple have a lot of time using the 30-pin connector, it's not bad to change once in a while. Things change, just look at the MiniUSB and the MicroUSB.
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2012Micro USB cannot pass audio and video. The 30 pin connector can. The closest micro USB to ... moreMHL Cable? That is a HDMI Output via Micro USB... And there are a lot of docks using micro usb... People talk about limitations from years ago. Now you can use everything over USB and acting like you definetly need a 30 pin connector is plain simple a fanboyism thing, nothing more.
iMagnetonz, 24 Aug 2012I hope they would bring the iadapter to convert mini to original connection. =PDon't worry. In no time China will come up with that solution.
I hope they would bring the iadapter to convert mini to original connection. =P
interesting fact the eu made it a std or asked all phone company to make micro usb a std so we didnt need to a buy a thousand or so cables. nice that apple does its own thing again!!!!!!!!!!
droid_master, 24 Aug 2012who cares its a connector cable!! get a life people!!If every mobile phone companies have their own connector design, what will happen to us as end users?
It is quite clear that since they are not selling phones like before they want to make money by any psbl ways, so selling us$ 10 each cable and than conectors, and other acc this will be a new biz for them
Since these guys are not selling much phones like before anymore they want to sell these stupid cables to make money and they dont understand that they keep killing harmony and peace of this world
its really idiotic not to go with micro usb like rest of the world... expecially because battery cant last a day...
oh well... fanboys will still like it =P
The Incompatibility is a liberal mechanism for the creation of needs to make money. Where is ecologi in this. God blesse Appel.
Let Apple create its own world. Lets enjoy freedom which Android always offer...
droid_master, 23 Aug 2012who cares its a connector cable!! get a life people!!having all accessories purchased for the last decade being rendered obsolete is something to care about. thinking otherwise is the equivalent of being an environmental terrorist. xman
Will be a huge mistake not to have a latching mechanism - try charging it in a moving vehicle...
i wonder if that cable dock connector can be use as a universal, i mean, same way as with the Nokia devices. different phones, same charger connectors. for example, my N9's micro usb charger could also be used to charge my portable wifi. i hope so. we'll definitely have answers in a few weeks time.
Apple should be able to design proprietary port extended from micro USB for, just like USB 3.0 port can be used with micro USB 2.0 cable. Then iDevice charging still can be done using micro USB charger.
tme, 23 Aug 2012No worry, chances are there will be an adapter. :)Which you will pay to get from apple!
