Report: Next-generation iPhone to see smaller dock connector, new headphone jack location

According to a reportб═fromб═Reuters, the next-generation iPhone will feature a smaller 19-pin dock connector as oppose to the current 3o-pin connector found on the iPhone 4S (and other Apple products). Alongside this switch, the new device will also see the headphone jack moving from the top of the phone to the bottom next to the dock connector.б═

Due to the different connector, the next iPhone won’t be compatible with the wide variety of accessories on the market today. As an attempt to address this, Apple will likely be including a 30-pin-to-19-pin adapter with the new iPhone, which is expected to launch sometime later this year.
