There has been much talk over the past few months regarding Apple’s smaller dock connector. Although most of the leaks we have seen are that of the connector itself, but that has now changed, with iLounge discovering the first screenshots of accessories built to utilize the smaller connector.
Weeks ahead of the debut of the next-generation iPhone, an anonymous tipster has provided iLounge with the first photographs of electronic accessories designed for Apple’s new Dock Connector. Each of the images appears to show upcoming products from leading third-party accessory maker Scosche, beginning with “syncABLE Pro,” a dual-device wall charger and “reNUE Pro,” a dual-device car charger. Both charging products are bundled with a cable that converts its Micro USB plug into a “new Apple connector,” and come in multiple versions with varying levels of power output.
Also included in the article is a picture (above) of the iPhone 4S in the sixth-gen iPhone case. The connector is obviously much smaller than the current one, and the size of the holes on either side suggest larger speakers and room for a headphone jack.
