Apple Lightning connector

During today's iPhone 5 event, Apple unveiled its new Lightning dock connector that will ship on the new iPhone 5. The company is switching its iOS devices from the familiar 30-pin dock connector, to the smaller 8-pin design. Nothing was said about the speed, but based on the name, we are assuming that the Lightning connector is compatible with USB 3.0 speeds. The connector is also reversible, making it easier to use. For those with accessories that rely on the 30-pin connector, Apple is also releasing an adapter to make the transition easier.
