iPhone 19 pin dock connector

Apple is set to do away with its ten-year-old 30 pin dock connector in favor of a smaller, more compact version on the next-generation iPhone that's set to launch this fall. The new 19-pin connector will take up less space, allowing the headphone jack to be moved to the bottom of the device as well.

The move is controversial and will surely upset many owners of third-party dock connector accessories. On the flip-side though, this shows how nimble Apple is willing to be in order to spur progress with its devices. Thankfully, the company will purportedly be offering an 19-to-30 pin adapter to ease the transition.

Steve Jobs worked closely on upcoming iPhone redesign, says Bloomberg

4-inch iPhone

A few days ago, The Wall Street Journal reported that the next iPhone will have at least a 4-inch display, and the next day Reuters independently reported the same. Yesterday, Bloomberg jumped in with the same report, so it looks like it's a lock. In addition, Bloomberg is also reporting that Steve Jobs "worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October."

Interestingly enough, it was Steve Jobs himself who said that no one wants to buy a big phone. Of course, as we've seen with plenty of 4G LTE Android devices, larger smartphones are everywhere. Of course, Apple has some room on the current iPhone form factor to enlarge the display without changing the size of the phone itself too much. Maybe Steve was right--rather than making a big phone, Apple can just make a big display while keeping the device itself relatively the same size.
