According to a recent report from iLounge, Apple’s USB sync cable for iPhone 5 has been leaked online. As you can see in the picture below, there’s a normal USB cable on one end, whereas the other end includes supposedly a 9 pin dock connector which is rumored from a quite long time. Undoubtedly, Apple’s iOS 6 code has revealed about 9 pin dock connector as well. So it might be a real deal for the company.
However, it’s not known whether it’s a replacement cable or a legit Apple product with pre-production markings. If this turns out to be correct, you don’t need to worry because it’s expected that Apple would sell a dock converter from 9 pin to 30 pin, so that rest of your Apple accessories won’t die so soon. Also, Apple had introduced ‘cut the cord’ feature with iOS 5.0 that minimises the need for anyone to sync their devices using a USB sync cable.
Apple’s also expected to incorporate the same 9 pin dock connector in other devices such as upcoming iPad mini, iPod touch and previously launched new iPad. These things would become more clear when the cupertino based company would unveil its next generation iPhone on September 12 which is reportedly to go on sale on September 21.
