2 iPhone 5 Features ‘Confirmed’, Others Still Questionable

By  | 

Everyone has been speculating about the as yet unannounced iPhone 5 and its potential features and specs, and some are delaying their upgrades especially for the iPhone 5, shunning Android on the exceptional Samsung Galaxy S3 amongst others.

More iPhone 5 features confirmed?

Now over the past few months, we have come across a ton of rumored iPhone 5 features. While the majority are questionable, there was one that could be ‘confirmed’, that it would have 4G LTE connectivity just like its sibling the New iPad 3, released earlier this year. Now the folks over at Tapscape state that there is another feature which is “pretty much confirmed” for the iPhone 5. Read on to find out which one.

One of the theories, which has been backed up by a number of developers of iPhone accessories, is that the dock on the iPhone is to be decreased from their usual 30 pins to 19 pins, so that the device itself is smaller. This means that you will have to either get all new iPhone accessories or get an adaptor.

Tapscape has reported on a TechCrunch story which stated the following: “Three independent manufacturers all agreed that the 19-pin dock port is in the works and many accessory manufacturers are facing an uneasy few months as they wait for official news of the standard to be announced.”

The Tapscape report also rather melodramatically says that “once interchangeable accessories between most iOS devices will now be rendered obsolete” though it is likely that adaptors will be created so the “trade-off” between size of device and size of port should be worthwhile.
