Recently, there has been a lot of talk around the iPhone 5. One of the main differences between the upcoming model and its predecessors is a smaller dock port for connecting charging, sync cable and accessories. Photos of the concepts of adapters for the new dock connector appeared on the pages of the Italian resource melablog.
The photo shows a rather unusual adapter. Its distinctive feature is the presence of a connection not only to the dock port itself, but also to the audio jack, which, by the way, will be located at the bottom of the iPhone 5.
It is not clear how this connector will be used. Perhaps it will simply provide improved cable retention and prevent accidental disconnection. It is possible that it is possible to transmit sound or even data through it. This is the pattern used in Apple's iPod Shuffle. In addition to the adapter for the iPhone 5, the authors of the resource proposed an adapter for the current version of the connectors, which will allow you to connect a standard mini-usb cable to the device.
