So why is this important...
Anyways i know why apple wants to put a diffrent dock conencter....
so when the one that was in the box breaks , you cant use ur old one ... forcing you to buy a new one

Apple should go to the MicroUSB standard. Pretty much everyone else has....

I thought Apple was going to put an adapter in the box with the new iPhone? So you can still use it with the old connectors.

These 8pin connectors was a pain! They are indeed reversible but they easily get frayed! Good thing, I got a replacement cable. Saw this deal for 40% off and I took advantage of it.
