Apple’s new 9-pin dock connector might be called ‘Lightning’, new earbuds called ‘Earpod’32
Given Apple’s obsessions with catchy marketing tactics, we expect this connector to be called “Lightning,” just as it is referred to internally. It does make sense not only because of the grandeur of the word, but also because the Lightning connector would go along pretty good with the Thunderbolt connector for Macs.
Another piece of the iPhone puzzle that’s just been found is about the new earbuds that will come with the iPhone. We’ve already seen them leak out and they look very different and far from ordinary. Apple is said to name them “Earpods” and sell them for $29 in the States. We’d guess they will be bundled with iPhone and iPods but for absolute certainty, we’d need to wait a few more hours.
It’s coming, folks, we’ll be covering all things iPhone and Apple all day with the big event kicking off at 10:00 PCT.
