One of the big changes with the new iPhone/iPhone 5 is the change to a smaller, 19-pin dock connector. This has been all but confirmed, and has caused much wailing and gnashing of teeth, as people bemoan the death of their old accessories. It looks like you might yet get some use out of your old docks, though, as iMore is reporting Apple will create an adapter between the two styles.
iMore reached out to the original sources that gave us the new Dock connector story way back in February just to make doubly sure — and yes, there will be an adapter for the iPhone 5′s smaller Dock connector that will let it work with many of the accessories designed for the old 30-pin Dock connector.
iMore isn’t sure if this will be included with purchase, or you’ll have to pick it up separately. Given how these things tend to work, it’ll hit the market and be a bit more pricey than people want, and within a month you’ll be able to buy a half-price version from Asia that does the same thing.
