iPhone 5 USB cable further suggests mini docking connector

Leaked image shows iPhone 5 USB cable with new port

Apple's upcoming iPhone 5 USB cable has been leaked online confirming the smartphone will use a smaller docking connector.

The image, flagged up to iLounge by Veister, shows a USB cable for the next generation iPhone. It is the traditional white colour with a full size USB port on one end and the male part of Apple's new mini docking connector on the other.

iLounge said: "Veister is a Shenzhen, China-based accessory vendor, but the cable has yet to appear on the company's site. It is unclear whether the part shown is a replacement cable or a genuine Apple part with pre-production markings."

The image is further evidence to suggest Apple will ditch its traditional 30-pin dock connector for a smaller one - supposedly using just eight pins.

The rumour mill suggests the iPhone 5 will be announced on 12 September along with an iPad Mini. If this is the case then we don't have long to wait to find out what Apple has up its sleeve.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
