Apple Dock Connector update patent could enable USB 3.0, DisplayPort, maybe Thunderbolt

Apple has patented what could well be the next generation of Dock Connector for iOS devices, potentially including functionality like USB 3.0, DisplayPort and even ThunderBolt. The patent, "Reduced size multi-pin male plug connector", describes a connector that is either narrower or thinner, thanks to various combinations of chamfered, rearranged or otherwise tweaked contacts, and which are technically capable of carrying the signals required for the latest breed of high-speed data bus.
