iPhone 5 Lightning dock connector revealed to run alongside Thunderbolt

This week Apple showed off a brand new dock connector for their iPhone 5, and likely for the rest of their mobile line eventually, called Lightning. This cord uses an "all-digital 8-signal design" with an adaptive interface - works with either side up - and is 80 percent smaller than the previous iPod dock solution. This little beast has "improved durability" over the previous cords Apple has worked with and Apple has shown off an Adapter as well - the adapter here will allow you to work with the old 30-pin dock connector too if you've got those kinds of accessories.

Tomorrow's the big day, folks. Apple is set to hold an event tomorrow, and all signs are pointing to the reveal of the iPhone 5.

Several photos have appeared in the wild this morning showing off what very much appears to be the rumored iPhone 5 dock connector USB cable. This cable's head is compared to a microUSB cable head, the most common cable head in the mobile device industry today. These cables have been shown to be significantly similar - so much so that we'll certainly be grabbing twice in our barrel of cords once this new head appears, that's for certain.

The fact that Apple is holding a media event on September 12 has been all over the place lately, and as we close in on the date, anticipation is beginning to build.

Apple clearly wants to make its presence known on September 12, but given the Apple events of years past, we really wouldn't expect any less.

iPhone 5 launch date imminent as 4S included in “recycling” program

Apple has launched a program on their own website called Reuse and Recycling in which they're more than willing to take your iPhone 4S for a gift certificate in their store. Of course the main reason a lot of people will be doing this is that once the iPhone 5 (or whatever it'll be called) is on the market, the iPhone 4S might not look so fabulous anymore. To the early adopter "must have it" crowd, that is.
