Apple unveils, Lightning, its new, smaller dock connector for the iPhone

As foretold by our own Richard Gaywood, Apple unveiled a new dock connector for the iPhone 5. Called Lightning, the new connector is 80% smaller than the current 30-pin version. Besides being smaller, Lightning features an 8-signal design and improved durability. It’s also reversible so you don’t have to monkey around when you are trying to charge your device. Apple is working with accessory makers to get the new dock connector into their products. There will also be an adapter for older 30-pin products.
