I normally stay out of this sort of thing, but.... you do know none of this is actually proper confirmed news? Its all speculation, if you look back at the iPad 3 and iPhone 4S launches not a single blog or magazine got it all correct. Basically any tiny rumour was reported, so some people were bound to be correct on the law of averages, but most places even with supposedly 'high up' sources were very wrong! The reason they publish every single little rumour is the amount of traffic it brings to their website. If they're the first with a new rumour, that brings traffic.

Nobody outside of a few key people at Apple and their suppliers know all the facts, and I can't imagine many people at all outside of Jony Ive, Tim Cook and a few other key people know what the new one is going to look like.

I know, I know smile It's just starting to irritate the constant stream of crap that's normally completely wrong (from previous releases this is). And the people who are publishing the rumours don't care, it just generates traffic to their site.

Im concerned about talk of a new smaller dock connector with a new way of charging. Will instantly make loads of docks and in car connections useless and that can't be good

Having just forked out for a decent dock, I will be extremely annoyed if these rumours become true.

I'll believe it when I see it, they'd be mental to change the dock connector and make something quite so ugly.

They're going to have to make a bigger jump than the incremental stuff to maintain their gap over some of the other devices. Having just been out to play with a few phones (Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X, Nokia Lumia) there's certainly not the gulf of difference there once was in form or function IMO.

The screen looks to big to be able to use just one hand with, so I don't think that's what the next iPhone will look like. Apple have said they don't intend to make their screens so big that 2 hands are needed to use it. I also remember last year the screen looked huge, in the pictures of the supposedy 4s when it really wans't.

Of course we don't know if this is real or not. But it would be logical, as it would mean that:
i) the speakers have more space as the dock takes up less space.
ii) apple will be able to sell OEM cables for longer, since every man and his dog makes an apple iphone connector and those sales don't benefit apple directly. (They do in terms of support for their product and hence wider adoption, but I think they'll guess adoption will be so wide it doesn't matter, and they want to flog their own cables.)

I was concerned about the new dock connector initially

But then I realised the only thing it gets plugged into, is the charger, as both my dock and car are bluetooth

It looks big, be interesting to see how it compares size wise to the One X and S3.

Seems legit, the gap in the frame at the front bottom matches the home buttons we've seen already (although they could be fake too)
