Smaller connectors = more breakage?
Interesting. Think of all the third party companies (clock radio's etc.,) that would have to create a new product.Bryan---Bryan Thompson

The reason isn’t anything political, like a new desire to conform to an outdated micro-USB standard, but typically Apple: to save space inside the iPhone 5 for what are now more important components.---
Apple probably won’t go micro-USB either, because it’s not faster and not Apple’s style.
A smaller dock connector — a “micro dock” if you will — makes a lot more sense.
