Magnetic MagSafe Dock Connector For The New iPhone [Rumors]
There are rumors that Apple company will include in the new iPhone MagSafe dock connector which the company has recently patented.
Earlier I wrote that iPhone 5 will feature smaller dock connector and Apple’s compact interface of mobile devices will have a multiple of nine numbers of contacts. 18 contacts on the plug and 9 pin in the dock. Of course, this information has to be verified, but until such an explanation sounds logical.
There also is another feature of the upcoming dock connector. According to the rumors, it will receive a new type of connector functionality similar to the MagSafe technology, widely used in the Apple laptops. The main MagSafe feature is that the connection is held in place thanks to the magnets, so if someone accidentally hits the power cord, cable will disconnect but a laptop remains in its place. This reduces the risk of falling and damaging your gadget. In addition they are equipped with light indicator, signaling a full battery charge.
Few hours ago I wrote you about received real images of the new iPhone, which indicate the presence of a metal ring around its dock connector. It is, presumably, will be used to mount a compact plug. Application of magnetic connectors will increase the ease of using iOS devices and will better protect the interface from the ingress of moisture or accidental spills.
It is must be mentioned that in the beginning, Apple has a patent for “intelligent” MagSafe dock connectors for the new iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. According to the document, company wants to use the universal magnetic connectors for both power and data sync to phones, iPods and tablets. When you connect your device this cable will be automatically determined by the type of portable device and in accordance with that certain number of contacts be invoked.
