iPhone 5 has 8-Pin Connector

It is almost certain that Apple will switch to a new smaller dock connector with the introduction of the new iPhone (iPhone 5). Initial rumor reports said that the new dock connector has 16 or 19 pins. iLounge reports today that the connector has just 8 pins and can be plugged in either orientation like MagSafe.

It does not really matter for consumers how many pins the new dock connector has, but to be able to plug in the cable in either orientation would be really nice.

The new iPhone 5 is expected to be announced on September 12. The iPhone 5 sales are then to begin September 21. Rumored features of the new iPhone 5 include a larger screen, A6 CPU, iOS 6, small dock connector, 4G LTE and NFC. The overall design would not change dramatically, only the backside material is not glass anymore. More iPhone 5 Rumors .
