New rumor says that Apple names new small 9-pin port Lightning.

With the introduction of the iPhone 5 a new smaller dock connector is launching. The new small 9-pin connector replaces the aging 30-pin connector Apple has used so far. A new report on 9to5Mac says that Apple is calling the new port Lightning. This would fit to the new high speed port Apple rolled out of the last months named Thunderbolt.

The name would also suggest that the Lightning Dock Cable would allow for faster data transfer (USB 3.0?).

The new iPhone 5 will be unveiled today at 10am PDT in the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. The iPhone 5 Event will be opened by Tim Cook. 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 and 4G LTE. The overall design would not change dramatically. The backside material is not glass anymore as Apple introduces a unibody design. The rumors also say that the iPhone 5 is very thin.
