Will Apple Update Its Entire iOS Lineup This Autumn?

By Casey Chan on at

At this point, Apple is widely expected to swap the iPhone's longstanding 30-pin dock connector with something a lot smaller. But what about the rest of Apple's iOS product lineup? Hell, what about the iPod nano? According to iMore, all of Apple's iOS products will get updated to include the new dock adapter.

That means every iOS device—from the upcoming iPhone 5 to the fabled 7-inch iPad mini and even the current iPad 3 will sport the new adapter come Autumn. Even the iPod Nano and iPod Touch, according to iMore's sources, are expected to be revamped to include the smaller port. Does this make sense? Jumping the update cycle of the iPad by only adding in a smaller dock connector would be an odd move but it would keep the iOS product line consistent. A quick death to the 30-pin is probably the best thing to do. [iMore]
