Apple Getting Ready to Ditch the Dock Connector

Rene Ritchie:

We’ve heard that Apple is getting ready to ditch the dock connector as it’s currently sized and implemented on iPods, iPhones, and iPads. The reason isn’t anything political, like a new desire to conform to an outdated micro-USB standard, but typically Apple: to save space inside the iPhone 5 for what are now more important components.

I’ve been wondering how long the dock connector would stick around.
