Apple has made a number of small but notable changes to its Apple Universal Dock kit. The new set includes the Universal Dock, which looks similar to the company’s 2007 model, Apple’s new aluminum Remote, Dock Adapters to fit the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G/3GS, iPod touch 2G/3G, iPod touch 4G, and iPod nano 5G, a USB power adapter and USB cable. Perhaps due to the inclusion of the charger, the revised Universal Dock package now sells for $59, compared to $49 for the prior version. Apple’s new Universal Dock is available now.

Update: Apple has also made changes to its Component and Composite AV Cable packages, lowering the price on each by $10 to $39, while removing the USB Power Adapter. [Thanks, Tim]

They also repackaged the component/composite av cables, dropped the price $10 to $39, and removed the USB power adapter from the bundle.

No Classic adaptor means spending more money, and that’s not going to happen after spending $60 for the dock kit.

For what it’s worth, the iPod classic is the only iPod to still include the dock adapter in its box.

I suspect all the Classics for sale are old stock, that it’s been some time since Apple made a single one of them. When they sell down to some pre-determined stock level, Apple will quietly discontinue the product, recall all store stock, and move the remainder as refurbs whether new or not, and that will be the end of the clickwheel.

Why can’t they make a classic emulator like people with jailbroken iPhone have ? the clickwheel would fit and then you could play old iPod games people had bought on an iPhone or iPod touch ?
