19-pin port ‘confirmed’ as iPhone 5 case renderings leak

A new report has stated that Apple’s smaller, redesigned dock connector has been confirmed, while a separate report has appeared with claimed next-generation iPhone drawings and case renderings. TechCrunch reports that it has independently verified that Apple is working on adding a 19-pin dock connector port to the next iPhone, a fact that it cross-checked with three independent manufacturers. In addition, Mobile Fun has posted a set of images that it claims represent the next-gen iPhone—which is listed as 58.87 mm wide, 123.83 mm tall, and 7.60 mm thick—as well as renderings of what appears to be a silicone case for the device. Notably, all the images show the headphone port as appearing on the bottom of the device, lending further credence to the notion that Apple will be changing the position of that port for the first time since the original iPhone’s debut.
