Apple debuts new locking Dock Connectors at retail stores

Apple has started to roll out new Dock Connectors for its iPhone, iPad, and iPod displays that double as security locks, according to a new report. Citing a reader report that was subsequently confirmed by a number of Apple Store locations, AppleInsider reports that the cable may be in short supply, as not every device has one—they are primarily being used for third-generation iPads and products near the stores’ entrances—and not all stores have started to use them. The cable itself is very similar in appearance to a standard Dock Connector cable, only with a lock icon on the top, and new internals that prevent the unit from disengaging.
