Milking the Apple customer all the way to the bank.

The U.S. Patent Office has granted Apple a patent for what is believed to be the new dock connector on the next iPhone.

Apple is believed to be revamping the charging port for what will be the fifth version of the iPhone, which is expected to arrive later this Autumn.

As with all of Apple’s products, the company keeps its cards very close to its chest before launches, but the patent filing describes a charging and data port which matches the rumoured new design.

Sadly for Apple users, the new design will mean changing all of your peripherals, such as speaker docks, unless adapters comes to market.
