iPad 3 Will Have Smaller Redesigned Dock Connector [Rumor]



You don’t need a crystal ball to tell you that the iPad 3 is almost definitely coming in March of next year, twelve months after the iPad 2 debuted. What changes will we see with the third generation of Apple’s tablet? Expectations for the iPad 3 include a Retina Display, a slimmer form factor, Siri support, Apple’s next-gen A6 SoC and even the possibility of LTE 4G.

We won’t know for months whether those expectations are accurate, but thanks to a Japanese rumor site, we do have a lead one one change to the iPad 3: it will have a smaller, redesigned dock connector that will require an adapter to work existing Apple Dock Connector products, according to Macotakara. Argh. Not again.
