Secondly, the leaked images appear to have a smaller connector/charging port. According to Technology blog TechCrunch, the new mini connector will downsize from the current 30-pin port to a 19-pin port suggesting that Apple was reducing the size of the iPhone 5 connector to provide space for extra spec.
There’s also another rumor saying that Apple is developing a mass-market version of the iPhone to be sold in a much cheaper price in developing countries.
