First Next-Generation iPhone 5 Accessory Leaked And Detailed

Yesterday, iLounge posted images from an anonymous source of what’s allegedly one of the first iPhone 5 compatible accessories. The USB charging accessory, apparently from Scosche, incorporates both micro USB and the new 8-pin connector for the next-generation iPhone.

Presumably capable of powering a wide array of devices, possibly including the upcoming iPhone, the accessory is certainly ahead of it’s time. In fact, Scosche requested that MacRumors remove the image embedded above from the post on their site.

The standard 30-pin connector, currently used in all generations of iPods, iPhones and iPads, has been Apple’s charging and data transfer port of choice since 2007. Expected to adpot a new, redesigned, smaller dock connector, the next-generation iPhone will be the first Apple product to make use of the benefits that come with having a smaller charging and data transfer port.

Expected to be announced and revealed on September 12th at Apple’s annual iPhone unveiling event, the next-generation iPhone will certainly be an intriguing device to look forward to. Stay tuned for complete coverage on Apple and their sixth-generation iPhone.
