Apple's new dock connector is basically a big old screw job. Sure, it helps make your phone slimmer, and sleeker by saving space. Great, but Apple also wants to charge you $30 for a 30-pin adapter, and it's installed a special chip to make it hard for unauthorized OEMs to produce accessories. As if that weren't bad enough, it looks like even Apple-approved Lightning-friendly hardware could still be months away.
