iMore is reporting that not only the new iPhone 5, but all the iOS devices will receive the new mini Dock connector this year. Rene Ritchie wrote on iMore:

iMore has learned that Apple intends to update their entire lineup of iOS device products to support the new, miniaturized Dock connector, and to do it as early the rumored September 12 special event this fall. This would include the new iPhone 5, the the new iPod nano and iPod touch, the rumored 7-inch iPad mini, and an updated version of the current 9.7-inch iPad.

We have also been hearing that Apple will move all its iOS devices to the new mini Dock connector, but we haven’t heard anything about the 9.7-inch iPad. However, Q4 will be right time for Apple to update the 9.7-inch iPad with IGZO LCD display from Sharp and faster A6 processor just before holidays.

In other iPhone 5 related news, 9to5mac has found proof in the new iOS 6 beta release that the next generation iPhone will have 1136 x 640 resolution. Mark Gurman wrote on 9to5mac:

Thanks to some tweaks to the iOS Simulator application that is included in the iOS development tools, we were able to run the simulator at the rumored next-generation iPhone display resolution of 640 x 1136. We did this running both the current public release of iOS 5.1 and the upcoming iOS 6.0 The iOS 5.1 simulator displayed the home screen with a stretched set of four rows of icons. On the other hand, iOS 6 displayed five complete rows – as our sources said Apple was testing for taller iPhone displays.

This proves that the upcoming release of iOS 6, which will obviously come pre-loaded on the new iPhone, is well-aware of taller iPhone displays. It scales perfectly to the taller resolution.

We have already heard that Apple is going with a bigger screen in iPhone 5 and this news fits perfectly with the rumors that iPhone 5 will have taller, but not wider 4-inch screen.
