The new iphone was already going to be incompatible with something like that anyways. It's physically larger than the old phone, anything that has 0 room to fit a new phone was going to be screwed. I'm guessing Apple put some thought into it (mind you, I don't particularly love Apple, but bash where bashing is approved). The real gripe I have is: why the hell haven't you just moved to usb like the entire rest of the smartphone world??????
