Apple has been granted a patent for what is believed to be a new docking connector for the next version of the iPhone - and consumers are worried.

Apple is believed to be revamping the charging port for the iPhone5, which is expected to be released later this year.

The rumours about Apple users having to replace all their expensive accessories have been in overdrive for weeks.

The patent would seem to confirm the rumours that Apple  - which always plays its cards tight to its chest with new designs - is switching its 30-pin dock to 19-pin.

And that is what  concerns Apple users. The new design will mean changing all of your peripherals, such as speaker docks, however adapters are coming to market and guess who has them coming? That's right! CaseBuddy.
