Then why're you saying Dock Connector 2 will do anything?

 

We can like, we can want, we can assume, but we can't know. The only thing we CAN know is that it'll have to be pretty darn complex to pack in what we know and love from Dock Connector.

Really? Yet you claimed that a 9, 16, or 17-pin connector that is reversible is neither more complex nor more sophisticated in any way than the current 30-pin connector. You claimed that having the device determine the plug's orientation so that it would know how the plug is orientated thereby maximizing the number of pins being used is neither more complex nor more sophisticated in any way than the current 30-pin connector. You claimed that having the pins switch either on the device on the cable so that one wire could have dual pins would not be more complex or sophisticated than the one-to-one wire-to-pin design is neither more complex nor more sophisticated in any way than the current 30-pin connector. You claimed that having the device use the same number of pins as USB 3.0's 9-pin design and having the device determine the signal type for various other features currently used in the 30-pin dock connector that are mapped one-to-one s neither more complex nor more sophisticated in any way than the current 30-pin connector. So how you can now say you can't claim anything when you've clearly claimed that nothing Apple could do with this new dock connector could be more sophisticated or more complex than the current design? When has Apple gone backwards on their sophistication and complexity? mDP connector over DVI and ACD? No! The only way this is less complex and less sophisticated is if it's a uni-directional connector for data and power for USB with none of the great features available in the current connector. You might be right, they might go that route, but there is a lot more evidence that Apple will make this key connector better, not worse.
