For Apple to build a phone as slim as the iPhone 5, it needed a trimmer dock connector, which meant the venerable 30-pin dock on earlier iPhones (and iPod and iPads) had to go. The new Lightning connector has an all-digital, 8-signal design, and is 80% smaller than its 30-pin predecessor. Apple says it's more durable too. One nice touch: Lightning is reversible, so there's no wrong way to plug it in.
