An analyst at KGI Securities says that Apple’s white iOS cables will be more expensive in light of the new dock connection, reports AppleInsider.
How much more expensive? 84%.
The report doesn’t speculate if the consumers will feel the higher cost or not. Sync cables for the iPhone today cost $29.99.
Because the new microdock connection is much smaller, details such as precision and durability become much more important. Furthermore, each cable will have a chip in it to detect the use of unauthorised accessories. All of these add to cost.
