While rumors about a new 8, 9 or 19 pin connector that is supposed to come on the sixth generation iPhone continue to heat up, the AppleInsider found that "new" connectors are already being used in Apple Retail Stores.
Similar to the conventional cable that comes with all iGadgets, the new security connector elegantly protects iPads on display at Apple Retail Stores. The only visible difference is the presence of a padlock image, instead of the traditional rectangle. Still a mystery as to how the connector works, as much as how it is taken out by the employees.
This is a much more elegant solution than those used by some dealers, which include several security cables / locks. The source also says that an alarm can be installed to alert store employees when the cable is disconnected.
Although not changing the look or compromising the usability of the devices, the cable has not yet been installed in all stores, and not all devices are attached by them only those that are in * risky position * (right at the entrance of the store, for example).
