It's not a matter of IF, but WHEN. Apple WILL remove the 30-pin dock connector from the iPhone. Apple hates cords and loves simplifying things. We already are PC-free, we already have airplay for music/movie streaming. The next step is cordless charging, which is already in the works. Obviously the iPhone 5 still will have it... but I doubt the iPhone 50 will. So when do you think? My random, for fun, prediction is that the iPhone will be completely cord free by........... iPhone 7! What is your prediction?
