    I can't see Apple continuing to sell one, single product with the old dock for another 6 months - I'm guessing they'll have to do at least a minor iPad update soon to change this...

    What do you think?

    Probably never, the iPads, iPhone 4/4S, and last year's iPod Touch still have the 30 pin dock.

    What about the iPod Shuffle? I don't think they've updated that this time, so surely will still use old style dock??

    According to Apple's site, same 3.5 jack to USB.

    There is no iPad 3. ;)

    The current iPad range will continue with the 30-pin connector until such time as they are replaced.

    Why would they have to change it on the current model iPad? The next revision will have it.
