Several days ago, Jeremy Horwitz of iLounge dropped some details surrounding the release of the next gen iPhone and other iDevices. Today, their sources have revealed 2 more pieces of info regarding the smaller dock connector and the improved bluetooth functionality that’ll be found in iOS 6.
It had been rumoured that the smaller dock connector would either have 16 or 19 pins, though according to these very sources, the new connector will in fact only feature 8 pins – a significant drop from the 30 pins found in the current dock connectors. Moreover, they could potentially be connected like a MagSafe, where the male-end of the connector can be inserted in either orientation. If you’ve ever tried plugging in a USB cable to your iPhone/iPad (while in the dark) for an overnight charge, this could be huge (for me anyway).

Dead Trigger, the gorgeous first person zombie shooter released by Madfinger Games a little over a month ago, not only got a rather significant update, but the game has also gone completely free. It was previously available for $0.99, and it would appear that this is a permanent price drop. As pointed out by IGN recently, Madfinger decided to drop Dead Trigger on Android from $0.99 to free due to an ”unbelievably high” piracy rate. And while the developer has stated on Facebook that piracy rates are much higher on Android, it looks as though they’ve decided to go the “Free-to-play” route on iOS as well.

Judge Dredd first made an appearance on the iPhone several months ago in the well received game Judge Dredd vs Zombies. And now, Tin Man Games has released their first licensed Gamebook Adventures app in Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106.
