That is why they updated the ipad 3 when they did, because if they didn't then people would buy the ipad mini due to it being newer, and the ipad 3. So they didn't wan the current top of the range ipad product to have an old dock connector and older chip, which would make it look old compared to the iphone and ipad mini. Now all their current range of new products have the new connector. Older gen products have the old one.
Right. That makes sense.
