Why do they need a dock at all? Wouldn't it be more Apple to just get rid of it and go with inductive charging and wireless sync and Airplay. Surprised no one has taken the step yet.
Having a dock connector affords them a massive accessory & customization ecosystem. I can't imagine they would let that go lightly - unless they have a replacement in mind.
A whole new set of accessories with charging plates integrated I would imagine. The iPlate (they may be more imaginative with the title but I doubt it) would be a fast seller I am sure. Speaker docks that sync and charge whilst letting you play your tracks just by resting your device on top. Possibilities are endless as always.
