Even if it is true that Apple changed the port... there will be adapters. About the only things that will be obsolete are cases (which are regularly obsoleted by the design changes), and the external battery products that connect right against the phone.

A bunch of rukus about nothing.
Yes there may be adapters, but those adapters may not work too well in anything that is intended to dock with something like an ipod or iphone, partly because of the physical configuration and how most of those docks are designed to form fit a device with that port and the one with an adapter might just fall out, and partly because such an adapter rarely offers 100% compatibility in 100% of situations (here's a random example of another adapter, a parallel port adapter to USB. Those don't work with a lot of printers and other applications)

And those issues and more are also part of the ruckus (did you read any of the articles about potential problems with an adapter?)

But while I can understand it, I don't have much sympathy. Most apple fans run at the chance to buy overpriced apple products, and they will run at the chance to buy overpriced next gen accessories to go with it.
