Images of the original iPad revealed

The original Apple iPad was undoubtedly a major step forward for the tablet market of the time – but the first generation model nearly had one very different feature.

According to prototype images obtained by tech collector Giulio Zompetti, the original iPad, at some stage, included two 30-pin connector ports; one at the bottom, and an extra one added to the left side of the device.

The final product ended up scrapping the additional port, but these images nonetheless suggest Apple had planned to introduce a dual dock system with its inaugural iPad model.

iPads haven’t used 30-pin connector ports since the introduction of Apple’s Lightning technology in 2012, but it’s nice to learn that the original device might have supported concurrent charging.
