Apple has won a patent for a hybrid DisplayPort/USB 3.0 Dock Connector, according to Patently Apple.

Apple has just won a patent for an all-new Hybrid DisplayPort/USB 3.0 high speed connector. This new and extremely slim connector will work on all iOS devices like the iPod and eventually work its way through Apple's entire hardware lineup. Apple has just introduced another high-speed connector called Thunderbolt and we know that they're also working on a new fiber optic based connector for the future. Yet this latest hybrid connector looks like a winner and one that we might see come to market later this year in handhelds or in 2012 when Intel Macs debut with USB 3.0.

The patent was originally filed in Q3 2009 and credits Jason Sloey, Brian Lynch and Stephen Zadesky as the inventors.
