Actually, Phil Schiller talked about this as someone asked when they were doing Q&A during the conference.

Direct quote
"Passbook does the kinds of things customers need today."
I'd still prefer it to be there, to be honest.

Also about wireless charging
"Having to create another device you have to plug into the wall is actually, for most situations, more complicated."

I get that, I don't even care about it.

Reason for new connector
The new sleek dimensions of the new iPhone and iPod touch simply wouldn't have been attainable with the nine-year-old component. "This is the new connector for many years to come."

New port connector doesn't bother me at all, it was rumored for a while now, didn't bother me then. I'm welcome to changes. Now I don't have to worry about plugging in the connector wrong.
