There is certainly that side benefit, but I really don't think this was Apple's intention in removing the accessory port. Increased third-party accessory sales do not benefit Apple in a significant enough way for them to care.

Truth is, I don't think Apple really cared much about it either way. The accessory port had to go as part of the new engineering design, and the marketing people probably just gave it a big shrug.
