The Rain-X site has a nice page that actually shows the different types of wiper connections:

The 2012-2013 Foci use the I&L connector and use a style of blade known as a 'beam blade', while prior models use a J-hook connector. For random trivia, the metal part of a traditional wiper blade that distributes pressure is called a whippletree.

I'll take random car trivia for $200, Alex!
