iPhone 6 to ship with reversible lightning to USB cable?
With the of iPhone 5 Apple for the first time since the introduction of iPod changed the charging connector on its mobile devices. The iPhone 5 featured a lighting connector which was smaller and also added the convenience of not knowing which side up, as the connector is reversible. Apple’s executive in support of the new charging connector said that it was going to be standard for the next ten years.
Latest rumours point to evidence that Apple is working on new iPhone 6 charging cable. Sonny Dickson, who is known to share information about Apple’s future product roadmap, posted a photo of the new cable on his Twitter account.
A new smaller lighting cable allowed Apple to make the sixth-gen iPhone thinner and its reversibility made charging your device even easier. Now, it seems that the company may release new lighting to USB cable with the USB port being reversible which will make it very convenient to connect the cable without failing the first few times trying to figure out which direction is correct.
Apple is certainly not the first when it comes to reversible USB cables. There are many third party cables and flash drives that offer reversible ports. However, it will be interesting to see if this rumour turns out to be true.
iPhone 6 is expected to be announced during a special media event on September 9th. It will be made available in two screen sizes 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch variations. The high end model is rumoured to feature sapphire glass. Other features could include NFC, 1GB RAM and better battery life.
