With a less than a month until the launch of the new iPhone, today, we get to know the fact the Apple could bring a USB cable with duoble-sided connectors. This USB interface will arrive as part of the USB 3.1 Type-C spec, but there’s still a lot of time untill this technology to arrive on our phones.
This new leak suggest that Apple could release a new Lightning cable for the iPhone 6 that would give it its own reversible USB connector. Without going with an all-new layout, Apple seems to try and create a reversible USB plug that fits into existing Standard-A ports, like you can see in the picture below.
In order that such a system to work with existing USB ports, the plug must have a flexible contact in the middle. As you may know, one of the big selling points of Lighting was how it could help minimize wear. What do you think? Will Apple include such a Lightning cable in the iPhone 6 retail box?
