A few days back, we informed you records (read: dripped details) of a case that Apple’s new iPhone 6 will ship with a reversible Lightning cable, in that the cable will be pluggable into a USB port regardless up.

During that time, it was unpredictable whether the wires will really have the upcoming iPhone or a later version. Today, a variety of pictures for the brand-new Lightning cord retail boxes have been leaked that program that the brand-new Lightning wire may be closer compared to it earlier seemed.

The images come from uSwitch and have actually been proven by the infamous (and reliable) tipster Sonny Dickson, and show plainly that the new “reimagined’ Lightning wire is in fact reversible. Apple’s license filing details that this step is being required to decrease individual aggravation, whilst minimizing the possibilities for unexpected damage that can happen by trying to connect the cable television in the wrong way.


I have actually claimed this previously as well, that Apple has actually been recognized to repair small nuisances that afflict the user encounter. For a company that has actually always been concentrated on supplying the most effective individual encounter, it goes a long method to show its dedication towards its customers.

The Lightning cable television was introduced with the iPhone 5 for the very first time, where Apple relocated from the 30-pin connecter to a reversible (from the tool’s perspective) Lightning port, with faster information transfer rates. The step was mostly welcomed, also though it saw objection in that a lot of older accessories were left ineffective. The situation isn’t similar this time around around, nevertheless, so we do not expect to view any type of fallback besides a good customer response.





Apple’s new iPhone version is anticipated to land following month, with the company probably set to announce the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 on September 9, complied with by availability in a number of weeks time. Since there are visiting be two versions of the iPhone this time – – the various other one with a larger, 5.5-inch display in phablet type element – – the release dates could vary. With September just around the corner, it’s even more fun to hypothesize and attempt to think just what we’ll see when the main news is made.
