Serial leaker Sonny Dickson has posted a short video that shows off the new cable. The USB side is a welcome feature as it is shown to be plugged into a system, removed, flipped and plugged back in. It looks as though we won’t need three attempts to plug in the USB side anymore.
Also shown is a brief glimpse of a box at the beginning of the video, which features the words "Lightning to USB Cable" emblazoned on it. This may or may not be the box that Apple packages the cable in, but considering Dickson’s track record, we’re inclined to believe that it will be.
The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 are likely to pack some pretty neat features, but for now we’re quite happy to see a USB connection that doesn’t make us feel like fools!
