Rumor Has It Apple Is About to Fix the USB Cable’s Most Annoying Problem

Sonny Dickson, the man who provided the sapphire glass screen  rumored to feature at the front of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6, has a new hardware revelation about the unannounced new phone: a reversible USB cable. Thanks to its symmetrical design, the Lightning connector is already capable of being plugged into an iPhone or iPad in any orientation, and now Apple’s apparently addressing the other end of the cable as well. The thinned-out middle section of the USB plug is said to have contacts on both sides, making it possible to connect without having it “the right way” up. Such reversible USB cables can already be found on sale from third-party accessory makers, plus there’s the imminent Type-C USB standard  that will shrink the size of the universal connector everyone uses while also making it symmetrical.
