One iPhone 6 rumor that didnt pan out last year was the introduction of a Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector. Despite images to the contrary, the cable Apple included with both new iPhone models didnt offer the functionality.
But Griffin is coming to the rescue. One of the many new products the accessory manufacturer has unveiled at CES 2015 in Las Vegas is an Apple-certified Lightning cable with a reversible connector.
So that means users can plug in the cable to any full-sized USB connector in any orientation. Thats just like Apples Lightning plug.
Im glad to see Griffin step in and offer their own unique take on the cable. Even though its $10 more than Apples option, it looks to be a high-quality premium choice. And the reversible USB plug is definitely a plus.
The LightRunner is designed to help keep athletes visible at night.
One of the other notable new products introduced by the company includes the LightRunner neoprene armband. As suggested by the name, it contains built-in LED lights to give runners higher visibility in the dark. An adjustable Velcro enclosure can fit arms up to 18-inches in circumference.
Arriving sometime this spring and retailing for $39.99, it can hold an iPhone 6, or any other smartphone with a 4.7-inch or smaller screen.
Finally, Im probably most excited about the CarConnections Pack for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Instead of having to deal with a mess of tangled cables in my car, the systems dual clip holds the included AUX cable and PowerJolt car charger in perfect alignment to plug into either handset.
Instead of fishing around in my car to find the correct cables, the clip will keep both the power and audio cables together. That will be a huge help for me. And I suspect Im not the only one. Akit for either the iPhone 6oriPhone 6 Plus will set you back $39.99 when it arrives next month.
