If youre really impatient, and want to use a reversible USB plug Lightning cable right now, weve got some good news. You can purchase a cable with the handy feature from accessory maker Truffol now.
The cord is available in white, and will set you back $9.99. More than likely it isnt Apple-certified, so buyer beware on that front. It is one-meter long, the same length as Apples own Lightning cable.
It can also support 2.4 amps of charging, which will juice up an iPad Air at full speed.
With a reversible USB connector, users will be able to insert the plug into any computer or other device without having to worry about the correct orientation. The cable will apparently work with any existing USB port.
One week ago, the first images leaked suggesting that the next-generation iPhone will ship with a similar Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector. Prolific leaker Sonny Dickson then took to Twitter on Monday with even more images of the cable.
The “iPhone 6″ is expected to be announced at a special media event on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
