When someone tweaks an existing design to make it infinitely better, we can all rejoice, right? However, getting people’s hopes up and then pulling the rug out from under them is just cruel. Now I’m not saying that Apple promised anything, but people were anticipating a reversible USB cable when the iPhone 6 launched and now it looks like that won’t happen. Boo!
Following the USB power adapter redesign rumors, word has it that Apple’s new reversible Lightning to USB cable may not be ready in time to ship with the iPhone 6! According to third-party Apple retailer Moca.co, Apple has yet to place orders for the reversible cable from its manufacturing partner. Moca.co is claiming that not only will the official cable miss the iPhone 6 launch, but it won’t even be available to consumers this year:
“We are informed by the Official Appointed Manufacturer of Apple that the new Reversible USB Cable will not be released together with upcoming iPhone 6 and Apple has not placed any order with them yet. Apple fans will not be able to get the MFi version of this revolutionary cable from Apple this year but that is not the end of the story.”
