The site posted photos of the new cables that are reportedly from Foxconn. Taking a look at the images below you see a USB connector that is in the middle of the metal casing. Apple's current USB cable has a connector that's attached to the bottom of the metal casing.
Corroborating the report is a patent that Apple filed for a reversible USB connector.
Embodiments can provide reversible or dual orientation USB plug connectors for mating with standard USB receptacle connectors, e.g., a standard Type A USB receptacle connector. Accordingly, the present invention may be compatible with any current or future electronic device that includes a standard USB receptacle connector. USB plug connectors according to the present invention can have a 180 degree symmetrical, double orientation design, which enables the plug connector to be inserted into a corresponding receptacle connector in either of two intuitive orientations.
Apple is also said to be preparing an upgraded lightning connector that would allow high-definiton playback for audio accessories.
