Dickson has been a solid source of Apple leaks in the past and also provided photos of the cable's retail box to uswitch yesterday.
Notably, Apple has filed for a REVERSIBLE USB CONNECTOR patent which details how the connector works.
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 expected to debut the cable alongside the iPhone 6. Take a look at the video below and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
