Analyst Says Apple is Unlikely to Ship Reversible USB Cable With iPhone 6

Despite multiple leaks and patent filings, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is unlikely to ship a reversible USB cable and new charger alongside the iPhone 6.

"We don't expect the USB power adapter and Lightning cable for iPhone 6 to have significant design changes," Kuo wrote in a Monday morning note to investors, a copy of which was obtained by AppleInsider. Kuo cited "cost concerns and limited improvements to overall user experience that such changes would bring" before declaring the speculation "off the mark."

Leaked photos, video, packaging, and chargers for the reversible USB connector leaked last month.

The report from Kuo corroborates one from Moca.co who said it's an MFi-certified vendor working with Apple's main Lightning cable provider and that Apple hasn't placed any orders for the new cable yet.

Who gives a fvck about the cable, just as long as the iPhone 6 can transfer data at USB3.0 will be more important, especially if there is a 128GB model.

These analysts are like weather forecasters. They can be right once in awhile, and still keep their jobs.
