Video Shows Apple's Lightning Cable With Reversible USB Connector [Watch]

Sonny Dickson has just leaked a video that shows Apple's new Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector.

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, or RSS for updates.

Too short video.

Fake, if it is reversible why does the cable disappear completely in mid of video. And why would apple put the USB logo on just one side? For a reversible USB it makes no sense to put the logo on one side. Dick-Son!!!!
