Apple Lightning Connector



Among the many innovations introduced alongside Apple's immensely popular iPhone 5, none was quite so divisive as the Lightning cable and adapter. Lightning follows--ironically enough--Thunderbolt, the ubiqitous thirty-pin system common among all previous iPhones, iPods, iPads, and their various accessories. Understandably, customers were more than a little irritated at the switch, but the new design boasts a number of significant improvements:

  • Unlike it's predeccesor, Lightning cables sport reversible connections.
  • Lightning cables operate on the USB 3.0 platform, allowing for faster data transmission.
  • The new design is signficantly smaller, facilitating the smaller dimensions of the newest generation of Apple products.
