New Report Claims Reversible USB Cables Won't Be Ready for iPhone 6
It was just over the weekend that we reported on a possible revamped USB power adapter for Apple’s next generation iPhone 6. However, sources are now claiming that the adapter may be ready in time, but the new lightning cable with a reversible USB connector won’t be. Third party Apple retailer, Moca.co, reported that the reversible cable has yet to even be ordered by Apple. According to Moca.co,
We are informed by the Official Appointed Manufacturer of Apple that the new Reversible USB Cable will not be released together with upcoming iPhone 6 and Apple has not placed any order with them yet. Apple fans will not be able to get the MFi version of this revolutionary cable from Apple this year but that is not the end of the story.
Are you excited for the next generation iPhone 6? We’re only 2 weeks away from Apple’s big announcement on September 9th.

I feel like apple asked for samples to go with a cheaper manufacturer. LOL

"Won't be ready"
Where does it say they won't be ready. It says Apple hasn't even ordered them. This isn't even new technology, reversible USB cables have existed for quite sometime, this is simply adding a lightning plug to the other end, it's really not a hard task nor is this cable "Revolutionary".
Do people realize you can already buy reversible USB cables? This "revolutionary" design look familiar to anyone? Tripp Lite 10ft USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Universal Reversible Cable M/M 10' - UR020-010 - USB Cables - CDW.com

I think Apple should also think of improving the quality of the lightning cable as the cable are easily damage.

So apple are abandoning the lightning cable? More bloody cables to buy. Great. Lightning works well and micro USB feels shoddy as anything
