Apple Could Ship iPhone 12 With Braided USB-C To Lightning Cable

According to leaked images made public by ChargerLAB, iPhone 12 might be shipped with Lightning to USB-C cable with a braided design for durability

According to leaked images made public by ChargerLAB, iPhone 12 might be shipped with Lightning to USB-C cable with a braided design.

The braided look is a departure from the non-fabric design of existing cables. Apple has never used this look on iPads or iPhones. However, it does ship black braided Lightning cable and braided Thunderbolt Pro cable with Mac Pro, as well as braided power cables for the HomePod.

Braided cables are usually more durable than the usual rubber-coated ones. From the leaked images, we can see that the rumored new design looks similar to what Apple did for the Lightning to USB-C cables.

ChargerLAB, the channel that leaks the images has been right about Apple’s upcoming plans before so we have reason to believe it might be right this time too. It also said the new look will come with the company’s iPhone 12 lineup.

According to ChargerLAB, the new cables feature Apple-certified design. Their length is 1.05 meters and thickness is 3.04 mm.

It also said the USB-C to Lightning cables are used to fast charge iPhones, offering 50% more power in half an hour plugged in. They can be used in iPads as well.

Apart from the braided design, the cables launched with iPhone 12 also have 8 silver contacts, which can further add to their resistance to corrosion and damage.

This change is expected to be warmly welcomed as Apple has received lots of complaints in the last few years about the fragility of its charging cables.

Recently, we have heard rumors that Apple will not ship iPhone 12 with EarPod or a power adapter to reduce cost and sell a 20W power adapter separately.
