No redesigned power adapter or reversible Lightning cable on Apple's 'iPhone 6,' says analyst

Apple’s 2014 iOS devices won’t feature a redesigned USB power adapter and reversible Lightning cable as once believed. This assessment comes from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose comments were first posted by AppleInsider.

On Monday, Kuo told investors: “We don’t expect the USB power adapter and Lightning cable for iPhone 6 to have significant design changes.” He called speculation to the contrary “off the mark.”

Late last month, leaked images and videos out of China suggested that Apple would introduce a new power adapter and a reversal Lightning cable for the next iPhone.

With a reversible USB connector, users are able to insert the plug into any computer or other device without having to worry about the correct orientation.

All this speculation is going to end one way or another very soon. Apple is holding a media event on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
