The iPhone 6 might not come with a reversible Lightning cable
Over the past week or so, we told you that Apple might be prepping a reversible Lightning to USB cable for its upcoming devices. Without a doubt, this rumor has probably made a lot of Apple fans happy. The person who originated the initial rumor, Sonny Dickson, about the reversible Lightning charging cable added even more fuel to the fire by releasing a demo video of said accessory.

However, a new rumor coming straight from, one of Apple's numerous 3rd-party retailers, suggests that the Apple iPhone 6 won't come with such a handy Lightning cable, as the latter simply won't be ready to ship along with the greatly-anticipated Apple flagship this fall. also said that it has already sent samples of the accessory for approval to Cupertino, but the latter has kept mum. The retailer also said that the production process of these cables has remained stagnant ever since. also revealed that a new power adapter will be coming alongside the iPhone 6 pretty soon. Unlike previous iterations, this one will be able to output as much as 2A (similar to the charging adapters of a number of Android devices), which will reportedly decrease the charging time of the Apple flagship by up to 30%.

As usual, such a rumor should be taken with as much salt as the FDA normally recommends. We will find out if the Lightning cable for the iPhone 6 will indeed be reversible on September 9, most probably.
