Patent confirms Apple’s interest in bilateral USB 6



We have already reported that Apple , may show a two-way cable Lightning USB (data based on emerging picture). Well, the company’s interest in this development confirms the patent application. On the Internet a document that describes the USB-connector, which could be inserted into the connector by either party.

Patent adds confidence that the product still happen (and save time users who sometimes forget which side you need to “stick» USB). The reason that it took to develop a “two-way fork” – “the need to reduce the wear on the connector and the frustration of users,” says the paper.


However, the application for the patent was filed only in February, then, perhaps, the yield is not so close – especially since a number of sources calls leaked photos and videos supposedly already pre-assembled cables with double-sided USB Lightning, though real, but depicting products made by other companies, not by Apple.

In addition, and this is important, according to the patent, the specification of the cable is not entirely compliant with USB – this, according to the source, may also delay the implementation of the technology.

However, one way or another, to the emergence of a very useful development yet everything is little hope.
