Braided Apple Lighting to USB-C cables appear in black and white

Braided Apple Lighting to USB-C cables appear in black and white”

Recent rumors have stated that Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 models could ship with a new braided fabric Lightning to USB-C cable, and now prominent leaker L0vetodream has shared images of what is allegedly the new cable.

The braided design isn't something new in the Apple world, as the Cupertino-based tech giant already offers braided Thunderbolt, Mac Pro Lightning, and HomePod power cables to customers. Apple in 2019 included a USB-C to Lightning cable with the higher-end Pro iPhone models to go along with a USB-C power adapter, while the more affordable iPhone 11 came with a standard USB-A to Lightning cable. According to speculation, the new Lighting cables will measure 1.05m just like the current in-box one but their diameter will be significantly larger at 3.04mm.

Of course, there's no confirmation that this is the actual cable that would come with the iPhone 12 in the fall, but such a design does make sense, especially if Apple does want to make the switch to a braided design. While the leaker has posted photos of braided Lightning cables in both black and white, the former is presumably meant to be shipped with the iMac Pro. No wonder then that third-party braided Lightning cables are among the most popular iPhone accessories out there. In addition to the images, the account says that the "iPhone 12 series will be equipped with USB-C to Lightning braided data cable".
