pretty much this. especially when usb 3.0 is faster anyway. it seems like mini usb has been pretty standard for smartphones for awhile.

if lightning really does double as hdmi potentially that could be cool though. but honestly i'd prefer just having a standard hdmi port anyway.

if they want to implement hdmi into a single connector, they can easily make a custom usb port that takes both usb and hdmi

So Apple just got their butt handed to them?

lol @ Apple...

 

 

You can buy a microUSB adapter anywhere in any country for $10~$20 bucks. U can borrow a friends.. a strangers..  you can hook your phone to ANY computer.

 

Apple is proprietary..  ur alone in the closet, buying specialized cables that pay dividends to a dead man.

your crappy USB charger charges as slow as a snail, this awesome cable charges ridiculously fast like lightning, thats the reason why it's called lightning in the first place.

for its performance, it's really cheap and totally worth it

Thats cool I guess, but Apple said they were only going to be the initial exclusive supplier, so they would have to release the design eventually.
