Apple rolls out shorter Lightning-to-USB cable
Apple has released a new, shorter Lightning-to-USB cable at its <A href="http://macnn.com/store/">online store</a>. The <a href="http://store.apple.com/us/product/ME291ZM/A/lightning-to-usb-cable">0.5m version</a> is half the length of the standard cable, but nevertheless has an identical $19 pricetag. The cable is shipping in one to two business days.<br /><br />Lightning was introduced last September, and is now the standard connector format on iOS devices. Third-party Lightning cables are relatively rare, however, since an authenticator chip is needed to make them compatible with iOS hardware. With the older 30-pin format, it was possible for vendors to quickly copy Apple's design with or without the company's approval.
