Evidence is mounting that Apple is working on a reversible USB cable that can be plugged in either way to your computer or USB port. It is all but confirmed that the technology is going to exist at some point. The question is whether it will show up this fall when Apple launches a new line of iPad and iPhone devices.
Earlier this week, we heard the rumor that Apple might have a universally reversible Lightning cable ready for launch with the next-generation of iPhone and iPad. Sonny Dickson even showed off some fairly convincing pictures on his Twitter feed. Today, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published another patent that goes into more detail about how Apple plans on executing their reversible USB cable.
