The iPhone 6 is still largely a mystery, although there have been plenty of leaks that give us clues about the kinds of things that we can expect. The most recent leak has shown us something that no one was expecting, however.

Many people in the industry point out that when Apple makes a change, the rest of the world follows. That is why it is so interesting that they have apparently redesigned the way USB works. Their own version of USB technology, which is believed to be packaged with the iPhone 6 and based on a patent that was filed in 2013, is entirely reversible, eliminating an annoyance that almost every technology user is familiar with.

This reversible USB cable is out of line with the USB Implementers Forum, although it is not something that many will complain about. This new cable is about the size of current Micro USB cables and delivers speeds of up to 10Gbps. The only problem is that it will not fit in existing USB ports, which are included on all computers currently. Much like the introduction of the Lighting port, this could be the source of a small controversy, although Apple typically does what it sees as best regardless.

This change was not something that people saw coming, showing that there might be a few more surprises when the iPhone 6 is officially released. That release date is still a bit of a mystery, although it is believed to be coming at the end of 2014.
