Apple is rolling out a new Lightning cable for its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones, and it’s an entirely different cable than the one Apple uses for the iPad Air.
The new cable, dubbed the Lightning-to-USB-C Lightning Cable, will work with any USB-C to Lightning cable.
Apple has confirmed the new cable is compatible with Lightning-equipped Apple iPhones and iPads, including the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, as well as the new MacBook Pro.
Apple says the cable will also work with USB-A-to USB-B chargers.
The new cable has two connectors: a Lightning connector for charging the iPhone and iPad, and a Lightning-USB connector for connecting the iPhone to a power adapter.
Apple is calling the connector the “USB-to-” connector, but it’s not actually a USB-to connector.
Apple is not selling this new cable for the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, but there are other USB-c to Lightning cables that have been available for years.
This new cable’s connector will likely be similar.
It looks like Apple will not be releasing the new Lightning Cable with Lightning charging in the future, as the cable is currently only compatible with the iPhone 5s and 5c, as opposed to the larger iPhone 6, 6s, 6+, 6s Pro, 6S, 6 Plus, and 6S Plus.
Apple also plans to release a new version of the Lightning cable later this year.
