By Andrew EwersApple TV has been getting a new Lightning cable recently, but the new model has been limited to US customers.
It looks like Apple has switched to Lightning-to-USB3 and USB-to USB3-A adapters for US customers as well, but it’s not the same as what we saw with Apple’s original Lightning cable.
Here’s a quick rundown on the differences between the new Lightning to USB3 and Lightning to Lightning to MicroUSB adapters:The USB-2 to Lightning adapter is only compatible with USB-3 cables, but you can also plug in USB-1 to USB-4 cables.
If you plug in a USB-5 cable, you won’t be able to charge the new iPhone X or Apple Watch Series 3, but all three models will work.
The USB3 to Lightning cable will work with any Lightning-equipped iPad or iPad Mini.
It’s compatible with the new iPad Pro 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the new 12.7-inch iPads, which are the only devices Apple is targeting for a new US version of its Lightning cable adapter.
The Lightning- to USB2 adapter is compatible with Lightning-powered Apple TV, iPad and Mac.
It is also compatible with Macs with Lightning ports.
The cable can also be used to plug in an Apple Watch.
The new cable will only work with Mac computers with Thunderbolt ports, and Apple TV will be the only Apple TV product that can connect to the new Apple TV adapter.
