One of the rumors related to the iPhone 12 is that it may only come from the charging cable in the box. In this way, Apple saves itself from supplying the plugs that connect to the current. However, the charging cable will be different. According to the leaked images, the charging cable will be braided allowing greater security and, above all, entanglement when it is wound up is prevented. The design could be similar to new cable that Apple has released in its online store. It is a Thunderbolt 3 Pro cab of 2 meters with a price of 149 euros.

Braiding arrives at the new Thunderbolt 3 Pro

Featuring a black braided design that prevents tangling when rolled up, this 2m cable offers data transfer via Thunderbolt 3 at up to 40Gb / s speed, up to 10Gb / s speed via 2nd USB 3.1 generation, DisplayPort video output (HBR3) and load up to 100 W.

The use of these two meters of Thunderbolt cable is to connect a Mac to Thunderbolt 3 devices such as Apple’s Pro Display XDR monitors, bases or hard drives. The technical characteristics are already discussed in the product description. However, it should be noted its power of up to 100 W, its braided design that we discussed at the beginning of the article and the possibility of connecting up to six Thunderbolt 3 devices in a chain. It also has DisplayPort video output, compared to other Thunderbolt 3 cables within the Apple store.

The price of this new cable is 149 euros and shipping times on the Apple Store Online are quite low. So if you are interested it is likely that in a couple of days you will have it in your house.
