    How about I throw out this crazy idea, but maybe, just maybe you could just use the new USB format -_-.
    Apple sure like to create useless solutions to problems that have already been solved.

    The invertible USB plug doesn't actually solve the main issue with a USB plug. The problem is it doesn't plug in nicely even when plugged in the correct way. If it did, you wouldn't hear people complaining that they "tried that way already but this time it worked". Happens *all the time*. Someone tries it one way, doesn't seem to go in, flips it, tries again, doesn't work, flips back and it goes in this time.

    The Lightning connector is a much connector. Note. I am no big Apple fan but credit where credit is due. This connector just works.
