What was more unexpected was the size of the Lightning connector. The marketing images don’t quite do justice to how small it is, and the size isn’t the end of the improvements.
It’s really small — blew me away when I saw it t first. The connector actually seems delicate, but at the same time very strong. More than that though is how fantastic the phone looks when plugged in now, whereas the dock connector was bulky and ugly, the Lightning connector is sexy and sleek. I love this connector.
