If you’ve been holding out on buying a new iPhone or iPad charger, Apple may soon be getting a big bang for its buck.
According to a report from Business Insider, the Cupertino-based company has just announced that it is working on a new version of its Lightning-powered Lightning cable, one that will charge an iPad Pro.
The new cable will use a new type of aluminum, with an aluminum body that makes it lighter and thinner than its predecessors.
According the report, the new cable is going to be able to charge the iPad Pro at 60 percent efficiency.
That’s a lot more efficient than the existing cable, which was designed to charge an iPhone at 20 percent efficiency (a figure Apple hasn’t disclosed).
The new Lightning cable will be available in two colors, with a blue and a red one, and will reportedly come in a range of speeds.
Apple will also be releasing a new Lightning charger that will work with any Lightning-enabled device.
The company will be offering this new version in three colors, including the blue and red.
It should be interesting to see how the new Lightning-based cable performs in terms of efficiency, as well as the battery life.
