Is it just me or is the usb cable that comes with the 4S longer than the one that came with the 4?
It's the same length as the other one I have here... which I think is the one that came with my 4 (but I also had a 3GS and I have an iPad so cables may have gotten mixed up).
It is a little longer then the iPad 2 cable.
In my household we have an:
iPhone 4 x 2
iPod touch x 3
iPod nano x 4
iPod Classic x2
So we have an entire collection of White USB cables (14 total), and none of them are the same size (in comparison to each other), but the difference can be measured in centimeters (so nothing dramatic).
That dang cable is never long enough
Sometimes I think Apple gets some sick type of thrill over charging such an obscene price for a few inches of cable.
It's the only smart phone I've ever owned that comes from a company so successful, yet so greedy. Not only do they overcharge for the cable, they offer nothing longer.
That's another sick thrill, screwing the customer via a lack of options.
Apple.. what a bizarre group
Yup, it's too bad they won't let others manufacture cheaper or longer or more durable cables...
You can get USB extensions for pretty cheap on Ebay. I got like a 5 foot one about two years ago and it hasn't failed me yet. Perfect for bed side.
I have 2 of these extension cables and they work perfectly. I bought one originally for my iPhone and then I bought a 2nd one when I got my iPad. hasn't failed yet.
But yes...an extra 6 inches of cable wouldn't kill Apple. lol.
Not true that apple offers nothing longer. You can buy the extension thing that comes with the macbooks
