    Anyone know if there are any of these on the market at the moment or in the bear future? Honestly think that with apples premium price and quality USB 3.0 or at the very least thunderbolt should be available now...
    I don't know about u guys but syncing and transferring purchases can be a great hassle especially when ure restoring... A USB 3.0 cable would cut this time by half or about 65%

    It wouldn't. The iPhone currently doesn't even max out the USB 2.0 transfer speeds. It's limited by various hardware bottlenecks, mostly in the flash memory chips used. USB3 syncing would have those same limitations.

    mostly all phones use the cheapest flash like those used on thumbdrives. if the bottleneck is in the flash, USB 3.0 wouldn't make any differences.
