I bought a new iPad and still have my iPad 1. Inserting the cable into the 30 pin slot on the iPad 1 is really simple and doesn't require much force. However, it seems that I'm missing something in the proper way to insert the same cable into new iPad. Is there some sort of technique to use, like inserting at an angle? I tried (gently, of course) lots of different angles and even when I get it inserted its a bit of a struggle. I've used both the supplied Apple cable and my Belkin aftermarket cable with the same issue. Mahalo for any help.
