    Just a word of warning. The recesses in the top of my new lightening to USB cable are far deeper than normal usb cables. I just had to pry mine out of my apple wired keyboard by shoving a piece of plastic into the port to disengage the teeth. No idea if it's widespread, but there's a couple of threads on the apple support forums about it. If it gets stuck, don't yank it!!!

    I noticed this on my iMac yesterday; almost destroyed my computer trying to get it out.

    I read this as "Warning-Lightning cable STRUCK" and I chuckled.
