Can anyone tell me why Apple didn't use a magnetic connector for iOS devices like they do for the Macbooks? When I heard Apple was coming out with a new "Lightning" connector to replace the 30 pin model I was sure it would be like the magnetic Magsafe connector used on Macbooks (I realize they just charge but there's no reason it couldn't sync as well). Knowing that there could have been a magnetic connector that just effortlessly clicks in, the lightning connector has been a huge disappointment. How is it any better than the 30-pin connector except for being able to put it in either way? At least the 30 pin connector could slip in and out without much force, the Lightning connector clicks in so tight it makes iphone/ipad docks entirely worthless - you don't want to have to grab the dock, hold it down, and forcefully pluck your device out of it...you want to be able to easily slide it right out (or in). A connection like the Magsafe would be a huge improvement. Frankly i can't think of a better way to connect a charge/sync cable to an iphone or ipad. Is there a technical reason why Apple didn't use a magnetic connector like the Magsafe on the iphone/ipad? It really bothers me that Apple has the technology available in other products, finally decided to replace the old 30-pin connector, but didn't use their superior tech. Yes, yes, I know children are starving in africa dying from aids covered in tsetse flies as they have their hands chopped off by religious nuts, but problems and annoyances all come on a sliding scale and this forum is about Apple products.
