iPhones and other not only Apple equipment owners often face the problem of breaking the charging cable. After some time of using the cable at the base of the connector becomes thinner or cracks, the wire becomes not neat, and it is no safe anymore to use such charging.

Apple has decided to patent a new technology for charging cables, which will help to avoid such a breakdown. The patent application has already been sent to the relevant office in the United States.

The new technology is a construction of a sleeve that will serve as an insulating shell for the cable. Several materials used for the sleeve have different properties: a harder material for the outer layer and a softer one for the inner layer. This solution will reduce the load on the bending of the cable, without increasing its thickness. With all the innovations, the cable will not change its look in any way.
