The 5W USB power adaptor is more rounded and also has groves on each side that are said to offer a better grip. This could mean that Apple is looking at applying this design to power adaptors shipped to other countries as well. The question of authenticity does crop up, but the adaptor in the photo carries Apple s Designed by Apple in California signature as well as the usual technical information.

Apple has faced a few problems with the current adaptor design with issues like overheating and had to introduce an exchange program for the faulty chargers. The program was initiated in 37 countries around the world including India.

The Weibo user has also posted a photo of the Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector, which could mean that the new adaptor is optimized for the reversible USB connector. We have already seen photos and a video of the new Lightning cable, which is likely to be launched alongside the iPhone 6 on September 9.

Apple is expected to take the wraps off the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone 6 on September 9. However, due to a last minute design change in the display, the iPhone 6 launch could be delayed or be available in extremely limited stocks initially.
