Lots of info for you to peruse.

 

And the direct link to Intel Thunderbolt-certified devices:

https://thunderbolttechnology.net/products

 

and there's this:

 

"Industry Support

Several innovative companies have announced Thunderbolt™-enabled products, or plans to support Thunderbolt™ in upcoming products, including Apple Inc., Promise Technology, Inc., and LaCie. Intel is working with the industry to enable a variety of Thunderbolt™-enabled products, including computers, displays, high-speed data storage devices, audio/video devices, and more. See the latest.

Still waiting for anything from you that indicates Apple does it's own Thunderbolt certifications, bypassing Intel. The Thunderbolt product page would be evidence that it's Intel doing the final certifying.

Bottom line: Apple could have an extended license from Intel that allows them to include a TB controller in their ARM-based iDevices but there is no proof of that and there are plenty of reasons why Apple wouldn't use that tech over USB, as mostly noted by Anand Tech.

Personally i think it's unlikely even though I hope they figured out how to use it and make it viable. One reason I'd like it is for the iPad charging as power over TB is much higher than power over USB.

Are you speaking to myself or Mario in this case?  I'm very confused as to where your venom is spewed at this time....

You needn't worry about appearance or scratches when you should be protecting a $700 phone with some kind of case or skin!  Additionally, a case will customize the dull, plain phone into any style imaginable.
