I agree 100%. As someone who recently switched from Android to iPhone 5, the lightning connector is such a massive improvement in usability it's actually kind of hilarious. For folks who have been a long time Apple customer and have multiple gadgets they wished to grandfather in, that's tough luck. That's just the price you pay in the technology world where some stuff will be rendered obsolete. The lightning connector is so much better in terms of plugging your iPhone in. I can't be the only one at night in bed who plugs their iPhone into the charger in the dark. Rather than hassling and twisting and finding the right way, it's a simple plug and snap. Done. One of the underrated changes in the iPhone in my opinion.
