Apple’s Vision Pro headset is hiding yet another XL Lightning plug

We thought the 12-pin plug connecting the Vision Pro to its battery pack was the ultimate boss of Lightning cables — however there’s one which’s even greater. Hiding inside the strap on the Vision Pro headset is what I can solely name a Mega Lightning plug.

This XL cable seems to fit into the facet of the headset beneath the Vision Pro’s comfortable band. That makes it a bit extra inconspicuous than the big Lightning plug found yesterday, which you’ll come out by sticking a SIM removing software into the Vision Pro’s battery pack.

And now we’ve discovered not one, however two additional massive Lightning cables hiding within the $3,499 Vision Pro — even when they’re not meant for individuals to truly use.
