Well, look what we have here. I discovered this through browsing on Amazon.com. :)
You can now get an AmazonBasics Lightning-compatible cable for only $14.99.
When I upgrade to a future iPad/iPhone with the Lightning connector I am going to grab a couple of these cables. I have a few of the AmazonBasics 30-pin cables for my iPad (3rd) and iPhone 4S - they work perfectly. So, I trust the quality of this new Lightning-compatible cable from them.
