Frayed charging cables could soon be a thing of the past – at least for Apple users iPhone 11 Pro Max

Apple’s proprietary charging cables have long held a reputation for fraying easily, but the Cupertino company could finally be set to address the problem if a new patent submission is anything to go by.

The patent, first discovered by AppleInsider, sees the iPhone and Mac maker freely admit that it “is well known that bending of the cable near the termination point may cause unwanted strain on the wire connections, which may lead to cable failure.”
