Making third-party Lightning connectors
Apple's new Lightning connector means big business for officially licensed accessory makers, but even for third-party manufacturers without the support of Cupertino, production marches on. As MacRumors reports, one such unauthorized accessory company called iPhone5mod is offering a glimpse inside its new production facility where dozens of hands are busy mimicking the Lightning standard.
The company already offers a host of accessories for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, using what it claims is now a nearly identical copy of Apple's own Lightning connectors. You can check out a short video tour of iPhone5mod's production line below, or see the full gallery of images on the company's website.
