9to5Mac shares some new details about Apple’s updates planned for today, outlining some of the marketing terms the company appears to be using for aspects of its new devices. Among the details: First, Apple is said to have been referring to its new dock connector as “Lightning” internally, and that branding is now said to be the public name for the feature as well. The term is suggestive of speed, and it seems possible that the cables may allow for faster data transfer than existing hardware. Apple is also said to be introducing several variations of the adapter for using new devices with cables and accessories bearing the old dock connector standard, including a direct clip-on adapter and one with a short cable. The second item relates to new headphones that appeared earlier this month in a leaked video, and today’s report indicates that they will carry an “Earpod” name.
