What is the lightning on the 5th generation ipod

1 Answer from the Community

  • Best Answer:

    The "lightning" is a new type of connector that is going to replace the 30-pin adapter that the later Apple devices have installed in them. It is much smaller, apparently transfers data faster, and is reversible, which means you can plug it in upside-down. It is now on the iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPod touch 5th Gen, and iPad Nano 7th Gen.
