Closeup: Apple Store iPad Smart Sign, Black Ribbon Cable
Closeup of the thin black ribbon power cable of the new iPad smart sign at Apple Store 2.0.
Photo of the iPad black ribbon dock connector by ObamaPacman. Looks to be 1mm or thinner and covers the dock connector, providing it power (and also alarm functions supposedly). It’s barely visible. Magical!
The regular white dock connector goes to the back of the acrylic, and gets connected to the black ribbon under the center of the iPad, which goes to the dock connector.
