Ever wanted to plug your phone into the wall and be completely immobile until it is charged? Well, that time has come. 

Along with the release of the new iPhone 5, Apple is releasing the first ever six-inch charger. This new device not only takes up less space, but also lets your phone dangle freely from the electrical outlet. 

Apple users all over are jazzed about the new cord. 

“I don’t have to worry about all that extra charging cable bunched up on the floor,” commented Harry Lindquist, an avid Apple consumer. “No one will ever be able to trip over my phone charger again!” 

The six-inch cable features a three-prong head on one end and Apple’s equivalent to a micro-USB on the other, just to switch things up a bit. The cord is extremely thin and is barely noticeable against a white wall. In addition to its lower visibility, the cable is also very impractical. 

Charging your phone closer to the wall will eventually make you an outcast as you shy away from socialization in any given room (unless they like to hang out near walls). This will intentionally force you to use your new iPhone 5 to stay in touch with people in the same room. 

Although this six-inch charger cable may seem like a step backward, most people go with the flow because Apple makes it and Apple is awesome. 

Apple users everywhere now have the convenience to charge their phone anywhere… six inches away from a wall.
