It is a smaller connector which when compared to Dock connector, has only 8 pins which makes it much smaller in size than Dock which has 30 pins. When comparing with USB, it is little bigger but not that much. Another addition in Lightning, besides being small in size, is it’s built in processor. As it can be connected in both directions i.e. right way or upside down, so when connected to a device, the processor detects the direction of the connection and then reroutes the electric signal so that the device works properly in either case.
