Apple's lightning charging cables that come with the Apple iPhone or iPad don't usually last too long so owners end up buying more than one lightning cable. Apple’s iPhones and iPads use their own Lightning connector for charging and transmission of data. You can purchase third-party cables, but they must be certified. If a cable wasn’t certified by Apple, you will typically see a warning message when you connect it.
Apple MFI Certification is important because non-certified lightning cables can be a hazard to a device. Counterfeit lightning cables can often get too hot causing damage to a device, and even destroy it. If you use an uncertified or knock-off Lightning cable, the following issues could occur: cable might become damaged, iOS device could become damaged, the connector end might not fit properly into your device, connector end might fall off, or you might not be able to charge your device.
What is Apple MFI Certification?
Apple offers an “MFi Certification Program.” “MFi” stands for “Made for iPhone,” “Made for iPad,” and “Made for iPod.”. The Lightning connector that iPhones, iPods and iPads have been using since 2012 is a proprietary connector created by Apple. Each lightning connector has a tiny authentication chip inside. This authentication chip communicates with your iPhone or iPad, which is how your device knows whether you’re using an Apple-approved cable or accessory, or one the manufacturer didn’t put through Apple’s certification program.
As part of the Apple certification approval process, a company must submit samples of their cables to Apple's independent testing facility to undergo rigorous mechanical, stress, and electrical tests. Cables made by Apple or affiliates via the Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad program (MFI) are designed to work dependably with Apple devices because they have the hardware that performs pin allocation and power management.When a company receives Apple MFi certification, it increases the likelihood that a product from that manufacturer lives up to Apple's technical requirements.
