If you unwrapped an Apple product today it likely came with one of the company’s first-party Lightning cables, but having an extra on hand is always a good idea, so you can place it in other rooms in your house, in your car, or in a bag when you travel.
For that reason, now’s a good time to shop for third-party Lightning cables that are cheaper than Apple’s own accessory, but still Made For iPhone certified to guarantee their quality.One of the best examples of this is well-known and reliable third-party accessory maker Anker, which has a 3ft / 0.9m Lightning Cablefor just £4.24 on Amazon. Apple’s comparable product, the Lightning to USB Cable, sells for £19.00 on Apple.com.
Many of Anker’s accessories have been certified under Apple’s MFi program, which helps consumers identify products that are assured to work well with iPhone, iPad, and iPod. Shoppers should keep an eye out for MFi certifications when shopping for products like Lightning cables, and be wary of counterfeit accessories that are somewhat common on Amazon and could potentially harm their devices.
