Apple Allowing Companies To Create Lightning To 3.5mm Cables

Apple Changes MFi Logo – Manufacturers Have 90 Days to Respond | ChargerLab

A source tells ChargerLab that Apple informed partners of the change last month. This means users still have to fork out upwards of $25 to grab themselves a USB-C to lightning cable. It also has other advantages for manufacturers... Moreover, the MFi meaning has been changed from "Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad" to "Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod". This allowed accessories to avoid bundling a cable with products and simultaneously cut down on costs since users could use the same Lightning cable that came with their iPhones for charging the accessory. Now third-party companies building things like controllers, battery packs, and speakers can use USB-C charging while still keeping Apple's stamp of approval.

"Promote your electronic accessory with MFi logos", the MFi program states on Apple's website. With the change of the MFi logo, manufacturers will have to adapt the logo to their future products.

Comparing it to the new logos we see that instead of the 3 different Apple device logos, it's been simplified to a single black Apple icon.

Apple introduced the specs into its MFi program at the beginning of the year, and it appears there aren't yet any products on the market taking advantage of them.

Apple has reportedly updated the MFi logos used by accessory makers to indicate that their products are certified for use with Apple devices.
