Apple Allowing Companies To Create Lightning To 3.5mm Cables

Apple is giving Made-For-iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) accessory makers the green light to make a lighting to 3.5mm output cable and USB-C ports.

9to5Mac reports the MFi accessory makers were given updated materials for its manufacturers.

Companies are now able to include and build USB-C ports on their products which will be on Apple’s certified for iOS list.

This is a helpful move for users as more tech companies are beginning to use USB-C ports on their products.

The Verge points out Apple still is not letting third-party manufacturers create lightning to USB-C cables, only the tech giant can build those. This means users still have to fork out upwards of $25 to grab themselves a USB-C to lightning cable.
