Apple Quits Monopoly On Jack Adapters
As with apps, Apple has absolute control over the accessories that are compatible with its mobile devices. Thus, all MFI logo (Made for iPhone) accessories are 100% compatible with devices and guaranteed to function in normal, like an official accessory. With the change of the MFi logo, Apple has added some new types of accessories that partners can develop and launch, such as an adapter from the Lightning Jack to a 3.5mm jack
Apple has delivered a Lightning-to-Jack Adapter in the box of each iPhone since the release of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but those who lose or damage them have to buy one of the stores selling Apple's official products at the price of 10 euros. The fact that there is a possibility to buy such MFI third-party adapters means that cheaper alternatives will also appear for the joy of those who still use headphones with 3.5mm jacks next to the iPhone
Another change now allows developers to make accessories compatible with the USB-C charging standard, which will allow wireless accessories such as gamepads or external batteries to be equipped with the new standardized charging plug. What Apple does not yet is is the production of USB-C-to-Lightning cables, like the one the company sells separately from the phone to connect to a MacBook Pro / MacBook 12. This cable is also the only one that can be used to benefit fast charging on an iPhone 8, 8 Plus or X and costing between $ 25 and $ 35 depending on length (1 or 2 m).
The fact that we can get a cheaper alternative to Apple's official accessories should be enjoyed by fans, such as Anker, Belkin, or Spigen, being highly valued worldwide for iPhone and other brand-compatible accessories
