You may have heard about cables being “MFi Certified,” or maybe you’ve seen something like this logo before:
But what exactly does it mean?
Well, MFi is short for “made for iPhone/iPad/Apple Watch.” It’s the name of the Apple licensing program. When you see “MFi,” It lets you know that a product has Apple’s official stamp of approval, and will work perfectly with an Apple device.
MFi Certified products…
- Stay current with Apple system updates.
- Do not cause warning messages or compatibility issues.
- Will not harm your Apple device through normal use
How can I find out for sure if a cable I’m about to buy is MFi Certified?
When a product has completed the requirement for certification, it gets updated to Apple’s searchable database, which you can check here (choose Brand and search for Anker):
One of our very own MFi Certified creations is PowerLine+ II Lightning, the ultra-durable cable that’s yours for life. Not only can you count on PowerLine+ II to last a lifetime, it’s been confirmed by Apple themselves to work perfectly with your iPhone.
