Apple Lightning Connector Authentication Cracked [Video]
Apple's authentication for its new Lightning connector has been reportedly cracked allowing third party companies to manufacturer accessories without approval from Apple, reports M.I.C. Gadget.
What you are seeing here is the world's first-ever fully functional third party Lightning Cable that is introduced by a Chinese company who has successfully cloned Apple's Lightning Cable. This third party Lightning Cable is capable of doing the same functionalities as the original Apple Lightning Cable and even more (it glows!!!). It can charge and sync your iPhone 5, or iPod touch 5th-generation, with Lightning connector to your Mac or Windows PC. And best of all, it comes along with a dock. And the whole thing is named -- The Flash Lightning Dock. Check out this phenomenal accessory for iPhone 5 in action in the video below.
A recent report said that Apple has stalled the production of third party accessories that use the new Lightning connector by introducing significant changes to its MFi policies. Manufacturers are worried that they may not be able to get their products out in time for the holiday season.
