Apple Lightning Connector Authentication Cracked [Video]

Apple Lightning Connector Authentication Cracked [Video]

Posted October 9, 2012 at 4:40pm by iClarified
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.

If you are a iphone 4s user,do you want to spend over 20usd for another cable?It looks crazy. Maybe Cook is crazy. It's unfair for existing iphone4 and 4s users who own some accessories with 30-pin connector. Cracked Lightning is a good choice for the existing apple users.

Seems cool enough. Just ordered one. Dock alone is worth it for me. The fancy cable is just a plus.

I need cheap lightning cables - not some fancy cable that'd still cost $19 a pop.

Talked to one of my suppliers in china. She says be suspicious of the company. The company address and telephone number don't seem right. The company is is in mainland china and the listed phone is in Hong Kong. They should have a mainland china number also

Wenn Ihr Probleme mit Facetime oder MMS habt. Hier ein praktischer Tip vom inlbpeohog.de:Ffcr die MMS- und FaceTime-Probleme bestand ein Problem mit den Zugriffsrechten. Ein Update wurde bereits fcber Cydia ausgeliefert. Falls danach immer noch nicht der Anzeige-Button ffcr die Videotelefonie in den Kontakten auftaucht, hilft ein Zurfccksetzen der Netzwerkeinstellungen. Eventuell muss FaceTime auch einfach nur neu aktiviert werden (-> Einstellungen -> Telefon).

That's pretty neat why didn't apple come up with that ???? Cos they jut want to shaft u with their cheap stuff
TC - October 9, 2012 at 5:14pm
It's ok, apple will soon buy that company and then claim it as their own innovation. Or they'll sue them for a trillion dollars.

Bringing a law suit in China is difficult.

Was there any doubt? It was only a matter of when, not if.
