Is Your Charger Hurting Your iPhone? How to Find Out and What to Do About It
Today we want to talk about something that’s essential for Apple device users – MFI cables.
MFI stands for Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod. This means that the cable has been certified by Apple to be compatible with their devices. It’s like a seal of approval that tells you the cable has been tested and meets the high standards of performance and safety set by Apple.
One important thing to note is that MFI cables don’t have to be purchased directly from Apple. There are many third-party manufacturers who also make MFI-certified cables that are just as safe and reliable as the ones sold by Apple. So, if you’re looking to buy an MFI cable, don’t feel like you have to go to an Apple Store or website. Just make sure to look for the MFI logo on the packaging or the cable itself. This logo signifies that the cable has been certified by Apple and meets their high standards of quality and safety. By shopping for cables with the MFI logo, you can confidently use your Apple device with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you’re using a safe and reliable accessory.
Using an MFI cable is important for many reasons. Non-certified cables can damage your device, causing problems like slow charging, overheating, or even blowing a circuit, which can prevent the phone from charging at all and even make the battery swell. You definitely don’t want to take any chances with your precious iPhone or iPad!
But how can you tell if your cable is MFI certified? Simply check out the Apple website, where they maintain a list of all MFI-certified accessories, including cables. You can check the list by clicking on this link: https://mfi.apple.com/MFiWeb/getAPS. Just search for the manufacturer and model of your cable to see if it’s on the list. If it’s not, it’s better to avoid using that cable with your Apple device.
