Apple now allows accessory manufacturers to make 3.5mm-to-Lightning cables

14 March 2018

Along with updated logos for its MFi accessories program, Apple is now letting third-party accessory manufacturers to sell 3.5mm-to-Lighting cables, as well as USB-C ports in their products, according to a report from 9to5Mac.

With the change in the MFi logo, Apple added some new types of accessories which Apple partners can develop and release to the public, like the Lightning to 3,5mm adapter. Apple does offer a fast 29W USB-C Power Adapter that will load your iPhone to 50% in 30 minutes flat, but that one will cost you $49 extra.

Jhené Aiko and Big Sean deny that relationship is on the rocks
Big Sean , whose past loves include former Glee star Naya Rivera and Ariana Grande , has been dating Aiko since 2016. Big Sean co-signed his girlfriend's message by quoting her tweet with several handclap emojis.

The development follows yesterday's news that Apple is revamping the logos used on MFi products.

Thus, as soon as popular Apple accessory makers license their wares, we might be able to buy a cheaper USB-C to Lightning cable to pair with, say, Anker's USB-PD adapter that costs half of what Apple charges for its own.

Angela Merkel elected by German Parliament for Fourth Term as Chancellor
Merkel will travel to Paris Friday for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron on the first trip overseas of her new term. After weeks of negotiations, a coalition treaty was produced and later approved by SPD members who voted via postal ballot.

The Made for iPhone, Made for iPad, and Made for iPod logos communicate to customers that an electronic accessory has been created to connect specifically to iPhone, iPhone, or iPod, and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards. Included in Apple's documentation for the news specifications are speakers and battery packs as products for which it could be advantageous to use a USB-C receptacle. They can also use the USB port on their Mac with the same cable to charge their Apple device.

This is a helpful move for users as more tech companies are beginning to use USB-C ports on their products. The new cable would improve the user experience from an audio perspective and add more durability to the entire product.

Broncos Going After Keenum At Quarterback
The addition of Keenum moves the Broncos immediately from the absolute bottom of the AFC West to contending for the division. Why I like this move for the Broncos is because Keenum was truly one of the best players available based on last season.
