Anonymous, 08 Jan 2019This cable is MFI certifiedIf it's anything like their furniture, it won't last long.
Likely the first MFi-certified cable, meaning it'll actually be up to the specifications and quality guidelines set forth by Apple. So you don't have to worry about it frying your device, or not working properly, which is something you need to worry about with cheap Chinese knock-off cables.
I've seen them in the Dollar stores here in Canada for a long time now.
Here in slovakia there are also some cheap chinese options for much less money.
Same comes when i search on alliexpres site.
So Belkin cannot be first.
As soon as I saw that Apple made a USB C to Lightning cable I thought to check Amazon. I bought a USB C to Lightning cable by McDodo for less than $16US. Plus it has the 5000 or 6000 bend warranty.

They probably pay Apple royalties... Just like companies that make lightning headphones do. They have to pay Apple for using their tech. Apple are probably fine with this tbh. They don't have any costs but they make money per unit sold. People will still buy the Apple one if they want to as well and not go to Belkin.
Abunja, 07 Jan 2019Belkin making profit out of Apple's intelligent strategy of marketing proprietary units. Let's... moreYes intelligent ? The only thing that make apple's strategy successful is the stupidity of isheeps (like you) who buy everrything from apple without knowing the competition you trist apple but they are exploiting you
Why do websites keep reporting this is the first USBC to lightning cable that isn't made by Apple? I've owned a non-Apple lightning to USBC cable for about a year now.
Well, there're brands like Baseus and Promate that sells these USB-C to Lightning cables in the Philippines for less than 10USD, so... uhm...
