If you own an Apple device and when buying a cable or charger you happened to read the MFi marking on the packaging, you have made the right choice.
Apple products have very specific characteristics, and only the brand's own accessories or those with MFi certification are suitable for connection to devices such as the iPhone, iPad or iPod.

Apple has created a licensing programme called MFi, or Made for iPhone/ iPad/ iPod, which allows customers to recognise which third-party products are actually verified and certified by the brand itself. For manufacturers, obtaining certification involves complying with requirements and protocols dictated directly by Apple and passing tests to ensure full compatibility with iOS devices.
The intention is to ensure maximum security by informing owners of Apple devices that there is a distinction between counterfeit accessories on the market and those certified by the company that meet precise standards. Checking the presence of Apple MFi certification is essential, as using non-certified accessories could cause more or less serious damage to devices.
The first element to be observed in order to recognise the presence of Apple MFi certification is the packaging of the accessory: certified devices have an MFi logo:
Apple clearly recommends the use of certified accessories for iOS devices, and to make it easier to recognise them, it has placed a useful document on its website for recognising counterfeit accessories. Thanks to a series of details that make Lightning accessories with MFi certification immediately recognisable, possible damage to Apple-branded devices is avoided.
A further element of security is provided by the Apple devices themselves: the moment you connect a non-certified cable or charger to your iOS device, it should warn you that the accessory is uncertified and may not work safely with your device.
Finally, to avoid any kind of malfunction and to be completely sure that you are buying an MFi-certified accessory, Apple also provides a public database that allows you to easily search for MFi-licensed accessories by entering the brand, model or UPC/EAN code.
All SBS Made For Apple accessories are certified to meet the manufacturer's performance standards. You can safely use compatible devices for charging, connectivity, audio/video playback or call handling.
