Apple is letting companies make 3.5mm to Lightning cables now

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple has updated the specs for its MFi accessories program (which also got a snazzy new logo over the weekend), letting companies now put USB-C ports on licensed devices, as well as create 3.5mm to Lightning cables for the first time, as reported by 9to5Mac.

They’re useful additions for Apple product users, especially as the company switches more towards using USB-C — at least on its laptops. Now third-party companies building things like controllers, battery packs, and speakers can use USB-C charging while still keeping Apple’s stamp of approval.

But Apple is still frustratingly limiting the specification: unlike Lightning ports, which are also part of the MFi spec for accessories, USB-C ports can’t be used for pass-through charging…

Stock up on stretchy, Apple-certified Lightning cables [Deals]

Owning an iPhone means owning the fact that you’ll have to constantly replace flimsy Lightning cables. Their soft white coating is prone to fraying and tearing, and of course they’re easy to lose. So it’s nice when high quality backup cables don’t cost high quality prices. This pair of stretchy Lightning cables are compact and […]

Review: Prevent Frayed Cables with ChargeGuardZ

Some of the most interesting items I’ve found at shows like the CES have no electronics component to them. At CES 2018, I saw one such item. The ChargeGuardZ ($ 9.99) is a clever gadget that routes a cable, such as a Lightning cable or headphone cable, in such a way that prevents fraying of the ends. In the case of earbuds, you can also wrap the wire around the outside of the ChargeGuardZ to prevent it from getting tangled.

ChargeGuardZ

The ChargeGuardZ also helps keep your cables in place, its heft can make sure your cable stays on your nightstand or desk. You might want to get several, so it’s nice to know they are available in five colors with volume discounts available. 

Pros

  • Protect your cables
  • Helps keep cables in place
  • Available in five colors
  • Volume discounts

Cons

  • Might require an explanation for its usefulness to be apparent

Final Verdict

The ChargeGuardZ, like any new innovation, might need a bit of an explanation as to how and why you need one… but you do.

Apple Will Repair HomePod Power Cables For $29, But Warns They ‘Should Not Be Removed’

While a Reddit user recently demonstrated that the HomePod’s power cable can technically be disconnected from the speaker by pulling on it with a lot of force, Apple warns that it should not be removed, according to an internal document distributed to Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers.


Apple’s internal HomePod Service Readiness Guide, obtained by MacRumors, states that detaching the HomePod’s power cable could potentially cause damage to the speaker’s internal components or to the cable itself:

The HomePod includes a built-in power cable that should not be removed.

In the rare instance that the cable is detached or damaged, do not attempt to remove or plug it back into HomePod. If the cable is removed or impaired, damage could have occurred to the cable or the internal components of HomePod.

If a HomePod’s power cable is damaged due to an unintentional reason, such as a dog chewing on it, Apple notes the cable can be mailed to one of its repair centers and fixed for a flat-rate out-of-warranty fee of $29 plus tax in the United States, £25 including VAT in the UK, and $39 including GST in Australia.

Out-of-warranty essentially means that the flat-rate cable repair fee is available to any customer at any time. The affected HomePod does not need to be within Apple’s limited one-year warranty period, nor is AppleCare+ required.

The only requirement is that the HomePod passes Apple’s visual-mechanical inspection, which checks for other external or internal damage. If the HomePod does not pass, but is still eligible for repair, then the only option is a whole-speaker replacement for $279 in the United States, £268 in the UK, and $399 in Australia.

A whole-speaker replacement is also required for mostly any other kind of damage, unless a customer purchases AppleCare+ for HomePod.

AppleCare+ extends a HomePod’s hardware coverage to two years from its original purchase date, and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a service fee of $39 in the United States, £29 in the United Kingdom, and $55 in Australia, plus the upfront cost of the plan.

If your HomePod requires service, the process can be initiated by contacting Apple Support, booking a Genius Bar appointment at an Apple Store, or visiting an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
