As we told you earlier this month, iOS 7 beta 1 doesn’t outright block non-certified Lightning cables. Instead, when a unauthorized cable is plugged in, users are greeted with a warning message.
But iPhone5mod has developed a hardware crack that can’t be worked around without Apple changing the Lightning hardware, which is very unlikely to happen. The company is offering a money-back guarantee that its cables will work with the final version of iOS 7 that is released to the public later this fall.
Here’s a short video from the company about its products. Click here if you can’t see it.
The company also confirmed to MacRumors that its cables, with the cracked authentication protocols, are also working fine with iOS 7 beta 2, which was released earlier today.
Our own Robin Rhys dedicated an episode of AppAdvice Daily to looking at the company’s lighted Lightning cable, which hit the market last year. You can take a look at the complete episode here.
