I bought a lightning cable from Amazon for $6 lmao, and it's a meter long. You really need to get back on your meds

Ya and you get bombarded with “liquid detected” errors

What does that mean?

Apple puts something in their own charger so they can detect when a charger is made by a third party. If you use a third party you get tons of “device not supported” or “liquid detected” warnings to spook you.

Hmmm interesting. Ive seen that happening with Samsung phones too so it’s probably not an apple only problem

Only anecdotal, but I've used samsung phones and my wife iphones for the last 5 years, basically only buy 3rd party cables for both, and neither of us have ever had any of those issues come up at all

I wouldn’t know. I’ve used iPhones for years. They’re great for the most part but the whole lightning charging cable system is an absolute shit show. Can’t wait for usb c

I’ve never had any problems with third party cables, in fact they are much better than the crappy apple ones

I wish I shared your experience. My last iPhone got ruined because a third party charger broke inside the phone. Every connector was loose and shitty after that. :(
