From my experience even the cheaper lighting cables are like $5 from retailers so still 4x more for a slower cable. In truth lighting cables cost similar to make as USB cables. Apple created the MFI-Certifed standard out of profit protection and spin it to be a consumer protection standard.

The media always spinning headlines to favor apple because that's where the money is in advertising and accesories sales. Example is a lighting cable cost $20 vs $1.25 for a faster USB-C charge cable. Advertisers like Bestbuy would much rather keep their customers in Apple Jail for "life without parole". Haha
