A developer has released Lightning cables that allegedly bypass iOS 7’s new authentication feature, which warns users about non-certified Lightning accessories. iPhone5mod.com claims that it has cracked the chips, allowing the cables to bypass Apple’s authentication process. Apple could fix the iOS 7 software to identify these cables, but it’s likely that unlicensed developers will keep tweaking their products in efforts to bypass the warnings. [via 9to5Mac]
