iOS 7 is blocking non-certified Lightning cables from charging devices. In the first beta version of iOS 7, users were already being prompted to the presence of a cable or accessory that wasn’t certified. It’s now been verified that the final OS is actually preventing non-certified cables from charging. There’s a workaround involving a specific sequence of connecting and disconnecting the Lightning cable, but Apple could block that method in a future iOS 7 update. [via 9to5Mac]
