I have these BTW and they work: iXCC (tm) 2pcs White 10ft (TEN FEET !) EXTRA LONG Lightning USB SYNC Cable Cord Charger For Apple iPhone 5, iPod Nano 7, iPod Touch 5, iPad 4, iPad with Retina Display and the iPad Mini http://amzn.com/B0092HN0UY Could a 3rd party cable damage my iPhone 5 or iPod touches battery in any way in the long run?(Cables that are not MFi certified). Would 3rd party cables work with iOS 7 when it comes out? Does anyone use Monoprice's lightning cables(these are MFi certified. I am thinking about getting the 10ft one. Any other cheaper MFi ones out their that you recommend. Im starting to think about only MFi lightning cables are going to work in iOS 7. Sorry if their is similar threads on this already. I just want a personal answer.
