    Have a car charger (belkin i believe) for the old iOS type port.
    Worked great with :
    iPhone 4 on iOS5
    iPhone 5 on iOS6 (with Apple adapter)
    iPhone 5S on iOS7 (with Apple adapter)

    But the 6+ on iOS 8 charges for about 30 seconds to a minute, before saying this accessory is not supported. I though the "lightning authentication" came with iOS7, so if it worked on iOS7, then it should work on iOS8 too right?

    My wife gets all that time on her iPhone 5 - very frustrating. I don't think its an iPhone 6 issue, but some iPhone/iOS "feature"

    Is her phone also on iOS8?

    Did iOS8 just become more strict on the authentication of lightning chargers then?
