Hi all,
I'm looking for genuine lightning cable with 90 degrees on the USB side.

Do you have any suggestions?

I saw on EBay fake cables, like those I have mentioned above, but I want genuine (Belkin, Griffin, etc).

Thanks for yours help.

That would be a tuff find. It also wouldn't be "genuine" cable, it would be a brand name cable. Genuine sounds like you want Apple to make one.

Oh no, I don`t mind that it would be a brand name cable, just want it to work like the original cable (without any warnings).

90 Down Lightning Connector

Has anyone heard or seen a 90 degree down lightning connector yet? I sometimes use my iPad positioned against my abdomen while it is charging and am concerned about the bending stress of the straight lightning cable and the iPad socket. Plus it is a little uncomfortable. Thanks.

Thanks Zmanbaseball2

Thank YOU Zmanbaseball2! Though the lightning end is not a 90 degree "down," it is 90 sideways. It will work. I appreciate it. :)

That does 100% not mean certified. This cable is not.


What do you mean? 100% not certified? If has the Made for iPhone, iPod and iPad logo on the box, it means that it is. Startech is a reputable company IMO. Amazon requires papers that says that the product is certified by apple before they are able to list it for purchase. Are you trying to prove something?

Slapping a made for sign does not mean the cable is licensed by Apple. Plain and simple.

I think it needs to be MFI certified to officially work with all apple products to avoid the warning of unsupported accessory..
