    Is using a dock that is either not Apple, nor MFI rated, dangerous for my iPhone, if used with an Apple cable?

    I've read that non MFI (or Apple) rated cables can be dangerous for your phone, but how about a dock, with an Apple cable?

    dock has the lightning port so i will prefer the MFI rated dock unless i want my phone to burn.

    I wouldn't use it, your phone might set on fire or something.

    I prefer this one... and since you provide your own lightning cable, it will work fine... Comes in black or white!

    Thanks for the input guys!

    If my phone was to fry, do you think it would be covered under the accidental clause of AppleCare+?

    I have a bunch of 3rd party cables and 5 years with different iPhones. I've never had one fry over a cable I used
