    Just today I am getting this message on my iPhone 6 Plus.

    This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work with this iPhone.

    The thing is I don't have any cable connected to the iPhone when this happens.

    When I do plug in my Apple charger and cable it does charge ok. The message keeps popping up without anything connected to the phone.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    If a reboot does not stop it I would back-up and take it to the Apple store. Never heard of this message when a cable was not plugged in.

    That happened to me when I first got my apple watch, but Apple sent me a new one and it's been fine ever since.
