Buying official accessories is usually an expensive affair, even if it for something as simple as a charging cable, which is why it is not surprising that there are some who turn to third-party, and sometimes unofficial, alternatives in a bid to save money. Well it seems that in a bid to help users identify that their cables might not be the real thing, or to warn them that using third-party accessories might not be stable, Apple has included a new feature in iOS 7 that will actually prompt users (via Apple Insider) when they attempt to connect an unofficial Lightning cable to their iOS device. Similar warnings were prompted in the past on older iOS devices that used the 30-pin dock connector, but we guess this will be a first as far as Lightning connectors are concerned.
