Capable of charging your device three times faster than standard lightening cables, this powerful and practically unbreakable cable is MFi-certified, features scratch-resistant connectors forged from super-strong zinc alloy, and has a strain-resistant core—meaning that months of constant twists and bends won’t result in a frayed or dysfunctional cable.

iOS 11.3 increases pairing security for connected USB accessories. The new rules require that you approve the connection either by plugging the accessory via the Lightning connector or entering your device passcode once per week.
Apple will soon allow vendors who design MFi-certified accessories to build support for an obscure but already-existent port in order to ease some of the connectivity and adapter woes associated with Lightning-based headphones. 9to5Mac reported that the company might market UAC, an intermediary in headphone cables, as “Ultra Accessory Connector” (UAC).
Citing sources at Apple, The Verge adds that UAC is an old plug you might have seen with your Nikon DSLR camera rather than a proprietary new connector type from Apple. Apple’s ultimate goal with UAC, The Verge claims, is making Lightning and USB-C work better together rather than replacing them with a brand new I/O port.
I do a lot of work at my office desk at home, and for that reason alone, I have a love for things that help keep my work space uncluttered.

The Gravitas dock by Henge Docks is a good choice, and in this review, we’ll give you an up-close look at it.
