Lightning Cables

We found you the best quality, lowest priced short USB cables on Amazon, so you don’t have to.

Don’t you hate it when you plug your phone into your car and Apple CarPlay won’t work? MFi (Made For iPhone/iPad/iPod) is an Apple certification that ensures that your cable will work with Apple CarPlay in your vehicle. Many cheap short USB cables do not carry this certification, which means that they may charge your iPhone okay, but they may not transfer data well, or at all. Here at Car Phone Cables, all Lightning cables listed are MFi certified so you will never have that problem again! We have arranged our cables by type, so you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
