Apple Reportedly Modifies MFi Logo, Gives Manufacturers 90 Days to Respond

Now, the manufacturers will have 90 days to update their packagings and MFi logos.

Apple introduced the specs into its MFi program at the beginning of the year, and it appears there aren't yet any products on the market taking advantage of them. Specifically, the company has changed the MFi logo.

For any of you that doesn't know what MFi certified is, it is a manufacturing certification given to Apple's external accessories manufactures to indicate that the product has met Apple's performance and quality standards. With the change of the MFi logo, manufacturers will have to adapt the logo to their future products.


The branding has remained the same since its introduction, but could be about to change: ChargerLab has obtained a trio of illustrations Apple sent to manufacturers, along with a memo instructing them to update the logo on their packaging. Moreover, the MFi meaning has been changed from "Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad" to "Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod". We can also see that the order of products has changed to reflect the popularity of each product line.

While it's possible some MFi accessories could use the USB-C port instead of Apple's Lightning connector or micro-USB, the new specs are not necessarily an indication Apple has plans to move away from Lightning.

With the new specs, companies in the MFi program can now include USB-C receptacles on their officially certified iOS and Mac accessories for charging. However, Apple users have complained that these particular accessories are priced too high.
