When plug in the charger to my iPhone 5s, it has the warning "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iphone." Now, both sides of the lightning connector, the phone will charge, but,on one side, it will always give this warning. what can i do to fix this.


1. its charging both side

2. one side always give this warning (although its charging)

3. this happen to all cables that i try

4. when try the cable with other phone, no problem like my phone (no warning)

If it works and your getting the warning that it may or may not work don't sweat it. Its Apples way of saying you need to buy our stuff and no one else's even though it works. How does the old saying go .... if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I would advise using a apple charger though, using non chargers on the 5 or 5s may cause the U2 IC to blow.


All the chargers I use are the original apple charger. Now really dont know what to do since it out of warranty already.


If your using genuine Apple charger and cords the phone is just not detecting it properly . I would continue to use it unless it shows some sign or unusual charging like heating . Can you test it with another apple approved charger and cord
