Replace Your Worn Out Cable with a 2m iPhone Cable

While there’s a notable shift toward fast-charging cables, mico-cables remain the standard go-to choices when charging your iPhone from a computer or a looking for a portable cable for travel. The 2m iPhone cable is an example that gives you convenience. eBay provides an extensive collection of 2m iPhone cables for you to choose.

Why should you buy the 2m iPhone cable?

Apple designed this 2-meter USB cable to help users connect their iPads, iPhones, or iPods with a lightning connector to a laptop’s USB port for charging or syncing. You can also connect the cable to an Apple USB power adapter for charging from a wall outlet.

What should you look for when buying a 2m iPhone cable?

A good iPhone cable should be sturdy. Hardiness largely depends on the strain-relief collar that connects the cable to the plug. This part of the cable takes on most of the pressure and protects the soldered joints from ripping out when you twist or grab it from the phone.

You should also consider the size and length of the cable. Slim plugs allow you to connect the cable without removing your iPhone’s case. The length is also imperative and depends on the intended use. If you are looking for a cable that you can easily pack into a purse or pocket, a 2m iPhone cable makes sense.

What are the signs of an original iPhone cable?

When Apple introduced the 2m iPhone cables, the market was flooded with unoriginal alternatives. As a result, Apple developed an authentication chip to help users identify original 2m iPhone cables. A few years later, similar connectors were also developed that were not from Apple. The company then introduced a feature that warns users when their phones are connected to uncertified cables. This feature is only available on iOS 7 and 8 devices. However, since there are older versions of the iOS smartphones in use, other ways of identifying authentic iPhone cables come in handy:

  • Ask for a demo when buying the cable to test compatibility.
  • Check the base of the cable. 2m iPhone cables that are not produced by Apple have a wider base than the original ones.
  • Look out for a warning message.
