Report: Lightning Authentication Has Been Cracked

According to reports, the authentication for Apple’s Lightning connector has already been cracked. That didn’t take very long, did it?

We thought it would be at least some time before unlicensed products could be made. Where there’s a will there’s a way.

Website iPhone5Mod is currently offering the dock shown above. They say that the cable uses the same Lightning chips we’ve seen before. However, they have also received chips that bypass the Lightning authentication.

At least it means we may get Lightning connector chargers for fairly cheap. Right? Oh yeah!
