If you have an USB-C to Lightning cable, you can charge and sync your iPhone, iPad, AirPods, iPad and even your iPod touch. These cables listed here are USB PD (USB power delivery) compatible and this is what Apple uses for their fast chargers. Click here to view our iPhone and iPad chargers.

What Is A USB-C To Lightning Cable Used For?

These cables have multiple uses. What you can do with a USB-C to Lightning cable is as follows:

  1. You can charge your iPhone, iPad when it is connected to a USB-C port or USB-C charging adaptor. 
  2. Newer iPhone and iPad models are fast charge compatible when used with USB PD capable USB-C power adapters and when using a fast charging capable Apple USB-C to Lightning cable. These iPhones are the iPhone 8 and later models.
  3. You can also sync an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch as well as importing photos when connected to a USB-C port on your Mac or PC.
  4. You are also able to charge accessories such as Apple’s Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse and more.
  5. Use your iPhone or iPad as a Personal Hotspot when connected over a USB-C to Lightning cable.

So why would you want to use one of these cables? Since USB-C to Lightning cables are capable of fast charging compatible iPhones and iPads, they can charge faster than normal cables.  Additionally since the currently shipping Macs have at least one USB-C connector, the USB-C to Lightning cable has the ability to connect to any of Apple’s new Macs without the use of an adapter.

These cables are able to connect natively to all of Apple’s latest Macs without an adapter, as every currently shipping Mac has at least one USB-C port.

Below are three types of USB C To Lightning cable.
