    Dear friends, I suspect that after updating my iPad3 with iOS7, some of my 3rd party charging cables and/or adapters cannot be used...and there is this message appearing :"This Accesory May Not Be Supported". Is this true? Any suggestion to rectify this problem?

    Hi Bright Bold - welcome to the forum! :)

    Well, I don't completely understand that if your 'adapters' worked before the upgrade to iOS 7 that they do not work on the same iDevice after installing the newer iOS? Why not tell us which adapters you own (brands) and do you have the original iPad charger, and if so does it still work w/ you iPad? Dave

    This happened to me with my camera adapter:

    It worked before the update, afterwards I couldn't use it any more. Afaik, Apple started blocking unauthorized lightning cables with iOS 7.

    Welcome to iPF, btw! Glad you joined us!

    Yep
    Happened with me as well on my iPhone 5. The older ipad3 connectors work fine though.

    I get this same message with a lot of my third party accessories. Look at the charging icon on the iPad. If it is charging, ignore the message. If not, unplug and replug. That usually solves the problem. All of my third-party devices that worked before iOS 7.0.4 work afterwards. Notice that the message says "may not be". It is just apple's way to get you to spend more $ with them on their stuff.

    Well this issue piqued my interest - apparently there are 'authentication chips' in Apple charging cables and the decision was made in iOS 7 to block non-certified 3rd party cables from working w/ the iDevices - one story HERE, but just google 'ipad ios7 authentication charging cables' for many more hits. The link refers to Lightning cables, but I'm assuming the same applies for those using the older 30-pin dock, since that is the one in the iPad 3. Dave :)

    P.S. in the link, a potential 'work around' is outlined (in the quotes below):

    The part about blocking cannot be true as mine all work. Some are from amazon and some are complete no-names. Of course, I see I have in effect been using that workaround, though I have never followed the ten steps listed there which seems a whole lot more complicated than need be.

    Both my cables don't work even with that workaround.
    Maybe there are different qualities of generic cables.

    Probably true. Where did you get yours? I bought all of mine on Amazon, but only two are Amazon Basic. The others are some no-name that I can't even remember. Probably best to stick with Amazon or go Apple.

    Read up thread. Apple must have some reason to disable those. Might be for the good of your devices.

    I think it's more because apple want some license fees these accessories made by third parties.

    The point is that ALL other electronic companies have moved away from proprietary connectors and have opted for a universal standard with microUSB.

    However apple still wants to keep their connector and it's only to make money.

    Good point, tron. I think you nailed it. The thing is, I think we will all be better off with a lightning connector than any other prior connector. Apple sells enough idevices to make the connector ubiquitous. I wish they'd make the fee lower to encourage everyone to paid it. Now we must wait on the next version of USB to get the equivalent connector for everyone. But they should have done this long ago. So I have zero love for the USB committee.

    My wife gets this message on her iPad Mini using the cable that came with the iPad so you can get it with genuine cables also.

    OP: yes it is normal. I am no longer able to use my $2 iPhone 5 cable with my phone. iOS 7 just broke it.
