Not long ago, it was revealed that Apple plans to ship the Connector necessary for the iPhone's USB-C to Lightning cable in the coming future. This means that third-party accessory manufacturers can produce such products early next year, which indicates the arrival of the third-party USB-C to Lightning cable is near.

Recently, ChargerLAB got the physical map of the Apple C94 Lightning Connector from the supply chain, which was inside of a third-party MFi certified USB-C to Lightning cable. The front and back close-ups are clearly visible from the picture. The front has only one master and has built-in materials such as PMU and MOS, so the integration is quite high, The rear, however, is much simpler, with only a little resistance.

Since iOS 12, the possibility of third-party manufacturers cracking Apple's USB-C to Lightning cable has become rarer. Although there are third-party production lines that use cracked chips, some do not charge as fast as the original cable, or they fail to work after the iOS updates so they cannot be used for charging.

It is foreseeable that when Apple's USB-C to Lightning Connector is shipped, more and more third-party manufacturers will follow up, and consumers can choose plentiful fast charge cables. After all, the price of the official one is not cheap.

A report from last week claims that Apple will update the iPad mini family early next year, however. the iPad mini 5 will not receive major upgrades, it most likely to have a speed bump, as the screen will be replaced by a lower cost display, and is designed to stimulate the overall sales of the iPad lineup.

According to Chinese website ITHome, it appears that a so-called iPad mini 5 case has surfaced on the web, although we can not see the specific shape of this model, just from the back, the rear camera setup looks like got vast improvements, but it will not be dual-lens. From the case, it seems like the iPad mini 5 may add stereo speakers support, and the 3.5mm headphone jack will still be retained.

In October this year, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple is in the work for a new version of the iPad mini, and the device may be released March 2019. Based on the timeframe and past track records, we expected that Apple will hold a Spring Event in March of next year, probably launch other Apple accessories such as AirPods and AirPower as well.
