Connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with Lightning connector to your Apple iPad 10.2" (7th Generation 2019) and USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) enabled Mac for syncing and charging. You can also use this cable with your Apple 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter to charge your iOS device, and even take advantage of the fast-charging feature on iPad Pro, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
Reliable cord (lightning to usbc) that I needed to connect my newer MacBook to my iPhone 7plus. The insulation is thicker than the stock charging cord (lightning to the old style usb). Can also use this to charge my phone directly to the MacBook charging wall brick, a plus I didn’t think about until I looked it up. I love usb-C, plug it in either way correctly, the first time.
Look my sister is special needs her iPad is her life and we have to keep these cords right here on hand at any time. Or we face the queen. Can’t blame her, her iPad is her connection to the world other than us. For that reason alone my parents will always order far more cords then anyone else in America.
A:AnswerA lot of the negative reviews on the apple site are because it's not included in the box and people are upset that they have to pay extra for it. The cable itself is great, and yes, it's the same one.
