Apple Reduces Licensing Fees For MFi and Pass-Through Connector, More Affordable Accessories on the Way
Apple has made third-party accessory connectors available for years. The official manufacturing license is called Made for iPod, or MFi. Since Apple launched iOS 7 and included coding for MFi game controllers, companies have started launching game pads for iOS. However, most of these controllers, as well as other accessories, like chargers, speakers, keyboards, and other products that connect directly to Apple’s iPad and iPhone devices are fairly expensive.
