Watch out for cheap, bootlegged iPhone 5 accessories. A Chinese tech company claims to have obtained "cracked" chips for iPhone 5 accessories that support the Lightning connector--but bypass Apple's authentication functions.
Chinese iPhone accessory company iPhone5mod is claiming to have obtained chips that bypass the iPhone's ability to detect unlicensed Lightning connector accessories.
