If you're planning to get an original replacement for your lightning cable, get ready your pocket. The original one will cost you around Php 1,200. Very expensive right? Other Apple users would opt to purchase a cheap knock off cables with the risk of ending up with this error, “This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPhone” or “This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPad”. It's very hassle!
Although I am aware of the risks I have mentioned above, it's still not my option to purchase the original Lightning cable (because it's very expensive). I stumbled upon Miracase Sync and Charge Cable with Lightning Connector at Octagon, Glorietta. At first i was doubting its compatibility with the iDevices since some cables don't synchronize or charge the phone properly due to its operating system version limitation and its Micro controller or Chip inside the Apple Cables itself.
Nevertheless, I thought of making a gamble since the label itself has the MFI or Manufactured for iPhone Logo to the packaging - though Miracase is not listed to the supported third party accessories on Apple's website. This cable only costs Php 595.00 only! Here's the packaging for your reference.
Miraculous Miracase came to the rescue!

Original Lightning Cable VS Miracase Lightning Cable
As you can see, the Miracase Lightning Cable is thicker than the Apple Cable. It measures around 4.0 mm thick.
Testing the Cable
To test if the Miracase Lightning cable is really working, I attached it to the iPad 4.
Eureka! It works flawlessly with iPad 4
- SKU: MAC808

The Miracase Lightning Sync Cable is fully compatible with latest iPhone Series: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus. This 3rd party cable is also perfectly working with iOS 7 and iOS 8. I guarantee that you will not end up with this errors: “This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPhone” or “This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this iPad”. The amount Php 595.00 you will spend to purchase it is very worth it!
