Apple’s iOS 7 cable authentication cracked pre release

    iOS7 is due for release soon and one of the many new features is an annoying alert that tell the user if the cable they are using is an unofficial one! Apple even have the ability to prevent the unofficial cable from working.

    However iPhone5mod have already figured out a bypass. iPhone5mod have released a video ( watch it below ) claiming that modders have already figured out the new cable encryption system and that they will be stocking cables that do not trigger the new alert.

    That means owners of iPhone 5s, new iPads, and iPod touch fifth-generation devices can buy cables cheaper. It also means iPhone5mod's glowing cables, retractable cables, and other innovative three-in-one and four-in-one charging and syncing solutions should work with your latest Apple devices.

    Apple has tipped its hand that some kind of authentication protocol is in place, and the company could simply decide not to allow un-approved cables: They could just stop working. But modders have tipped their hand as well that they've broken the encryption scheme. The challenge for modders is that their solution is embedded in hardware, while Apple's is in software.

    how would one get an ipad 4 to charge via a laptop? is it possible with one of these cables? if not do these cables come longer than the standard ipad charger? because the original ones are too short.
