    Has anyone ever seen this before? I've used the same charger for my iPhone since iPhone 5Accessory not compatible with iPhone?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1380823860.907154.jpg now. Now that I've uploaded iOS 7 on it I get this?

    Should I be concerned about anything?

    I get it sometimes.. and sometimes it works fine....

    Some reports of cable going bad or iOS7 making some cables not work anymore.....


    ​I only use Apple cables and no issues.

    Are there any reported instances of such a product damaging an iPhone?

    Not that I'm aware of.

    It shouldn't damage the phone using non-approved cables; however, Apple cables will surely work better and ensure your device is being charged.

    I can't say my phone was damaged by a non-certified cable, but it was totally unresponsive the other morning while attached to said non-certified cable. Took much prodding (sleep/home a number of times) before I could get it to reboot. No way of knowing what caused the issue, but for me, it's not worth the off-chance it was the cable. Will only use certified cable and chargers from now on.

    i'm having that issue too. i bought a bunch of aftermarket cables for cheap that worked totally fine on iOS 6. now all of them will give this error about 70% of the time. when this error happens, it still charges, but half as fast. if i pull it out and in a few times until it doesn't give that message, then it will charge at normal speed. really sucks cause these cables don't cause any damage and apple doesn't sell 6' cables. i don't mind the message, just wish it charged as fast.

    Never got that message but the Touch ID stopped working on my 5S when I used a very non Apple charger. So I stopped using the charger.

    I have a charger I've been using for a couple of years now. It's got a micro USB cable attached to it and a free USB slot. I have an Apple 30 pin cable in the free slot for my wife's iPhone. On the micro USB cable I have an Apple micro USB to lightning adaptor. It's worked fine all this time. Even with my new iPhone 5s since launch. Just yesterday my 5s has started displaying that message (or words to that effect anyway) when both my 5s and my wife's 4s are plugged in.

    IPHONE 6 started automatically displaying compatibly error yesterday. It just pops up randomly. Not even attached to a computer or cable???? Latest update and version. Only thing I can say that was different was trying to see why my kids 5c would not work with a portable battery charger. Got a similar error but was plugged into a cable and portable charger. That was a week and a half ago.
