    I have an I phone 5s. I am trying to charge with the cable that I bought at the apple store and am getting a message that states that it doesn't support this accessory so it won't charge. The cable works on my wifes identical I phone. We also tried her I phone cable and got the same message. It is the original correct I phone cable. I believe it must be something wrong in the phone. Any help would be appreciated.

    Sounds like you're going to have to make a trip to the Apple Store.

    This is something that will normally happen with reduced price accesories that you buy on eBay. This is the new trick for Apple to move their products and not fakes.
    The Apple Store should have by now resolved your issue

    Just got an iph5s myself, and up until now I always bought electronis accesories on eBay, no longer will I be able to buy them there, because they WILL NOT work with the unit I now own.
