iPhones and iPads use Lightning to USB cables to charge and sometimes sync data with your computer (depending on how you have yours set up). Apple bundles a standard 3 foot (1 meter) white Lightning USB cable with all their iPhone and iPad devices but for many people that just isn’t enough. You can buy additional iPhone or iPad charging cables, whether you want an extra lightning cable for your car or bedside table, a long lightning cable for charging your phone on the couch, or just an additional fashionable iPhone charging cable to throw in your backpack that won’t be confused with other people’s plain old white iPhone charging cords.
