Soon after Griffin and Belkin unveiled their USB-C to Lightning cables, Anker shared with 9to5Mac a preview of its MFi cables. 

The PowerLine and PowerLine+ USB-C to Lightning cables are tipped to have a bend lifespan of over 5x higher than any other cable in the market. This is possible through encasing the cable in an aluminum shell and reinforcing it with Anker's signature braided nylon or aramid fiber for extra strength. 

Anker states that these cables will come in 0.8m and 1.8m lengths, and should hit retail shelves in March. Pricing of the cables are not available at time of publication. 

Anker is also launching the USB-C to Lightning audio adapter in April. It allows iPhone users to use Apple's Lightning EarPods, Beats urBeats3  and MFi-certified Lightning to listen to music on Macs with USB-C ports as well as the 2018 iPad Pro devices.
