About the Apple USB-C to Lightning cable

With a USB-C to Lightning cable, you can charge and sync your AirPods, AirPods Pro, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, charge a Siri Remote and more. 

Here's what you can do with a USB-C to Lightning cable:

  • Charge your AirPods, AirPods Pro, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch when connected to a USB-C port. 
  • Certain iPhone models are fast-charge-compatible when connected to certain USB-C power adaptors using the Apple USB-C to Lightning cable.
  • Sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch or import your photos when connected to a USB-C port on your Mac or PC.
  • Charge a Siri Remote when it's connected to a USB-C port on a Mac, PC or USB-C power adaptor.
  • Charge Apple accessories like a Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard or Magic Trackpad.
  • Use your iPhone or iPad as a Personal Hotspot when connected over a USB-C to Lightning cable.

The USB-C port on an Apple TV HD doesn't support charging, so you can't use this port to charge a Siri Remote. You might not be able to charge your iOS device using USB-C power adaptors that aren't manufactured by Apple.
