About the Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable

With a USB-C to Lightning cable, you can charge and sync your 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 iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it's connected to a USB-C port. 
  • Fast charge your iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st generation and later) or iPad Pro 10.5-inch when it's connected to an Apple 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter. 
  • 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 charger.
  • 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 (4th generation) 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 adapters that aren't manufactured by Apple.
