Fast charging has been possible on iOS since the iPhone 8's release, though you couldn't always find affordable Lightning cables to use. Thankfully, that's since changed as companies other than Apple can now produce MFi-certified Lightning cables too and offer them at much better prices.
Take this Anker USB-C to Lightning Cable for example. Its price falls to just $11.89 today at Amazon when you use promo code AKNN4CTL during checkout. The deal applies to both the black and red versions of the cable so you can choose which you like best. The code works on both the 3-foot and 6-foot versions too. While the 3-foot version drops to $11.89, the 6-foot cable falls to $13.29 using the same promo code.
This charge and sync cable features Power Delivery, meaning you'll have access to fast-charging with compatible iOS devices. That means you can get your phone from empty to half full in just 30 minutes. It's designed to be durable, too, with the ability to withstand over 12,000 bends. This could even be the last USB-C to Lightning cable you'll ever need to buy, as the manufacturer backs it with a hassle-free lifetime warranty.
Anker's cables are MFi-certified so you won't get that annoying pop-up saying the cable isn't supported like you might get with cheaper alternatives. Note that a wall charger isn't included. If you don't have one around, Anker has plenty of options if you want to pick one up as well.
