Apple has updated its Made for iPhone, Made for iPad, and Made for iPod logos, and accessory makers have 90 days from when the change was announced in mid February to begin using them, according to ChargerLab.

The new decals look similar, but they have Apple logos in place of iPhone, iPad, and iPod icons. Apple has also moved iPod from first to last in the list, as the iPhone and iPad have long overshadowed the portable media player. The new logos use Apple's San Francisco font, compared to Myriad Pro previously.

Apple's old Made for iPod, iPhone, and iPad logo

Made for iPhone, Made for iPad, and Made for iPod logos inform customers that an electronic accessory has been certified by the developer to meet Apple's performance standards. To use the logos, accessory makers must apply to be a MFi Program licensee, and receive approval from Apple.

MFi-licensed technologies include the Lightning connector, CarPlay, GymKit, HomeKit, game controllers, and hearing aids, among others. MFi Program certification is not required for accessories that only make use of standard Bluetooth profiles supported by iOS, or accessories that only use the 3.5mm headphone jack.

For customers, this isn't a significant change. But, next time you're shopping for Apple-certified accessories, be aware the logos will soon change on packaging. It doesn't appear the similar Made for Apple Watch decal has changed.

(Thanks, Nick!)

That famous Apple attention to detail strikes again!

The separator between iPhone and iPad is unbolded.

That kind of carelessness is typical of Apple these days. If that logo got released in the Jobs era, the graphic designer responsible would've been fired immediately, and deservedly so.

Haha. I’ve been telling, for over 2 years almost, that Apple is pointing out that the iPhone name will be replaced by Apple (insert symbol here) Phone.
iTunes, iBooks, iCloud are all becoming relics of the past.
Now it is Apple Pay, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch (not iWatch), Apple MacBook (look how subtle it is that they now put the apple symbol before the MacBook name), Apple Music...
Even iBooks is being replaced by just purely “Books” in some of the new iOS betas.
Watch it happen, now it is Apple iPhone. In a few years, Apple Phone.

;)

You heard it first here.
(Even the mess with the iPhone X (ten) branding is explained in light of such a deliberate weakening of the iPhone brand. It won’t stay here for long.)

Calm down, mate.
They did that on purpose...by constructing a thicker wall to separate iPods from what they care now. Soon, the iPods will be gone too.
