The licensing scheme is presented to ensure compatible third-party accessory accessories with various Apple products. Manufacturers must go through a series of tests to match Apple's standards.
Manufacturers can use the logo on their product packaging to inform consumers that their products can work with iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Apple changed the logo with three new logos.
This new design removes iPhone, iPod and iPad small illustrations, and replaces them with Apple logo. In addition, Apple also introduced three specific logos, one for the iPhone, one for iPhone and iPad, and one for each. However, manufacturers only have 90 days to update their product designs to embed the new logo.
