Because of the many different types of interfaces on iPhones, iPads, Android devices and PC's cables for all devices are not included. You may need a different cable than the one included or an adapter to use in conjunction with the included cable. For instance a recent iPhone or iPad with a Lightning interface will need a Lightning to USB Adapter. You can find a variety of these on Amazon and other on-line stores. CLICK HERE for one found on Amazon that will work on iPhones and iPads with a Lightning connector.
