SEID: This setting refers to chipset identity that is related to security and NFC, the mechanism used as part of the Apple Pay mobile payments system on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

What are you using when you get the ‘this accessory not supported?’


Inside every lightning connector is a chip, and that chip must be signed by apple....meaning the maker of the cable must have permission from Apple to make it. If they didn’t then you can get this accessory not supported.

Sometimes it’s a glitch.


What are you trying to connect to your iPad?

It started after attaching a card reader bought from the Apple store, and also an Apple usb camera connector. I tried using them yesterday - plugging them in and out- but still get the message today. It jus pops up apparently randomly.
