For any of you that doesn't know what MFi certified is, it is a manufacturing certification given to Apple's external accessories manufactures to indicate that the product has met Apple's performance and quality standards. This basically means no USB-C charging cases for your iPhone. It also has other advantages for manufacturers... Still, Apple does give you other options, as it lists on its official support pages that the fast-charging functionality of the new iPhones is certainly accessible by plugging in certain third-party USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) adapters, and combining them with an "Apple USB-C to Lightning" cable (sold separately for $25 or $35, depending on the length).
At present, the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE are the only phones that Apple sell which include a traditional headphone jack, and we can't see Apple including one on any future releases.
It's worth mentioning that Apple is still limiting the specifications: Unlike Lightning ports, the USB-C ports can't be used for pass-through charging or syncing on iPhones. Included in Apple's documentation for the news specifications are speakers and battery packs as products for which it could be advantageous to use a USB-C receptacle. They can also use the USB port on their Mac with the same cable to charge their Apple device.
Products can include USB-C cables with the MFi accessories but manufacturers may not put an adapter or a cable and do some cost savings instead.
Also, new for accessory makers is the ability to create a Lightning to 3.5mm stereo analog audio output plug, which would allow users to go direct from the Lightning port to a 3.5mm input on another device.
Apple introduced the specs into its MFi program at the beginning of the year, and it appears there aren't yet any products on the market taking advantage of them.
