MFI Packaging

Overview

These guidelines explain the correct use of the MFi and AirPlay logos and provide marketing guidelines related to their use. To help maintain the strength of the iPod, iPhone, iPad, MFi, and AirPlay brands, it is important to follow these guidelines consistently.

The MFi logos

The MFi logos are designed to communicate that an accessory is compatible with iPod, iPhone, or iPad. MFi multiple-product logos provided by Apple can be used only when your company’s Licensed Product is compatible with the Apple products designated in the MFi logo. See MFi Logos.

The logos shown in these guidelines must be used only in connection with accessories that have been approved as Licensed Products in accordance with the MFi/Made for iPod License Agreement (and, where applicable, the iPhone/iPad Supplement or AirPlay Supplement) signed by Apple.

The appropriate MFi logo must be printed on the packaging of a Licensed Product. The MFi logo may also be used in the user guide and other Licensed Product–related communications.

The AirPlay logo

The AirPlay logo is designed to communicate that an accessory is compatible with AirPlay.

The AirPlay logo must be used with AirPlay-enabled accessories that have been approved as Licensed Products in accordance with the MFi/Made for iPod License Agreement (and, where applicable, the iPhone/iPad Supplement or AirPlay Supplement) signed by Apple.

The MFi logo and AirPlay logo must be printed on the packaging of a Licensed Product that implements AirPlay technology. The MFi logo and AirPlay logo may also be used in the user guide and other Licensed Product–related communications.

Where to download logo artwork

Logo artwork files are available for download in the Marketing Materials section of the MFi Portal Document Center.

Important

Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the revocation of your MFi License. The information in these guidelines is subject to change. Refer to the MFi Portal for updates.

Legal requirements

All materials must properly attribute every Apple trademark with the appropriate symbol and credit lines. SeeCredit lines and trademark symbols. Refer to www.apple.com/legal/intellectual-property for more detailed legal requirements from Apple.

MFi Logos

1.1 MFi single-product logos

Use an MFi single-product logo on packaging and marketing communications to clearly communicate that a Licensed Product is compatible with iPod, iPhone, or iPad. Select the logo that correctly communicates the Licensed Product’s compatibility. If the Licensed Product is compatible with more than one of these Apple products, use a multiple-product logo.

 

Made for iPod logo

 

Made for iPhone logo

 

Made for iPad logo

1.2 MFi multiple-product logos

Use an MFi multiple-product logo to indicate that a Licensed Product is compatible with more than one Apple product: iPod and iPad; iPod and iPhone; iPhone and iPad; or iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

Make sure you select the correct logo to indicate the Licensed Product’s compatibility. Only one logo can appear on a layout.

 

Made for iPod and iPad logo

Use only with Licensed Products that are compatible with both iPod and iPad.

 

Made for iPod and iPhone logo

Use only with Licensed Products that are compatible with both iPod and iPhone.

 

Made for iPhone and iPad log

Use only with Licensed Products that are compatible with both iPhone and iPad.

 

Made for iPod, iPhone, and iPad logo

Use only with Licensed Products that are compatible with all three Apple products.

1.3 Artwork

MFi logo artwork is provided in:

  • Resolution-independent .svg format
  • .psd format for web or onscreen use
  • .eps format for use in printed materials

1.4 Localization

The MFi logos are provided in English and French. Do not create your own localized version of the logo. A translation of the words “Made for” can be provided below the logo in text, followed by the correct Apple product name or names in English.

1.5 Graphic standards

Minimum size and clear space

 

The minimum height for each MFi logo is 10 mm on printed communications and 30 pixels for onscreen use. The minimum clear space around the logo is X on all sides, where X is equal to one-quarter the height of the logo. Do not place graphics, type, photographs, or illustrations inside the clear space.

Logo color

MFi logos always appear in black and white except on printed materials where black ink is not available. The area within the border is white, even on color backgrounds.

 

Background color

 

The MFi logos can appear on black or other color backgrounds and on photographic backgrounds, as long as the logo is clearly legible against the background.

One- and two-color printing

 

MFi logos can be printed in color only when black is not available, as on some one- or two-color printed materials. When black is not available, the logo can be printed in the color of the layout, as long as it provides sufficient contrast for clear legibility.

1.6 Do’s and Don’ts

Do

  • One MFi logo must be printed on the package of a Licensed Product. Place the logo in a visible area on the outside of the packaging.
  • The MFi logo can be used on advertising and promotions related to the Licensed Product.
  • Use only one MFi logo on each Licensed Product–related communication, including advertising, packaging, manuals, web pages, and printed collateral.
  • Place the logo in a subordinate position on the layout following your Licensed Product or company identity or main message. The logo should be smaller than your identity or main message.
  • Use only current logo artwork provided by Apple without modification.

Don’t

  • Do not use an MFi logo if your media cannot reproduce the logo artwork clearly and at high resolution.
  • Do not use the logo on general company or product communications. It must be used only in connection with your Licensed Product.
  • Do not make the logo the primary message or main graphic. It must be secondary to your main message and Licensed Product or company identity.
  • Do not use the Apple logo on its own or in conjunction with an MFi logo.
  • Do not animate, rotate, or tilt an MFi logo.
  • Do not alter the logo artwork in any way.
  • Do not use graphics or images from Apple’s website.
  • Do not translate or localize the logotype, and do not add words or model numbers.
  • Do not render the artwork to look 3D. Do not add effects such as shadows or glows around the logo.
  • Never place an MFi logo on Licensed Products. Do not engrave it on an accessory and do not use a sticker to affix it to an accessory.
  • Do not affix a sticker of the MFi logo to your package or other communications. The MFi logo must be integrated into the package design and printed on the package.
  • Do not add a trademark symbol (™) or registered trademark symbol (®) to the MFi logo.

 

Do not use two or more MFi single-product logos together. Instead use a multiple-product logo as shown in MFi multiple-product logos.

Do not reverse the logo colors. Do not change the order of Apple product names.

Do not change the font, the color, or any of the elements of the logo. Do not tilt or animate the logo.

Do not use the Apple logo.

1.7 Examples

 

 

The MFi logo is clearly subordinate to the company or Licensed Product name. The correct wording is used to identify the Apple models for which the Licensed Product is designed. See Compatibility Messaging.

 

An MFi multiple-product logo can be used on Licensed Product packaging to designate compatibility with more than one Apple product. Display only one MFi logo.

 

Use accurate compatibility messaging and clearly identify the Apple products for which the Licensed Product is designed. See Compatibility Messaging.

1.8 Avoid Mistakes

 

 

Never place an MFi logo on the accessory itself. The logos
are for use only on packaging and Licensed Product–related communications.

Use an MFi logo only in association with your Licensed Product. Do not use a logo when no accessory is mentioned
or when the accessory mentioned is not a Licensed Product.

 

Do not separate the line drawing from the logo and
place it on your layout.

Do not affix a sticker of the MFi logo to your package or
other communications. The MFi logo must be integrated
into the package design and printed on the package.

AirPlay Logo

2.1 Logo versions

The AirPlay logo is provided in a grayscale version for use on printed materials and in an RGB version for use onscreen. The black line art version is for use on low-resolution printed materials for which a line screen will not print legibly.

 

AirPlay logo — grayscale

 

AirPlay logo — black

2.2 Artwork

The .eps version of the grayscale AirPlay logo is available in a range of sizes. Each one can be reduced to fit the requirements of your layout, but cannot be enlarged. The .png version of the logo is for web use. Use the .png file at the size provided. Artwork for the black logo is available in only one size, which can be reduced or enlarged as needed.

2.3 Graphic standards

Minimum size and minimum clear space

 

The minimum height for the logo is 10 mm for printed materials and 30 pixels for onscreen use. The minimum clear space around the logo should be X on all sides, where X is equal to one-quarter the height of the logo. Do not place graphics, type, photographs, or illustrations inside the minimum clear space.

 

The AirPlay logo and the Made for iPod, iPhone, and iPad logo can be placed in separate locations on the package or layout, or they can be placed beside each other. When the logos appear together, the logos should be the same height and follow the minimum size and clear space guidelines shown above.

Logo color

The area within the logo’s outline rule remains white, even on color, black, or photographic backgrounds.

Background color

 

The logo can appear on black or other color backgrounds and on photographic backgrounds, as long as it is clearly legible against the background.

One- and two-color printing

 

The AirPlay logo can be printed in color only when black is not available, as on some one- or two-color printed materials. When black is not available, the line art logo can be printed in the color of the layout, as long as it provides sufficient contrast for clear legibility.

Use accurate compatibility messaging and clearly identify the Apple products for which the Licensed Product is designed. See Compatibility Messaging.

 

Printing on cardboard or colored stock
When printing on plain cardboard shipping or packing boxes or on colored paper stock, it is acceptable for the color of the stock to show through the AirPlay logo and MFi logo (white is not required within the logos). This type of printing is usually low resolution, and the black AirPlay logo is recommended.

Featuring Apple Products

3.1 Basics

Apple products can be used only to clarify that your accessory works with or connects to the Apple product.

Do not use the power of the Apple brand to enhance your package or communication. For example:

  • An Apple product image should not dominate your layout.
  • Do not show multiple Apple products unless necessary to clarify how your accessory works.
  • Do not emphasize or focus on the Apple logo on Apple products.

Do not imitate Apple packaging or marketing communications. Your packaging and promotions should reflect the style of your company and Licensed Product brands.

Do not use a Myriad font to name or describe Apple products in text. Use typography that conforms with the type style of your communications.

3.2 Photography

If you photograph an Apple product with a Licensed Product, follow the guidelines in 3.4 Do’s and Don’ts.

3.3 Illustration

Use line art illustrations of Apple products only in an instructional manner to clarify how your accessory works with the Apple product. Line art illustrations should be simple and straightforward in style, without embellishments or special illustration techniques.

Do not separate the line drawing from an MFi logo for use on your layout. Do not use Apple-provided compatibility icons as illustrations.

3.4 Do’s and Don’ts

Do

  • Feature only the most current Apple products.
  • For iOS devices, show only these color options:
    • iPhone 6 Plus in silver or space gray
    • iPhone 6 in silver or space gray
    • iPod touch in blue or space gray
    • iPad Air in silver or space gray
    • iPad mini in silver or space gray
  • Maintain separation from competing devices. Do not group Apple products with products from other companies.
  • Multiple Apple products can be shown on the same layout only to demonstrate an MFi accessory’s capabilities. Do not overlap multiple Apple products. Maintain the correct relative product sizes whenever multiple Apple products are shown.
  • Secure the display rights to any trademarks or copyrighted material that you display on the Apple product screen.
  • Place promotional copy, violators, or bursts beside the Apple product, not on top of it.
  • Display and print Apple product images at a size and image resolution that is clearly legible in the medium used.
  • Include Apple credit lines wherever legal information is provided.

Don’t

  • Do not alter or distort an Apple product in any way. The product’s color, shape, size, and form must be accurate.
  • Do not crop or cut off any part of an Apple product. Show it in its entirety.
  • Do not create buttons or interface icons with an Apple product.
  • Do not show an Apple product at an extreme angle.
  • Do not animate, flip, spin, or rotate an Apple product.
  • Do not feature Apple product functions; focus on your accessory’s functionality.
  • Do not show an Apple product along with a competing product from another manufacturer.
  • Do not use an Apple product to emphasize the Apple brand. Your accessory should stand on its own merits.
  • Do not emphasize the Apple brand by featuring the Apple logo on the back of Apple products.
  • Do not display a blank screen.
  • Do not add special effects such as highlights, blurring, color, or texture to the image of an Apple product.
  • Do not add graphic elements that appear to enter or come out of the Apple product screen.
  • Do not die-cut a printed promotion in the shape of an Apple product.
  • Do not use graphics or images from Apple’s website or the App Store. Do not imitate Apple layouts.
  • Do not cover any part of the Apple product image with violators, bursts, or promotional type.
  • Do not overlap multiple Apple products.
  • Do not clutter Apple products with additional props or other accessories. Feature only your accessory.
  • Do not engage in “suspension of disbelief” by showing Apple products or your accessory in a fantastic or unrealistic manner. Do not show Apple products or MFi accessories engaging in actions they are not capable of performing, such as flying through the air or swimming underwater.
  • Do not use Apple product images on any disposable packaging or food industry promotions. Use the Apple product name in text only.

3.5 Product Screens

Follow these guidelines for images shown on Apple product screens.

  • The Apple product’s most current default Home screen can be shown with the backlight on.
  • If the status bar is clearly visible, make sure that the battery and Wi-Fi icons are full and that no carrier name is displayed.
  • Album art can be shown on an Apple product screen provided that your company has the rights to use it.
  • If you are a developer with an approved app in the App Store or the Mac App Store, imagery that appears naturally onscreen while the app is running can be shown on the Apple product screen.
  • User interface functions, such as an iOS keyboard, can be shown only if they are pertinent to your MFi accessory.
  • Do not show a blank screen.
  • Do not display any content on an Apple product screen that you do not own the rights to display.
  • Do not display promotional messaging or graphics on an Apple product screen.

 

On the Apple product screen, display neutral imagery that does not detract from your accessory. You must own display rights and privileges for any imagery shown. The simple landscape shown in this example allows viewers to focus on the MFi accessory. Video functionality is indicated by the inclusion of video controls.

Avoid mistakes
Never place promotional copy or graphics on the Apple product screen. Do not display complex imagery that detracts from your accessory.

3.6 Copyright-protected artwork

Promotional imagery from the entertainment industry is usually copyright protected. Copyright protection is granted to album cover art, music and movie promotional material, photos of artists and entertainment industry professionals, and many promotional images and videos. Anytime copyright-protected imagery is displayed on an iPod, iPhone, or iPad screen in your communications, your company must have sufficient rights and privileges to use that imagery. If your company does not have the rights to use the imagery, it must be removed and replaced.

3.7 Editorial Guidelines

Requirements

You may use Apple product names in a referential phrase on your packaging to indicate that the Licensed Product is compatible with the Apple product or products mentioned, provided that you comply with the following requirements:

  • Apple product names are not part of your accessory name, model number, or SKU.
  • Apple product names are used in a referential phrase such as “for use with,” “for,” or “compatible with.”
  • Apple product names are less prominent than your accessory name.

iPod, iPhone, iPad

When using the names iPod, iPhone, and iPad in headlines or body copy, always typeset a lowercase i and an uppercase P followed by lowercase letters. The name iPod, iPhone, or iPad should start with a lowercase i even when it is the first word in a sentence, paragraph, or title.

AirPlay

When using the name AirPlay in headlines or body copy, always typeset AirPlay as one word with an uppercase Aand uppercase P.

Never use the AirPlay logo within headlines or body copy in place of the name AirPlay. Use the name AirPlay in text when it appears in headlines or body copy.

Do

  • Always use Apple product names in singular form. For example, never say iPhones, iPads, or iPods.
  • Typeset all headlines and body copy in your promotions in a manner that is consistent with your company’s identity. Match the font used in the rest of your communication when typesetting Apple product names and trademarks.
  • When using Apple trademarks in text, spell them exactly as shown on the Apple Trademark List atapple.com/legal/intellectual-property/trademark/appletmlist.html.
  • Attribute Apple trademarks with the correct credit lines as described in Credit lines and trademark symbols. For more information, refer to the “Guidelines for Using Apple Trademarks and Copyrights” atapple.com/legal/intellectual-property/guidelinesfor3rdparties.html.
  • In communications distributed only in the United States, the appropriate symbol (™, ℠, or®) must follow each Apple trademark the first time it is mentioned in body copy.

Don’t

  • Do not translate iPod, iPhone, iPad, AirPlay, Lightning,or any other Apple trademark. Always set Apple trademarks in English, even when they appear within text in a language other than English.
  • Do not copy or imitate Apple advertising, marketing, or messaging for iPhone, iPad, iPod, or AirPlay.
  • Do not use headlines, copy, icons, or images from Apple’s website at www.apple.com or from iTunes, the App Store, or the Mac App Store.
  • Do not refer to Apple operating systems without also including the relevant Apple products to describe compatibility. See Compatibility Messaging.
  • Do not list Apple product names that are not compatible with your accessory.
  • Do not imitate Apple typography. Your messaging should match the typographical style of the rest of your communication.
  • Do not indicate any kind of sponsorship or endorsement by Apple.

Compatibility Messaging

4.1 iPod, iPhone, and iPad models

You must communicate on the product packaging of your Licensed Product which iPod, iPhone, and iPad models are supported. To communicate compatibility, you may either list the model names in text or use the icons provided by Apple. See Apple-provided compatibility icons. Display either the model names or the icons, not both. Model names are provided in iPod, iPhone, and iPad model names.

If your Licensed Product is compatible with multiple Apple products (iPhone, iPad, iPod), list the iPhone model names, then the iPad model names, then the iPod model names.

It is preferred that models are listed with one model name on each line. Do not combine multiple model designations in a listing. For example, do not say: iPhone 5 and 4s. List each product separately:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4s

If layout space does not accommodate a list, the model names can be placed in one or more lines of text with commas separating the names. Models must be listed from newest to oldest. However, if more than two generations of the same model are listed, the generations must be placed in sequence from lowest to highest. If models are placed in a line of text, make sure the length of the line provides clear legibility. Extremely long lines of text can be difficult to read.

To place more than two generations on the same line of text, follow each ordinal number by a comma and place the word and before the last ordinal number. Do not use an ampersand. For example, to list three iPod nano generations, say: iPod nano (5th, 6th, and 7th generation).

If you are listing more than three models for a product, you can list the lowest ordinal number through the highest ordinal number followed by the word generation. For example, to list five generations for iPod nano, it is acceptable to say: iPod nano (2nd through 6th generation). Do not substitute a dash or a hyphen for the wordthrough.

It is preferred that generation is spelled in full. The word generation can be abbreviated as gen only when layout space is extremely limited, such as on very small packaging.

Some models, such as iPod with video, vary in thickness according to capacity. If your accessory is thickness specific, identify the supported thicknesses by listing the capacities in gigabytes. Capacities should be placed in parentheses following the model description. Separate capacities with commas (don’t use and) and end with the word only—for example: iPod with video (30GB only) or iPod with video (60GB, 80GB only).

4.2 Apple-provided compatibility icons

 

Apple provides line art icons to represent the different iPod, iPhone, and iPad models for the purpose of indicating compatibility only. These icons are for use only on Licensed Product–related communications, including advertising, packaging, manuals, and web pages. The icons cannot be placed permanently on the accessory itself. Do not affix the icons to your packaging with a sticker. They must be incorporated into the packaging layout and printed on the package.

Use the Apple product icons only to indicate accessory compatibility. Do not use the icons as illustrations. The compatibility icons must be used in a manner consistent with the “iPod, iPhone, and iPad Icons Guidelines” and the “Guidelines for Using Apple Trademarks and Copyrights” at www.apple.com/legal/intellectual-property/guidelinesfor3rdparties.html. An icon may not be used as a trademark for your accessory or services, including any usage as part of an accessory or company name or any usage that could serve as a source identifier for your accessory.

Logo artwork files and guidelines are available for download in the Marketing Materials section of the MFi Portal Document Center.

4.3 iPod, iPhone, and iPad model names

On product packaging, you must list all Apple product models supported by your accessory, using the exact wording and capitalization shown here. List models from newest to oldest. Start your list with the phrase “Made for.”

“Made for” and “generation” can be translated when they appear in text.
