Earlier if you connect not origins cable a message will warn you that this cable is not original but it will charge the device but I have noticed that a new message saying that this (cable) is not supported by your device and the charging will stop and if you remove and reconnect again it will charge. Is this a new update to the iOS that we don't know about?!

It's one we do know about. It's best to use an Apple lightning cable or one that is certified. If it's not certified, it may cause problems and you will get the pop up warnings. I use a 10' certified monoprice lightning cable, and it works great.

I use chargers that look like it's Apple made, but it's not. I got them on eBay for very cheap. They work for a good while but not as long as the Apple made ones. I used to get the alerts saying this charging cable is not compatible or whatever. Now I don't get any message and it charges just fine.
