What a rip off! Cable works as advertised yet very disgusted in its price of 29 bucks. Really Apple!?!? Why so high in price, haven't you ripped off countless of others? Ten bucks is all this cord should cost and you still will take in a healthy profit! I don't need a fancy shipping box, etc I just want cables that won't rip me off and probably others agree. AND PLEASE get a 10' cable, but for not so much money that rips the end user off.
I have had my cord since last September. It has worked well without any problems till recently. The past month the plastic that surrounds the cord has split and peeled off, which exposes the wiring underneath. The base of where it plugs into the phone is starting to split, and the connection is not as strong. I love the product and have no issues, but this is a major negative for me. For not even lasting a year, it seems to be a lower quality compared to the past cords from Apple. I will be purchasing a few cords, and I hope it does not repeat this same issue again in the next few months.
