    I got the iPhone 5 4 months ago and this cable that I received with my phone doesn't work anymore. The cable I had with my iPhone I got the iPhone 5 4 months ago and this cable that I received with my phone doesn't work anymore. The cable I had with my iPhone 4, I had for 2 years with no problems at all. So I find it very strange that the lighting cord can stop working so easily. Even the cord for my first generation iPod touch which is 6 years old and it still works. Now I have to go buy another cord and spend more money to keep using my phone. I hope the issue gets fixed soon because I don't want to keep buying new lighting cords every 4 months.

    It's unfortunate that this cord is so necessary. I've gone through three different lightning cords in the four months I've had my It's unfortunate that this cord is so necessary. I've gone through three different lightning cords in the four months I've had my iPhone 5. All three have inexplicably stopped working. Each has gotten a short in the cord where it meets the lightning end though I've been careful to leave them straight, treat them gently (especially since the first failed). With my current cord, I have to hold the lightning end of the cord in a certain direction to get it to work.

    On top of that, when it happens to short out, it interferes with the electric current, disabling linked ports. i.e. when it shorts out in any of my computers' USB ports, the other ports become inactive as well (disabling my external hard drive and USB mouse); when it is plugged in a charger with multiple outputs, the other outputs become inactive as well.

    After buying several chargers, three iPods, three iPhones, and an iPad, I had amassed ten of the old 30-pin connectors. All ten work just as well as they did when I brought them home; I took it for granted that I never had an issue with any of them.

    Not up to usual Apple quality standards. Breaks down with normal use.

    Not sure why there's so many negative reviews, but I've had my cable for nearly year and it's only now showing signs of distress. Not sure why there's so many negative reviews, but I've had my cable for nearly year and it's only now showing signs of distress. Took it to the Apple store today and since it's still within my warranty, they exchanged it for me free of charge. Since I purchased AppleCare+ for my iPhone 5s, my cable is also covered under the extended warranty.

    I am SICK and TIRED of having to replace. I have gone through no less than 5 cables over the past year with normal use.

    Never before have I been so INFURIATED by Apple. I have been through FOUR of these Cables in the last FOUR MONTHS. The quality and Never before have I been so INFURIATED by Apple. I have been through FOUR of these Cables in the last FOUR MONTHS. The quality and design of this product is truly pathetic, how can Apple be charging such an extortionate price for these horrendous leads which appear to only last up to a month. Might I add that all four leads, of which are still in my possession,appear to be in PERFECT condition on the exterior, though each one has failed due to obvious internal reasons of which I do not know. As if to frustrate me further, after the purchase of my mac pro for Christmas, within a month of having the product, the same issue has arrived with my charging lead. This is becoming trdiously repetitive and I can honestly say that I will not be upgrading my iPhone to the newest model this continues to happen. I am NOT the kind of person who can afford to shed out 15-20 pound on each new lead I must order to maintain the use of my iPhone. Apple's reputation is truly going to be at stake if they do not do something to compensate those of whom this issue has affected and for the clearly inevitable problems for the future.
