    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.

In our household we have 4 iPhone 5 s and each one of us has had problems with the lightening charger, which fails to function after a few months of use . I have taken it back to Apple but had a very bad experience, where they made it difficult to replace. Where is the pride in the product. It is clear that the product is not fit for purposes and no we (all 4 of us) don't yank it out or mistreat.

    Come on Apple take responsibility for the quality of your products and the service to loyal customers. Do they read and monitor these comments?

Frustrating being with out. Ive got through several this past year I find myself having to buy a spare every time so I don't have to be without. I never had this problem before going For Apple phones. Make the price reflect the quality or make durable cables. I use to believe Apple made only quality products but I've been proven wrong.
