I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose in the top of the cable (where it enters the device), then it will only work when it is pulled or pushed into certain directions, until eventually it will not work at all. Im sick of wasting money on these cablels. A new cable must be brought out. …

Never An Issue With This Cable
I have had the same cable since my upgrade to iPhone 5S 2 years ago. The cable and charger came in the box and have never let me d I have had the same cable since my upgrade to iPhone 5S 2 years ago. The cable and charger came in the box and have never let me down. I am reading through all the negative comments on here and having owned the iPhone 4, iPod, and iPad that all share the same wide pin adapter I think Apple went out of its way with regard to innovation to redesign the housing, motherboard assembly, and all associated peripherals that will run the new equipment with these cables. This cable is not as fragile as its predecessors. We all need to remember that they are not meant to be wrapped around fingers or just yanked out of the sockets or bent at angles that NOTHING should be bent at. My cable is going to last until I ipgrade to the iPhone 6, and then when I hand this phone down to my daughter it will be broken. Do I know why? Yes. Because my daughter is not careful with her electronics, falls asleep with iPad and iPhone in bed and cables bent awkwardly as she sleeps. Do I get mad? No. Why. Because the cable was designed for people to use per the instructions and though I looked, there was no section on protecting a cable from a teenager. Sorry, everyone, but some (not all) of us need to look at what we are asking these cables to do before complaining. Yes, I do understand that manufacturing errors can arise and affect a large amount of material and those need to be dealt with. Giving it 1 star for being too short? Cmon... …

Hope this helps. …
