    I still have at least 8 '30 pin' cables for iPods, iPhones & iPads, which have all lasted all this time, with not one fault.
    Sin I still have at least 8 '30 pin' cables for iPods, iPhones & iPads, which have all lasted all this time, with not one fault.
    Since my partner and I bought each other the iPhone 5 in January, we've had 3 faulty 'Lightning' cables each. Yes, Apple will replace them under the warranty, providing you return the faulty one! If not, they will relieve your credit card of £15.00 and leave you with yet another cable which will break within a month.
    This is clearly a very poor design and one which needs to be addressed by Apple immediately.
    Come on guys. Your quality control is going down the pan here!

    Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish!! I've just spent over £700 on a new iPhone and I can't charge the blimin thing!! Having dealt with the Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish!! I've just spent over £700 on a new iPhone and I can't charge the blimin thing!! Having dealt with the same faulty cable issue with my previous iphone for over a year where I was forced to purchase a new cable every couple of months, I was hoping Apple would have sorted this issue by now but the lighting cables are as dodgy as ever. I completely regret buying another Apple phone simply because of this issue. It's like throwing money down the drain, £15 to be exact, every time the cable decides to stop working or my phone decides that it 'doesn't support this accessory'. I used to rely on my phone for such things as receiving and making calls, sending messages, using the alarm clock to get me up for work etc but not any longer as I can never guarantee that my phone will have any power. I've spent thousands of pounds on iPhones, iPads and iTunes but now I really wish that I'd gone for a Samsung phone for a stress free "being able to use my phone type thing" life.
    P.S Up until they die, my charging cables are treated with much love and preciousness. I don't abuse them and my last cable still only lasted 10 weeks. I quite simply don't understand how Apple can make something as technical and advanced as an iPhone but can't make a simple cable that works and can withstand normal wear & tear. Sort it outApple!!!!!

    We have several Apple products in our household including I-Phone 5's, an I-Pod 5th Gen and I-Pad and the Lightning cables fail on We have several Apple products in our household including I-Phone 5's, an I-Pod 5th Gen and I-Pad and the Lightning cables fail one by one, normally when they’re out of guarantee. I had a discussion at an Apple store, but was made to feel that it was my fault and needed to take more care with the use of the lead. The leads seem to weaken at the point where the cable goes into the device connector. On the older generation devices, the cable was thicker and the cable coating was a lot tougher therefore protecting the wires better. Another problem is that the connector is difficult to remove from the device due to the small shiny surface area of the connector and the high unplugging force required. This may contribute to the failing of so many leads due to people pulling on the lead to remove the connector. If you remember, the old connector had release buttons and once pressed the connector released with ease. I like Apple products, they are very well designed and very robust, but the Lightning USB cable lets them down by a mile. I’m considering buying a competitors phone that uses a micro USB connection, because I know that these cables are less likely to fail and if they do I can buy a cheap alternative cable, not one that’s costing £15 every time (Apple Tax). This seems to be such a common fault, you would think that Apple would do something about it, or at least make replacement leads more affordable.

    The replacement bought from the well known internet retailer's basic range is hard wearing and does the job better

    Disappointing
