    I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable.

I need a longer one: 5-6 ft for charging and a shorter one 6"-1 ft for connecting to my MacBook for syncing and updating. Don't know why this hasn't been done much sooner!

  • Verified to be 3.5 foot long cable - works with existing wall and car plugs

    I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they are about 3.5 feet long. About the same as previous Apple charging cables. Really, Apple should make them all 6ft long, which is why I am giving this 4 stars.

    Since 3.5 feet is not usually long enough for most uses, search amazon for "white USB extension" from C2G in 3ft, 6ft or 9ft extension cables for about $2 to $5 dollars, which can then be put in between the wall power brick (or car port adapter) and this cable.

    Existing power transformers with a USB jack on them (for home or car power port) that worked with your iPhone 3gs, 4 or 4s, should work fine with this new cable and the iPhone 5. 1 amp (1a = 5 watts) is standard for iPhones. 2 amp (2a = 10 watts) is standard for iPads. But it's well known, that if you buy 2 amp (10w) power plug then your iPhone 5 will charge in about 60% of the time. I like the PowerGen brand 10w chargers from amazon for $10.

    Yes, they changed the connector. Yes it's kind of a hassle. But that's progress for you & I prefer this cable. No more fumbling in Yes, they changed the connector. Yes it's kind of a hassle. But that's progress for you & I prefer this cable. No more fumbling in the dark - it just slides right in the right way every time. Apple does need to get a few more in the stores though. But love the new cable and love the new design.

Meaning the connector is smal The whole idea of the lightning cable is to save precious real estate on the devices that use them. Meaning the connector is smaller, so it frees up more room for other hardware. The connector can be inserted unidirectionally, so no more fumbling around trying to find the right direction in the dark. Most people that write reviews for such an overlooked item are writing it, because they don't like it, but thats such a vast minority in comparison to the number that do like and don't write the review. I haven't had a problem with any of the lightning cables I've used. Are there going to be faulty units? Of course, but the design and functionality is far better than the 30 pin cable. Again you have to consider the percentage of people that write reviews for cables will be largely those who received faulty ones, because everyone expects them to work. Obviously if you looking at reviews for lighting cables, then you have a device that uses one, so you already know that it works.

Very poor quality with outer layer peeling off or cable not charging the ipod. I still have my 30 pin connector from my ipod mini that works great and its over 8 years old. I purchased a galaxy s5 instead of the iPhone due to this lightning cable issue.

    As expected, my third Lightning cable decided to stop working and I've had my phone for less that two years.

    Because I already As expected, my third Lightning cable decided to stop working and I've had my phone for less that two years.

    Because I already had two break on me, I took special care of the last one, but even with handling the cable like a princess, it started to act up and lost its ability to charge the phone. Stupid me didn't even save the receipts.

    I do like my Apple products, but the build quality is really bad on this cable.

    I recommend saving and photocopying the receipt so that you may get a new cable from Apple when it will surely break.
    The other suggestion I have is to make sure when you get the cable, to make sure it never twist or turns by adding some extra tape to both ends of the cable. Maybe that will prevent the shoddy solders from breaking loose.
