Ordering yet another cable
Well, I am now online ordering yet another cable for my daughter's iphone 5. This is at LEAST the 4th or 5th cord I have ordered Well, I am now online ordering yet another cable for my daughter's iphone 5. This is at LEAST the 4th or 5th cord I have ordered for her in the past year. All of a sudden, they just stop working. If it was some $5 cord that I got at the dollar store, I would understand, but this is an Apple product. NOT what you would expect. . .and for there to be no acknowledgement from Apple that these cords do not work when reviewer after reviewer says the same thing is just so. . .un-apple-like. Usually, they are so responsive. Is anyone listening at Apple? Figure out what is wrong with these cords or compensate the consumers by replacing them for free. …

You pay the price you get the quality
I have bought amazon.com junk lighting connectors I ordered two of them at once and got them in the mail one was broke on arrival I have bought amazon.com junk lighting connectors I ordered two of them at once and got them in the mail one was broke on arrival and soon the other broke. So finally I bought this cable which is the same length as the ones I purchased elsewhere and you can feel the cable difference. Worth the money to have the longer cable.
Downside- apple should send these with the device...
Worth the money …

Very disappointed in Apple
I purchased a replacement cord for my iPhone 5s and my iPad Mimi. Both use the same cord. The cord broke just like the first one i I purchased a replacement cord for my iPhone 5s and my iPad Mimi. Both use the same cord. The cord broke just like the first one included with device. I always thought that Apple made high quality products. Boy wae I wrong. What gets me is the longer 6 foot cord is sturdier. Sturdier for the cord part. The Lightning connector on this replacement cord broke just like the first one. The connection point where the cord feeds into the adapter needs better reinforcement so it won't break. I have noticed that most of the reviews for this accessory are very much like this one. With the exception of a few people who I expect haven't had the cord long enough for it to break, the reviews are the same. Your devices are top of the line. Your accessories should be, too. I will order one more cord and depending on the length of time it lasts, I will change to another brand besides Apple. Fix it, because it makes your company seems like it doesn't care. …

Meets My Expectations & Does Its Job Well
First, I'm glad to see a much smaller cable head compared to the 30-pin head from previous generations. I'm also a fan of the new First, I'm glad to see a much smaller cable head compared to the 30-pin head from previous generations. I'm also a fan of the new design which no longer has a hollow component prone to dust/lint. The fact that it's now also omni-directional makes it easier to quickly insert-and-charge.
I'm not sure why so many people complain about the manufacturing quality. Not only do I still have my original cable from my iPhone 5S purchase (December, 2013), but I also have my original cable from my iPod Touch purchase (May, 2013). Both function perfectly just like the first day out of the box, and I've never needed to purchase a replacement cable due to damage.
I use my cable like the (I believe) average customer: charge my iPhone a couple of times a day (in the car and at home), sync my iPhone and laptop weekly, and back it up monthly. Since one cable is always in my car, I use the other everywhere else, constantly unplugging and re-plugging it to take to work, school, then back home, etc. I coil it neatly to prevent kinks, and keep it from ending up under the heavy books in my backpack. Sure, the occasional friend will borrow it for a quick charge, but that's about all... It's not I play tug-o-war with it.
Anyway, take care of this cable like every other normal adult would, and it'll work perfectly fine for at least another generation or two.
... You wouldn't use your iPhone to prop up the short leg of an uneven table, right?
"4 Stars" because it sufficiently meets my expectations.
"5 Stars" if it could brew my coffee. …
