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. …

Good cables if a little pricy
I have 5 cables all together for 2 cars, work, home and road trips. I don't like to unplug them My wife and daughter have another I have 5 cables all together for 2 cars, work, home and road trips. I don't like to unplug them My wife and daughter have another 6. Most are Apple and a few are Amazon basics and Belkin. I have also bought several to get correct lengths for car and desk. I probably have bought 18 cables all together. I have never had one of these quit working. I have had issues with chargers not being approved devices, but zero cable failures. I am not easy on the cables either as my travel ones get wrapped around the wall and car chargers for storage. I don't know what all the 1 star ratings are from. My experience is perfect. I also like the easy fit and switch ability. …

Apple makes the worst cables in the history of the computers
3 iPhones, 2 Macs, 1 iPod and 1 iPad latter I can confirm - for me Apple makes the *worst* cables ever.

They are the most easily damageable computer accessory that the man kind has ever produced.
Usually the Apple support is great and changes of the damaged once are possible. Yet it is a shame.
I ended up buying cheap cables from other manufactures, that are ugly (and with thick cables), but usually are times more solid. …
