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!

    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.

  • SOOO Much Smaller & Better!!!

    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.

  • And it's worse if you use a case

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I've had a half a dozen cables fail, all at the connector end. It is made worse as I have a LifeProof case which further recesses I've had a half a dozen cables fail, all at the connector end. It is made worse as I have a LifeProof case which further recesses the lightning connector so am even more likely to tug on the cable instead of the body of the connector. Also, you can't use the i4 to i5 adapters as the lightning end is to short and can't reach the connector thru the case.
    And it doesn't seem to matter if it's an apple cable or secondary brand, the cable that came with the phone failed within a month, and that was before I bought the case. I'm about ready to make an expoy mold to extend the body and provide a better grip or add heat shrink tubing to reinforce the connector/cable interface. You have to be careful as the lightning connector has chips on both sides inside the connector body.
    Definitely a poor design that Apple apparently failed to test and has not address. A slight lengthening of the body, a slight flare and surface texturing would make it easier to remove without stressing the cable where it meets the body (such as when your fingers slip off the smooth connector surface. I'd give it zero stars but the software won't let you.

  • Disappointed...

    My lightning cable lasted longer than most folks, but I'm still disappointed. I noticed the rubber casing getting bunched up but h My lightning cable lasted longer than most folks, but I'm still disappointed. I noticed the rubber casing getting bunched up but had no problems till yesterday. I heard my phone dinging to indicate charging/not charging over and over. I agree with others, KEEP YOUR WARRANTY INFO. I went to an Apple store, they were extremely helpful and got me a new lightning cable free of charge right away. They looked at it and knew it was worn out. The replacement is FREE if your phone is under warranty, or if you're within 1yr of purchase of a replacement lightning cable. I have downright ancient 30 pin cables that I still use on an old iPhone 4 and they work perfectly, every time.

  • Why are these still so bad?!!

    At this point, I'm convinced that nobody is reading these reviews. That would be the only explanation for the lightning cords bein At this point, I'm convinced that nobody is reading these reviews. That would be the only explanation for the lightning cords being such bad quality. They don't last, and they are super expensive. You would think that after creating all of these ground-breaking products, Apple would be a little more concerned with creating accessories for them that last more than a couple of months.
