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. …

LOW quality! not up to the apple standard! This cord is WORTHLESS JUNK
I've had an iPhone pretty much since they came out. I have probably 10-15 of the old cords, that are in pretty bad shape…ALL of w I've had an iPhone pretty much since they came out. I have probably 10-15 of the old cords, that are in pretty bad shape…ALL of which STILL work! I broke down and purchased an iPhone 5s when it came out and I've gone through 3-4 cords in the last year alone! This cord is a piece of JUNK! Apple typically has been the gold standard for quality…this is lacking everything apple stands for! If i could recommend another product i would, but its necessary to purchase to charge your phone….yet another reason i question if I will purchase apple again when its time for an upgrade. Apple is falling behind on technology and quality lately …
