    Chargers are the worst on the market.

    • Written by from O FALLON

    I too am fed up with your chargers. I love Apple products as a rule, but your chargers don't hold up, and then when I buy a n alternate version, you have found a way to insure it won't work or is not compatable. Also, why is it that you have these huge white blocks on your chargjng cords. They act like weights that also add to the issue with cords not holding up. This goes for every charger you mace. Mac book pro chargers to Iphone 6 plus.
    If you all can't figure out how to do it, then make sure you let others (no mac) fix it.

    easy fix for lightning cable

    • Written by from Sarasota

    The first cable that came with the iPhone 6 lasted all of 5 weeks, got a new cable and some heat shrink tubing and put two layers on the cable where the connector is connected to the cable. Solid fix!

    Too fragile

    • Written by from Atlanta

    It doesn't take long under normal use for the plastic coating to break at the point of tension, exposing the metal wires. At $20 for this little thing, can the profit margin really be so tiny that the cord can't be built to last?

    Horrible Quality, Breaks within months.

    • Written by from Kailua-Kona

    In the past year I have thrown away 6 Apple lightning to USB cables. Every single one had the exact same problem. On the Lightning connector, it starts corroding starting in the middle section and gets worse from there. They last 2-3 months tops and then won't charge the iPhones or iPads. Maybe Apple is getting lazy with quality as they are so big now, but thats how companies lose customers. Hopefully they will get their act together and fix this problem.

    Lightning Rage!!!

    • Written by from Aventura

    I can't believe after so many issues and complaints from Apple loyal customers, Apple continues to launch their products using this deficient accessory. I have bought several; Apple or generic; they all have the same problem and end up failing. I am replacing my iPhone 5s (which I love you) for two reasons:
    First One: THESE CABLES
    Second One: Lack of memory expansion slots like Mini SD cards that allow you to increase memory on your phone; with 16GB, if you leave your phone light enough maybe you are lucky enough as to update its operating system software every time there is a new release. Otherwise you are stuck until you free up memory.
    So I have decided to take the easier approach to ease of life; I need a phone, like the convenience of apps and the easiness and friendliness of miniusb chargers, plus I want to take pictures and music with me at a reasonable cost. I am going with HTC M8 today, and replacing my iMac with a friendly Windows hybrid laptop. Will keep an old iPad because there is some aviation software that only runs on IPad. End of the story and bad press for Apple. I am sure if Steve was still with us he wouldn't allow this to happen!!!!

    Please go back to old coating

    • Written by from West Long Branch

    I am tired of having to replace your chargers every other month because of the material you use to coat the wire causing the chargers to scrunch up and short circuit, or even fray. Yet you people wonder why people would rather send 5-15 bucks less or even MORE money than your brand on third party chargers. The coating used on your older chargers was good and this was one of the most pointless switches I have ever seen. My iPod charger from 2003 is still being used on my older iPhone that i use for games when connected to the house wifi. An 11 year old charger that still works because it wasn't designed to break every few months. People shell out lots of money for your macbooks and phones, yet you guys went cheaper over the years on your chargers and expect everyone to be ok with shelling out 20 bucks per charger then get mad when people look for other options. The ratings on all of your charging devices speak for themselves. THis has gotten ridiculous over the years.

    An epic fail

    • Written by from Huntsville

    I actually have to worry whether my Apple devices are charging, and that is very poor reflection on Apple and their quality control (or lack thereof). The connection simply goes bad between the male plug and the female socket. Use of these cables is an epic fail on Apple's part. I like their products, but I do not like their unwillingness to admit mistakes.

    Cheap Junk!!!

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    Bought the Iphone 5 after 3 months the cord broke. I have the 3rd generation Ipod (2003) and 2 cords and never had a problem with the cords and both still work. I hope you are reading these reviews, for $20 please make these cords more durable so we don't have to keep spending $20 on these cheap things.

    Worst cable ever made,

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I've had my phone for 1.5 years now and I have purchased nine charging cables for my phone. After the fourth Apple charger broke I just started buying the cheap five dollar charges because I could afford to lose five dollars every month. If I could give this product a negative star rating I would. Between the charger and the operating system personally I can't wait for the Samsung galaxy six to come out because I've had it with Apple products.

    Catches Fire!!!

    • Written by from Seattle

    Apple: Please, recall all of these and use a new vendor to manufacture these cables! We've had multiple and they all get broken at the neck - right by the lighting connector end. And yesterday I picked up one to plug in our iPad and burned my fingers! When I looked, I saw that it was smoldering!! I am so lucky. It was laying on the carpet - could have burned down our house! This is unbelievable coming from Apple.

    Disappointed and Enraged

    • Written by from Almonte

    I need to replace my cable every month. I barely move or bend the cables, they just stay on the table where i charge my phone. Despite my best efforts to avoid breaking them, these cables end up unusable. I am sure everyone would appreciate an effort to make cables more durable, even if it were at the expense of appearance.

    EPIC FAIL ON CABLE

    • Written by from Panorama City

    I bought an extra cable for my office and both cables broke at the head.
    Really disappointed with Apple's quality control yet prices remain high. Maybe IT'S TIME for the exodus to PC.

    Chord is low quality, not up to apple standards

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    These chords are terrible. Yet another one just gave out today. The common problem seems to be where the chord connects to the head, it always breaks internally or something like that, no matter how carefully I treat it. I'm fed up with buying these - if you're going to sell a low quality product at least sell it at a price that reflects the quality. Won't be making the jump from ipod touch to iphone until you solve this quality issue. 1 star for the limited use I get out of these.

    TERRIBLE SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT FROM APPLE

    • Written by from Kingston

    There really needs to be a recall, I've been through 7 of these cables and I'm about to buy another. For normal usage, which includes holding the iphone while charged & resting it against my chest the cable is not strong enough.

    There needs to be a recall

    • Written by from Homer Glen

    I've gone thru so many Apple USB Cables it is not even funny. They aren't cheap either. I have a 3rd Generation iPod Touch on its original cable cord and a 5th Generation Touch on its 5 cable or so. I finally decided to go to a third party because they last longer than the Apple Cord. Apple needs to do something with the new USB Cables because it is terrible that they keep going out.
