    A nifty device.

    • Written by from Blaine

    I like the fact that this connector is small and can connect to the iPhone in either direction - there's no getting it wrong. The problem I have with it is that it appears to be easily broken. Luckily, I've not broken mine, yet. Sadly, when I bought my iPhone, Apple did not have more of these cables in stock. Still, huge improvement over the previous Dock Connector.

    Expensively Cheap

    • Written by from Everett

    I love Apple and their devices but I've had to replace this cord three times in the last year and now I'm onto a forth. For how costly these cords are, they should be able to last longer than just a few short months. Please fix this!!

    A waste of money

    • Written by from oxford

    I've had the iPhone 5s for 9 months and this cord has now broken for the second time. After replacing the first one because I thought it's was a defect the second one has the same exact problem. Many people have this problem too. The rubber outer tube starts bunching up at one end and then you have to spend forever moving the cord around so the phone actually charges and after that it just stops all together. I do not want to replace this for a second time knowing it will happen again. Come on Apple you use to have quality products and now that's gone.

    I hate this cord and the monopoly of Apple

    • Written by from COLLIERVILLE

    This cord is a piece of garbage. I have had my iPhone 5 for 2 years and gone through 4 of these cords because they always break. I am not rough with these cords but unfortunately they are made just like everything else from this generation, cheap and made to break.

    BullPoop

    • Written by from Toronyo

    I had my iPad mini for 5 month now and I'm already on my THIRD charger! THIS IS HONESTLY REDONCULOUS AS PEWDIEPIE SAYS! The Chargers are 21 freakin dollars each and they don't even last! I have a Samsung for 3 years and it's first charger still works wonderfully! LIKE COME ON! We pays $20 for ever single charger! You can do better! I bet the budget for a charger right now is like what, 5 cents? Look at all the negative comments Apple! It's getting frustrating!

    Horrible, Horrible, Horrible.

    • Written by from Winter Park

    When I bought my iPhone 5 (the week it came out) I was so excited, as I was switching over from Android, & the new lightning chargers looked so much nicer than the old ones, & more practical in size. My original charger broke within a month. Since then, I have literally gone through at the very LEAST 20 of these babies, & I am not even exaggerating. The money I have spent on replacements I could have bought a new phone with! Granted at first, I WAS being a bit rough on them (yanking them out by the cord, etc). I quickly realised how fragile these chargers were & started being much more careful & gentle with them. Alas, they STILL break far too easily. I've tried about every brand I've come across. Cheaper ones break in about a week, ones from my phone shop last a month or two, maybe three. This is absolutely ridiculous & I expected WAY more from Apple. Please work on the quality of these chargers, they are god-awful no matter where you buy them from. As much as I love my phone, I am just about ready to go back to Android if something is not done about these terrible chargers. If I could, I would have given this zero stars.

    Prefer the original cords

    • Written by from London

    I absolutely hate the new cord. I bought an extra one to keep in my purse in case of emergencies. It broke and the original one already broke. They don't even last a few months. You would think for spending $21 they would be durable. The old original ipod chargers, I loved how they locked and also how they lasted.

    Frustrating

    • Written by from Toronto

    I'm on my 3rd apple lighting cable for an iPhone I bought in March - not even 8 months of use!!. When I borrowed a friend's cable (because mine kept failing) I got a warning message on my iPhone saying the cable was not a certified apple product and may not work properly. It then refused to charge my phone. It's frustrating that this cable is wreaking havoc on so many loyal Apple consumers. Apple - you need to fix this!!

    Cord frays and stops working.

    • Written by from Fond du Lac

    The outer coating on this cord started to fray after only a few months. The inner wires didn't fare much better and the cord stopped working shortly after. I've owned Apple products for years and didn't have problems like this with the 30 pin cables. for what these cables cost they should last longer. I only gave the product one star because zero isn't an option.

    Worst charger cable out there!

    • Written by from Spring vile

    I have bought several of these cables and everyone of them broke, and I own the iPod touch 5th generation. They're horrible, I don't like what apple has done with this new charger cable. They need to change it or go back to the old one. This one just breaks to easy and only lasts a couple months. Apple needs to do something because a ton of people are disappointed in this product. They need to change the cable to something a little more sturdy.

    Product recall

    • Written by from Oldham

    This product should have been recalled and an apology given to every iPhone user who has had to deal with it.

    A replacement should be given immediately at any Apple store, no questions asked.

    Poor show Apple.

    Insulting product at an insulting price...

    • Written by from PLATTSBURG

    Haven't even had my iPhone 5s for a month and the Lightning Cable is already pulling apart at the phone connector end.

    I treat my electronics very well, so this is unacceptable. My girlfriend is probably on her third lightning cable for her iPad.

    This is very un-Apple like. You pay more for Apple products because of the quality. With this junk cable, you're paying for the Apple name and getting garbage.

    Maybe you should look down from that tall ivory Apple, and see that you are dragging your own name in the mud?

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

    • Written by from San Diego

    I've been through 8 lightning cables in the past year and the all broke the same exact way. There's no way in the world I can unplug this cable without damaging it. This design is very terrible, I have never twisted nor bent. But somehow the wires were ripped for the connector part, and the part that covered the wires connect just comes off. So once agian me saying, there is literally no way to unplug your device without damaging the plug. Please find a way to make it durable because this is very annoying and I'm very tired of buying a new charger every two months or so.

    Garbage, 1 star is too much.

    • Written by from Washoe Valley

    I bought my iPhone 5s the first of march, it's not even may yet and I have already had to buy an off brand replacement charger. I don't use my cord anywhere except on my nightstand next to my bed. I plug it in when I go to sleep and unplug it when I wake up. I don't bend or twist the cord in any direction and the cord has completely stopped working, will not charge my phone except for a second here and there unless I pinch the cord right at the base, and I don't know about you but I don't want to have to sit and hold my cord until my phone is completely charged. I still have several original cords from my first iPod, both iPhone 3's, as well as both my iPhone 4&4s. Every single one of them still work perfectly. I have had this one for barely 2 months and it has stopped working. It is complete and utter BS considering the price of a replacement cord from Apple. I have been a loyal apple customer since the iPod and I feel like I've been cheated with this new creation. They should have stuck with the old charger, or at least do a recall and redesign the charger for the new phones. I love my iPhone but if the reliability of this cord shows how apple is going to start doing things I am going to sell my phone and buy an android. Fix this apple, or you'll be losing a lot of very loyal and valued customers.

    Sincerely,
    A very unhappy customer

    Absolutely Terrible Quality and Time Consuming to Replace

    • Written by from Tempe

    Upon reading the rest of these reviews I realize that I have not even endured the worst of it. I just bought my first iPhone in October and I cannot believe that my charger doesn't work all of the sudden. I can't believe we all spent this much money on an iPhone just to get such a terrible charger that is not only expensive to replace but just utterly reliable altogether. I have tried to call Apple Care and Apple Support at least 5 times just to try and receive a new charger since my phone is still under warranty and the amount of trouble I have gone through just to attempt to retrieve a new one is unbelievable. This product is not worth any of the time and trouble I have gone through.

    Awful, Unreliable and Missing the 4 charger

    • Written by from Washington

    Iphone 5 charger is awful... I am on my 6th charger in 8 months. I would have stuck with the 4 had I known that I would have to go through this hassle.

    It is such a nuisance to never be able to completely rely on the charger for your phone because the charger is all around bad and unreliable. The reason I left android is due to the fact that there were bad chargers and phones died often. I now am very sad to say that I feel as if I am back in android world. Hopefully the 6 will have better hope.
