    IT JUST WORKS!

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I have purchased 4 of these cables in the past 2 years because of my increasing need to have this cable. I have gone from 1 to 3 IOS devices in this amount of time, and I don't see anything wrong with the OEM cables. I can't say the same thing for the third party cable sold outside of apples website, but I have never broken any of my cables. They last so long, I lose them before they break! I have kept these cables for 18 months at a time, charging iPads, and even under a high load of 12W iPad charging, these things DONT BREAK. :)

    Very durable if you treat it GENTLY!!!

    • Written by from Chandler

    This new cable is much much better than the old 30-pin cable. It is very nice that it is reversible. A lot of people are saying that the cord near the lightning plug eventually shrivels up and stops working. Well, mine has been working perfectly ever since I got it with my iPhone 5S in May. As long as you treat your cord gently, it won't break!

    no problems for 2 years

    • Written by from San Diego

    I have had 2 of these cables since the iPhone 5 first came out. I keep one at home and one in my car adapter. I have had no problems. I love how fast they charge my phone and transfer data. I just bought a two meter one for work. I have no idea what the fuss is. Trollers?

    Awesome Cable

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    I have 5 lightning cables for almost 2 years now. They are used in various conditions (home, office, and car). There has never been an issue with quality.

    Huge improvement

    • Written by from Teulon

    These are way better than the old 30-pin cables. Only one of mine have broken between the 3 I had for my iPod, iPhone, and iPad, and that was because I lent it to someone who didn't realize that bending the cable breaks it. To all the people who say the cables break to easily, all I have to say is that you need to take better care of it. When you're using it and when you're not, you should be taking care of it. If you do, it'll last long and you won't have to keep buying replacements.

    No problems for me

    • Written by from Oregon City

    Don't know what people are doing when they say they're on their 3rd / 4th / 5th cable in a year! I've had mine for 21 months so far - plug my phone in every night, plus it travels with me on business and vacation, when I roll it up loosely (about 2.5" diameter loop). Maybe people are winding it around a pencil... I believe this was $29 when it first came out, now it has at least come down to $19 - still a little steep, but a more reasonable price. Some issue with the price, but have had no issue with the quality.

    Great Cable!

    10 Months - Still GREAT!

    • Written by from Ridgewood

    I have had two lightning cables (one that came with the iPhone, one that i purchased) back in October 2013. They both still work great and they haven't frayed at all or twisted (like the older iPhone cables have for the 4S and older models). I practically keep my phone charged at home and work all day and all night. However, it should be noted that I have an iPhone 5S, and maybe the syncing is better with this newer model.

    Never had a problem

    • Written by from Escondido

    I've had the original cable that I got with my iPhone 5, and I've never had any issues with it. I like that I can plug it in without there being a 'right' way.

    They work like they should

    • Written by from Madison

    I bought my iPod touch 5th gen and a charger just in case on March 19th, 2013, so a little over a year ago. The charger still works fine. Im not sure how this product is receiving 1 and a half stars. My charger was stationary in my room so nothing broke off and no wires were exposed. The wire itself is thick and slightly hard to bend, much harder to bend than the earpods. I assume these chargers would break after months of wrapping around so i think its best that you leave your charger in a stationary spot. In other words, leave you charger in one spot and it should work perfectly fine.

    Pretty Great

    • Written by from Billings

    I don''t understand all these fools who are giving this cable one star. As long as you don't twist the connector to shreds, these are pretty durable. And you really can't beat a reversible design. I also love how lightning can provide enough power to charge my Phone and my Pad, unlike my roommate's Android devices with micro-USB.

    Don't read the one star reviews. This cable is excellent.

    What is everyones problem?

    • Written by from Basalt

    Great new design. I have 8 cables working different product at different locations and all work fine with no issues. I don't understand the durability issues. Apple has always been the best made product. Sometimes that means expensive, but it is worth it!

    Works great if you're gentle

    • Written by from Allen Park

    Hello, I have no issues with this cable. You must insert and pull out the cable on the phone end using the plastic part. Never pull or push on the wire itself. I believe that's how people are breaking them. Had mine 2 years and it still looks and works like new.

    I have had my cable that came with my iPhone 5s since December. It has worked fine and has had no problems. If everyone would take care of their cables like they take care of their phones I don't think there would be problems.

    Different Lengths

    • Written by from Garden City

    I noticed some reviewers complaining about the cord being too short and wanting one 5 or 6 feet long. Cant they see it comes in .5 meters, 1 m, or 2m? (2 meters being over 6 feet long!). I LOVE THIS OPTION! I wish every manufacturer made this option available.

    Great cable, when used right

    • Written by from London

    Had a few problems with my first one as I was a bit rough with it, but went into my local Apple Store and got it replaced under my warranty. The employee in store told me about cable management and recommended me to google more good cable management practices and it's helped ton. Went into the store super angry and came out feeling stupid, I definitely don't roll it up and toss it around anymore.

    Beware of pocket lint

    • Written by from Plainfield

    After less than two years with my iPhone5 I was about to buy a third lightning cable. Why, because it was no longer charging my phone. I checked in with one of the geniuses at the Apple store and explained that up until recently I had to wiggle the cable in order to get it positioned properly in for it to charge. The SOLUTION SHE APPLIED WAS TO REMOVE THE LINT FROM THE IPHONE LIGHTNING CONNECTOR. PROBLEM SOLVED. NO NEW CABLE NEEDED. Genius Suggestion, place phone in pocket with connector at the top.
