    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.

    I don't understand all the complaints. What the heck are you doing with your cables. My cable looks used after so many years but still works. Then again, I don't miss treat my cables either.

    Not Even Worth one star

    • Written by from Bangor

    Im furious with these iphone chargers yet again have to go spend $30 to buy a new one because they're cheapy made and don't allow my phone to charge. In less than a year I've had to buy two more chargers and this will be the third because apple can't make a cord that actually works. seriously considering switching to android or samsung just because of a charger. I should't be paying more for chargers a year than i do for data

    enough is enough

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I had no problems with charging until Apple made all other after market cables obsolete and not supported or recognized. Since then I've owned at least 10 cables. How hard is it to make one heavy duty cable? It's not. Which tells me this has all been engineered to be cheap and easily broken. Glad I switched away from iPhone. Yes, just over the crapy cables!!

    Poor quality for sure

    • Written by from Muskegon

    My daughter is constantly replacing her lighting cords. This is honestly a poor design on Apples part, which is pretty sad considering the company. She along with many others are continually throwing their money away and truthfully Apple should offer up so way to fix their "manufacture" defect and fix the port so that you DO NOT have to use a lightning cord and go back to what actually works.
    Time to rethink this one Apple.

    Too bad zero stars isn't an option.

    Terrible longevity for a $20 cable that at the end of the day is like 4 wires and some copper. Shame on you apple for making generic cords also pretty much useless, but still making an overpriced total piece of junk cord

    Got it 7 months ago. a week ago it made a bunch of sound and it is turning black. The wires internally twisted when i open it as it stopped charging, the noises turned out it is shorting out. I gave it 1 star because I can not give it 0 star.

    I have a pile of these broken cords. My family owns 2 ipad minis and 3 iPhones. All original cords are broken! They are expensive to buy! Shame on you Apple for developing such a horrible product! You need to fix this and replace all of my broken cords!

    They break all the time

    • Written by from Burlington

    I really don't do much to my chargers. I leave them plugged into the same spot every day, and I plug my phone in every night. I barely ever coil it up to transport it or anything like that. And yet, in under one year, I've gone through like 5 or 6 of these stupid things. They always work fine at the beginning, and then after a while it starts being really picky about the position the wire is when it's plugged in and i need to move around the wire to make it work, and eventually it just stops working altogether. Terrible, terrible product, and I hate that I have to spend $20 every time one of these cheap pieces of cr*p break.

    Lightning to USB Cable (1 m) a great disappointment...

    • Written by from Saint Albert

    Well, I'm off to the Apple store to buy yet another lightning cord. This is ridiculous. I will definitely be switching from Apple after this. The disappointments and lack of quality of this item and the phone have me looking longingly at the Samsung 4 note. I can't give a no stars review, but I would Apple if I could!

    Broken already????

    • Written by from Federal Way

    Used the new lightning cable moderately for several months and noticed it stopped charging my Ipad. I had to twist and change the position of the cord near the charging base to get it to work. After 3 days of doing this, the cable is completly dead. Very dissappointed in the quality of the cable for the amount of money I spent for this device. IPad is otherwise an awesome product.

    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!

    I genuinely enjoy Apple products, in fact everything I own is made by the company. And I was ecstatic when they finally decided to change the connector from 30-pin to lightning. The connector itself is brilliant and causes me absolutely no trouble...the cable itself however is a different story. I bought my iPhone in December 2012 and to date I have bought THREE of these cables because every time the cable (not the connector) frays and ceases charging. I am sure not to use my iPhone while charging or contort it in any way but it doesn't seem to matter. I still have a really old 30-pin cable (the one with the buttons on the side) and I did everything with that cord and it still looks and works like new. 30-pin cable: concept was poor, quality was impeccable. Lightning cable: the exact opposite. As I've stated, I like Apple and the fact they value innovation. Yet it behooves me that they have time to design and manufacture Apple Watch but still haven't fixed iPhone's TERRIBLE battery-life (who wants to spend the day searching for outlets to charge), Maps (disgraceful app and I can't even delete it) and the ever notorious lightning cable. Apple, DO BETTER.
