    The durability of the cable...

    • Written by from Chennai

    This cable is nice. But please increase the length and durability of the cable. At the ends , it gets torn and that doesnt charge AT ALL!! Should it not be worth for the money we pay??
    Please consider this!

    Lightning is why I bad mouth my iPhone to my friends

    • Written by from McLean

    I love my iPhone 5s. IOS is the best mobile operating system and everything about the phone is top notch.

    Except.

    The lighting cable is the worst computer component I have encountered in a long time. The cables quit working after a few weeks, despite learning to treat them with kid gloves. I don't crunch, bend or twist them and they look great. They just stop working. And it's another $20 trip to the Apple store.

    It's infuriating because Apple was clearly trying to be clever by inserting a chip into the cable to discourage cheap alternative cable makers. The problem is that their own cheap cables don't last either.

    I would write something worse but the website bans naughty words.

    Terrible

    I've lost two cables in the last two months. It's terrible to loose original cables without any reason. They simply stops working.

    • Written by from Maitland

    5 months into owning my iPhone6 and the cable it's twisted/bent right under the charging port. Incredibly annoying considering this cord is only used in one place and hasn't been moved from that place since purchasing. Even more annoying is the constant "this accessory may not be supported" message that continuously pops up on my phone screen while the phone is charging. Hardly a quality product, especially considering it costs $20! Way to go, Apple. ��

    Worst charger cables I ever had.....

    • Written by from Thane

    I had changed the cable almost 5 times in the last one year and still none is giving satisfactory performance...
    Can Apple do something to take care of this issue on priority?
    I see lot of resentments among customers. Company must do something to improve the situation.
    Next time I would never ever try iPhone if this continues........................

    Not expected from Apple

    • Written by from Gig Harbor

    The apple lightening charging cables are prone to breakage. You can find your phone has no charge after leaving it on its factory charger and cable overnight. Like I did. No warning, nothing. Dead phone. No one could get a hold of me. The cable would not work. No apple store nearby. What do you do. Get a windows phone? The lightening cable won't work. No reason. On top of all this Apple has now placed software on our devices that rejects cables not made or authorized by them. Reportedly due to a fire from copy cat cable. So we all have to pay $19.99 for an inferior product. Not a good sign of things to come. The iWatch supposedly will replace your wallet. Well my wallet does not disappear due to a faulty cable. Definitely not expected from Apple and its superior products....(formerly !!)

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from San Pedro

    For the $20 I spent, I thought the cable would last at least six month. Not a chance. The cable disconnected from the charging point/prongs and left the charging prongs inside my iPhone portal. Really?!?

    Houston, we have a problem here.....

    • Written by from San Gabriel

    So today another one of these poorly made cables has failed. Just like the last one, this cable's plastic at the base of the Lightning end has shredded exposing the wires inside and now it only works intermittingly (at best) if it’s positioned a certain way. And even then, it goes out again eventually. This caused my phone to die overnight which made me oversleep when the alarm didn’t go off. Like I said before, this is not the first time this has happened. This actually marks the third cable to fail on me in the last year, all in similar circumstances. Obviously there’s a problem! You can look at the reviews here and multiple reports elsewhere and see that a trend has been forming. Question is, will Apple do anything about it? If they want us to continue spending a large amount of money on their high priced items and support only their accessories in conjunction, then these products, just like Apple, have to be accountable. I love Apple, always have. But please, fix this.

    Got my IPhone 6+ two weeks ago and now the lightning cable doesn't work. Hello Apple do you read these reviews. I can't believe a Company that prides itself on the customer experience is not reading these reviews and taking action.

    It's just awful

    • Written by from Urbana

    The lightning cable is the worst piece of technology I've ever dealt with. Seriously, this fragile cable is so bad I can't even argue how other brands' products are lightyears away from Apple just based on functionality. Ok, I get the idea of the cable being versatile and all that but omg. SJ must be turning in his grave with the lack of customer care this cable represents. I'm not the worst handler, I've never broke any cable of any other brand before. And I had a lot of phones in the last 11 years. I must have switched phones at least 14 times and it's the latest (which was supposed to be better) that was the only which I've ever had any problem with. I could buy a cheap phone with the money I spent on this chargers, seriously. This is not funny. It makes me ignore any other features Apple products have to provide, I just want out of this product just because of the hassle. I hate to say it but Apple's lightning USB cable is awful and Apple's products are awful by association.

    Worst product

    • Written by from Bangalore

    Apple thinks giving a sturdy charger is a issue of stylish prestige?? They think its very fancy to provide a delicate wired charger. Actually its so irritating and annoying that its worn out very frequently and have to replace it. If they are not going to address thia and deliver a good charger for people who aleeady own it am goin to switch from apple to android. I have been with apple for 6 years but this cheap thing annoys. I will also campaign my friends not to buy this one orally as well as in socia media

    Garbage!

    • Written by from Burton

    Dear Apple,
    Years ago when I purchased my very first Mac computer I fell in love! Since then we have had a great relationship, filled with continued love renewed every few years or so with a new necessity. My old Mac is now used for my kids, playing some old computer games and for typing practice. At 18 years old, it's a dinosaur, but it WORKS! My MacBook also works still although it needs to be plugged in now as the battery cannot hold a charge anymore. My iMac also still works, now 11 years old...has trouble with online stuff though as its a bit too outdated. My iPad2 is going strong, iPhone 3g just recently gave up, but that was after 5 years, dropped into the lake fishing (like 3 minutes completely submerged, no cover, cracked screen...), and countless spills. Now I have my iPhone 5S, gold:) I love it! What I don't like, it that it's cheaper quality than my old 3G, the cords have broken 5 times now, and the battery lasts for only half a day. It's 3 months old. I am finding myself drawn over the line to Samsung, as I have had to borrow my husbands Galaxy more than a few times, because my beloved failed me and died. I love you Apple, but my love is not unconditional. Your products are always industry leaders, driving the rest, why are you starting to fail me? Why begin making subpar products, when you have had only the BEST up until now? I have been using you since I was 8 years old, I am 36 now. Don't make me suffer through windows! Please, get back to the basics, quality, durability, functionality, superiority! Apple used to be the best, I recomended you for the last 20 years, helped facilitate the purchase of 500 iPads at my children's school, and use you exclusively at home. But as my newer products Appletv, ipad, and iPhones continue to have issues like battery durability, (iPhone4 was particularly awful) cables breaking constantly, and overall problematic systems requiring factory resets, AppleCare visits, and replacements I am becoming a little bitter. After my barely 2 year old iPhone 4 died due to faulty charging port, I put my faith in Apple and bought the 5s, now we are once again having problems. Not good! I may walk away after this, into the android world. I know they lag but at least they stay on, the Chargers don't break, and they are not completly outdated and locked out of App Store after 2 years. Apple this is a desperate plea, please get your s**t together! Don't force me to leave you!

    Not a Long-Lasting Product

    • Written by from Rochester

    I an very disappointed and discouraged with Apple's cables, especially the Lightning to USB Cable. I have been using them for a long time and have spent hundreds of dollars replacing them after a couple of months-and with normal use. I don't even take them anywhere and am quite careful with them. They are cheaply made; the plug-in ends either burn out or twist and break no matter how carefully one treats them, and they are expensive considering the short time they last. Apple wants the owners of their devices to also use their accessories but continually change them and never improve on the quality. T'aint fair fellas. Cheating your users isn't good business.

    I've been through two of these in less than a year with my iPhone 5. Normal use—the thing doesn't even leave my desk. What's up with this thing? Apple should fix and send all iPhone owners a new one for free. Terrible. Would give zero stars if I could.
