    So annoying

    • Written by from Mississauga

    Apple must come up with a better quality cord. I have been through countless cords now and its always the same problem. The cable disconnects from both the usb end or the lightening end. The wires are too flimsy. My partner is with samsung.... this is not an issue for him or any of my other friends who are not apple users, so why apple? Why continue to let this happen? just make a better product, or keep finding ways to take money out of your customers pockets. Apple customers pride themselves in choosing the best company therefore we expect to have the best quality. Do something and fast!

    Apple charger cable not worth the money

    • Written by from Silver spring

    I have had my iPhone 5s for about a year now. During this time I have gone through 4 of these cables! No matter how I lay the cable down it seems to tangle and become loose thus causing my phone not to charge. I believe Apple should take a look at an alternative material to use when producing these cables as its clear to me they are flimsy. I hope they read reviews, because charging $30.00 for a cable (No adapter included) which breaks or malfunctions after a handful of uses is unreasonable. Please fix the issue

    I was nervous with the reviews... but I love it!

    • Written by from Rutland

    I saw how many people were having terrible luck with this product, but I took a chance with it. I have had it for over two months now, and I haven't had a single problem. It charges my iphone very quickly, doesn't overheat, no problems with connectivity. It was a great purchase!

    great cord

    • Written by from Shreveport

    I bought this cord to have a longer lightning cord and am very pleased with it. I see all kinds of reviews about iPhone cords not lasting long. I have had every iPhone from the 3 to the present 5s and have never had a cord fail. Yes I am careful with them. I only pull on the plug, not on the cord and I don't kink them, i roll them up. Granted, I do not have to carry one with me to work as my battery keeps a charge through work hours so mine are only transported when I travel, but even if one does have to carry one with them every day, how in the world does it stop working in a month? Just use common sense and be a bit careful. Even my husband (who is a bit careless with his phone and cord) has never had one fail.

    The cord gets bent very easily at the top. If you treat it well and don't bend it, it still doesn't work. I have bought 6 chargers and I haven't even had my iPhone 5s for a year yet. I've tried different brands of cords and it says not accessible for your phone. The cord just doesn't work and it needs to be fixed this is getting ridiculous.

    Not worth it at all

    • Written by from Chatham

    I am now buying my 5th cable. They continue to fray and break down without there being any significant use. I am so disappointed but what is my alternative?

    I've gone through 5 cables and the sixth is on its way out. I love the Apple brand as I have everything Apple, with the exception of a TV that they have yet to produce. They better fix this with the iPhone 6 coming out soon. If not, they will lose a loyal customer to Android (ughh)...

    These chargers are one of the worst chargers in the world. I don't bend or play with them while my phone is charging and they brake. They are the most flimsiest and thinnest chargers in the world and most easy to brake. If Apple wants to carry on making money and keeping customers happy the they really need to think of ways to make the charger stronger and less harder to brake and bend. It's ridiculous. Get it sorted

    I'm very upset

    • Written by from McKinney

    I have purchased 2 iPad airs, an iPad mini, and 2 5s phone sthis year replacing all of our old previous gen gear. Also bought another 27" iMac (3500.00 model) and another Thunderbolt Display.

    ALL of our cords on the iPads and phones have gone belly up. I travel extensively and HAVE TO HAVE my gear working and charged. Going to my local apple store today with a handful of bad cords. They better replace them AND give me spares.

    Works as advertised, so far has lasted 1.5 years

    • Written by from West Linn

    I don't know what other people are saying about it breaking every month or so, but I've had mine since I got my iPhone 5 1 and a half years ago. The original cable still works perfectly, and is a great product. Thank you Apple!

    BIG Disappointment

    • Written by from Stockton

    I purchased this USB cable thinking it would last a lot longer than the one that
    came with the Ipad. What a huge disappointment. I haven't used it for a year (generous estimate)
    and it has already quit working. So now I am back to using the supplied USB cable.
    I am wondering if I received a defective one, or if this is a problem that others are experiencing?

    I will look for my receipt and see if it came with a warranty. Seems like Apple should stand behind their

    Still working 1 year later

    • Written by from Fremont

    I bought the 2 m version over a year ago and it is working fine without any sign of wear. However, a 1 m one (that came with my iPhone 6) wore through at the lightning connector end just as so many reviewers have communicated. But all my kids (4) and my wife have had lightning connectors for the past 0.5-1.5 years and it is just one of the six that wore through. With that said, one is too many. Apple makes quality products, but it doesn't take much for otherwise satisfied customers to become disgruntled. Come on Apple!

    Good cord, should of been packed with iPad Air

    • Written by from Brampton

    iPad Air comes with a 1 m cord. That is just too short for practical use. When at a desk, I rather have my iPad plugged in than have it run off its battery. The iPad Air won't charge when connected to a USB port on a Mac and if plugged into a wall outlet, the cord is just too short to reach over the back of a desk. My 1 m cord had to come up the front of my desk and when not in use, the cord would lay on the floor. While on the floor like that, it ended up being accidentally rolled over with my desk chair a few times. Cord got damaged because of that (still works) but I ordered the 2 m cord.

    This cord is so much better and really, should of been included with the iPad instead of the 1 m cord. Now the cord reaches the power outlet, up and over the back of my desk and stays safe on top and off the floor.

    Are you kidding me?!?

    • Written by from Los Alamitos

    Freaking ridiculous , no one should ever have to pay thirty dollars for a charger. ESPECIALLY one with this horrible quality , Apple has been having so many problems it's really making me want to switch over to android . I can go anywhere and buy a 7 dollar charger but now since the update my phone is not allowing me to use it . $30 is a freaking joke.
