    Garbage.

    • Written by from Hamden

    This cable is junk. I have never had a cable die on me like the ones made for the iPhone 5. I bought generic ones on eBay a while back, just to have extras. I thought they all died because they were cheap but then my original one started doing the same thing. I've only had it just over a year. Apple needs to figure this one out ASAP. $20 a pop is not cool.

    Disappointed and expensive!

    • Written by

    I have an iPhone 5 and my son has an iPhone 4 and I must say we both LOVE our phones except for the garbage cords they come with!!! In the past six months my son has gone through 3 cords and I have gone through 4 myself. To be on the 4th and 5th cords simply because they are cheaply made is absolutely ridiculous! To realize we are close to $200 in just cords is awful. I think it really stinks that brand new these phones are $500+, yet they can't make a cord that lasts the life of the phone. Is it really necessary to have to repeatedly buy the same accessory over the WHOLE life span of your phones?? I suppose it is of we want to charge our phones!

    Annoyed.

    • Written by from Norfolk

    My iPhone 5 charger stopped working within a month of purchasing the phone. I received a new one under warranty but now the replacement has stopped working as well. If I could give this product 0 stars, I would. I am very disappointed in the design and subsequent failure of the product. I had my iPhone 4 for years and never had to replace the charger. Something needs to be done about this serious lack of quality control.

    Disposable

    • Written by from Londrina

    Is very expensive for it's durability
    The cable is simply disposable.
    You will use it for no longer then 4 or 5 months and you are done... It just stops working.

    Needs work

    • Written by from Justice

    This charger cable lasted for the past eight months without a problem until today when completely stopped working. This cord is very fragile and I suggest keeping the cord as straight as possible and don't twist it as well or else you'll have to buy a new one like I do.

    Quit working

    • Written by from Linden

    Had my iPhone 4 charger for over 3 years and still use it to charge my iPod. Have had the iPhone 5 now for almost a year and its already shorted out. My three roommates have also had 3 different apple brand chargers that shorted out.

    Confused by other reviews.

    • Written by from McConnelsville

    I have had this cable for over a year and have not had any problems with it. I actually enjoy its ability to be reversible when plugging it in, no more fighting in the dark to have it the right way around. What I am confused about is why these reviewers keep buying the cable when it comes with a warranty. Apple will simply replace the cable if it breaks due to normal wear and tear before the warranty is up.

    Bad quality

    I bought this Iphone not that long ago and this cable is not working anymore. I take care of it...so as other reviewers mentioned it is due to bad quality.

    New charger every few months

    • Written by from Sumter

    Never seen a product so cheap and unreliable come from apply besides this charger. Buying a new charger every few months is insane. This needs to be fixed now. No charge, no working product.

    Poor Apple product...

    • Written by from Bisbee

    I got my iPhone 5 last September and already my cord doesn't work. At first I thought I had just been more rough with it than usual and that's why it had quite working, but after reading all of the other reviews, I realized that it was in fact just the cord. I got my iPod classic six years ago and the iPod quite working (last year) before the 30-pin adapter did (and it's still of use), so I'm really surprised that Apple made such a flimsy product, especially in comparison to the 30-pin adapter, which never gave me any problems. I'm buying the cord again because I have to if I want to be able to use my phone, but I really hope Apple is working on making a more durable cord so we're not having to buy them every 5 months, regardless of how much money it's making them.

    STUPID!

    • Written by from Oslo

    I got my iPod touch 5th gen. 32GB as a gift, it's not really a gift if the stupid charger breaks the 3rd month of use! When I charge it, it goes like this (Charging-3sec.-NotCharging-3sec.-Charging-3sec.-NotCharging) It is so irritating! I want a new DURABLE cable when I get a new one with my warranty! Shame on you Apple! You can do better!! My brother has had a 30pin connector for two years and it works perfectly!!

    Terrible Quality

    • Written by from Waterloo

    I have had so many cables stop working on me, and at a minimum of $21 each they are not cheap to replace. Come on Apple, we expect higher quality from you!

    The 2 meter is not as flimsy

    • Written by from Germantown

    I've been though a few of these .5 m, but the 2 meter cable has a thicker cord and appears to be holding up a lot better. I will be buying the 2 meter if another .5 meter one breaks.

    PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!

    • Written by from MEXICO

    POOR QUALITY MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION ON THE CABLE, VERY WELL FINISHED ON THE ENDS.

    ALL THE LIGHTNING CABLES ARE SUPER-EXTRA EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT THEY ARE BUT I WOULDN'T MIND TO PAY THE STABLISHED PRICE OF THEM IF THEY WERE BETTER QUALITY MADE. THEY HAVE THE WORST CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS AND THAY DON'T LAST EVENA YEAR DESPITE YOU TAKE SUPER CARE OF THEM.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED...

    The Worst

    • Written by from dpo

    Between three new iPods, an iPad and an iPhone C, we have gone through at least five of these cables. The latest failure was with a cord less than two months old. No matter how much care is taken in using and storing these cords, the insulation tears and the wires short out. This is by far the poorest quality Apple product I have had in more than 20 years as an Apple customer.

    One word - TERRIBLE!!!

    • Written by from reedsville

    My family all went and bought 4 phones together. Which means we got 4 chargers. Even 2 months has not passed when mine gave out. When the 4th month mark hit another one gave out. The other 2 were a little better. At 7 months both were falling apart and had to be taped together by duct tape! Although, duct tape fixes everything, It did not take long for the 3rd charger to give out. We only have 1 charger left, and if I could only upload a picture: you would not recognize it!!! This is the reason why I have to buy another brand new charger in hopes it will last me longer than the others! Also, everyone who used these chargers where very careful and gentle!! Now I have to pay 80 dollars for only 4 chargers!!!
