    Charger cord

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I am very displeased about the charger cords. I've had my phone almost 10 months now and I have got through 2 charger cords. I never had this problem with my iPod charger. Either Apple fixes it, or I'll go back to being an Android user. Because I will not pay another $19.00 for a lousy charger to break in under a few months.

    come on apple, you can do better than this. the sheath of the cord is shredded, making charging impossible unless i just so happen to angle the plug-in just right after cursing at it for 15 mins. you guys need to fix this

    Very disappointed.

    • Written by from calera

    I have recently (in the last few months) updated my iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5. I have one charger next to my bed and it has not moved since I bought the phone. Now, all of the sudden, the charger just stopped charging. I still have chargers from the first iPhone and various iPods that work perfectly fine. It is sad that Apple, who is supposed to be the best, would make such a product that breaks so easily. Now that I have provided most of my family with their own iPhone 5, I am going to hate telling them they will have to spend more money just to provide another charger for their phone. Very disappointed in Apple and their lack of ability to continue to make their products last. If you want to be the best, do not make a product that does not last more than 3 months.

    Very frustrating- I give it no stars

    • Written by from Beulah

    My first cable that I got with my new iphone broke at the base of the plug into the phone connection within a few weeks of normal use. I thought maybe I had gotten a faulty one but after the new one that I thought was expensive and strong did the same thing a few hours ago I am not very happy and feel that apple needs to improve their product and send me a couple new cables until they resolve the issue.

    Apple needs to fix this!

    • Written by from Dillsburg

    I am just over 1 year with my iphone 5 and within the last 2 weeks I have had 3 out of 4 cables stop working. They are all splitting under the head like everyone else's. I leave it plugged into my bedroom at the nightstand and it lays flat every night. Not sure what else I could do to make it work. Very irritated that I have to buy yet another.

    Wait!!!

    So looking over the reviews, others have had the same problem I had and at first I too thought the problem was with my chord. On my iPhone5 I had three to four lightning chords and one of them was sort of scratched up. Thought it was my fault, so I just kept using the other chords. My iPhone5 WOULD NOT charge and I previously had to wrap my chord around or kept it in a certain way/direction for my phone to finally charge. Turns out that it WASN'T the chord at all, BUT the actual phone itself. Luckily my iPhone5 was still under warranty, so anyone who has this problem and is still under warranty, just go take it in and they'll give you a new phone!

    In conclusion, my lightning chords all work with my new iPhone5 (including the scratched up one) and my iPad2 w/ retina display. I am giving it a 4/5 though because it was kind of easy to scratch the chord, but other than that, it works like a charm!

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from Charleston

    These cords break incredibly fast. My charger still works for my Ipod video that I bought over 6 years ago. This product is horrible and needs to be fixed ASAP. I noticed that the rubber on this cord is cheaper and more flimsy than the old 30 pin cords. Please fix this failure Apple before you lose me to Samsung.

    I think the charger is good because it is reversible but also its a pain because you can't use the same charger of some of your other devices. It also breaks down easily especially the cord.

    Cable is worthless

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I've had to replace this cable 3 times now. It just stops working. Very upsetting, and whats worse is its not like this is something that you can do without. You need the cable to be able to charge your phone. Apple needs to come up with something that is more durable and lasts. I've also had similiar problems with my cable for my IPHONE 4S, same issue. So in my opinon it is the quality of the product. It absolutely stinks!

    Just read all of the other terrible reviews. Cable came apart right where it attaches to the lightening plug. Total garbage. Wish I could give it 0 stars.

    • Written by from El Dorado Hills

    Wow, never thought I would find a rotten apple in the tree *pun intended*!!!! I bought this phone in November and the charger broke in June!!! It said it could not support accessory!!!!! I tried everything to get it to work, but nothing helped. The same thing happened to my friend! She had to buy a new one. I hope apple can fix it in the next generation of products. Very disappointing.

    Horrible Disappointment

    • Written by from Columbus

    Very disappointed in the cord. Never any issues with the phone. I have had the 5 for a year and gone through 4 cords. Apple better do something before it loses out to superior other brands. I would personally never buy this phone or cord type again.

    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.

    Serious Disappointment

    • Written by from Tampa

    Although previous chargers made by Apple have served over long periods of time, these new versions have only lasted, to their longest extent, (I'm now on my 3rd charger) about 4 months. Apple seriously needs to address this problem soon, or it will just not be worth my money to keep buying these new phones.

    Short Lifespan

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I've owned this cable for less than a year, and it is no longer working properly. The wiring inside has become damaged/frayed despite proper care. Definitely the worst Apple product I have ever owned.
