    Worst Cable Ever I got

    • Written by from Memphis

    I should not rate this one even one star.I have tried two these. One is completely damaged and not working at all. No physical damage at all. The other one which i borrowed from my sister just start tearing down near charging pin. Its so frustrating and when I went to store they said its out of warranty and I have to buy a new one which is almost $20. Can you make a better cable that can last little bit longer. I thought Apple Makes better and long lasting Product and not piece of trash. You are loosing my Loyalty.

    So disappointed in this cord....

    • Written by from West Deptford

    Huge fan of Apple products so I am totally bewildered that this product would be so defective. We have two ipod touches in the family and both cords have stopped working. Never experienced this before. First one just stopped charging for no reason, the second shorted, shredded the cord and shocked my daughter. It's a disgrace if Apple doesn't redesign this product and allow for free exchanges.

    The only Apple cable that I've had a problem with

    • Written by from Mississauga

    My family has a countless number of Apple devices, and I've had the iPhone 5 for over a year now. The new cable was working perfectly fine throughout the year, however around November 2013 I noticed that the top of the cable was starting to tear. I tried to do my best and tape it together, however the plastic material that encases the inner wires continued to disintegrate. Hope Apple steps up the quality and length of their cables! My family has spent thousands of dollars on Apple products and we would appreciate basic things like charging cables not to break down on us!

    Garbage

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I have had three of these break on me in just over a year. They are blatantly designed to fail. For $20 it should last me at least a year. I've had to apply shrink tubing to make these last ... (I don't buy Apple brand cables anymore)

    Disappointment

    • Written by from Gallipolis

    I've had the charger that comes with my phone MAYBE two months, and it's already not working. Obviously this is a common complaint. Definitely investing in a braided/more sturdy charger. Not even worth dealing with these flimsy excuses again.

    If I could put ZERO STARS i would.

    • Written by from East Meadow

    This is literally the worst possible product I have ever had the unfortunate displeasure to own. Not only have I spent well over 100 dollars on replacing this stupid thing but it never seems to work no matter how many I get! If they could make a more reliable piece of NECESSARY equipment it would probably make me reconsider getting a samsung phone but because I am so tired with the endless issues especially coming from chargers- I'm done with apple.

    Cheap Design

    • Written by from winchester

    Horribly designed. Mine broke within 6 months of buying my iPhone 5. Everyone I know who has the iPhone 5 has had their charger break within this time period of regular use. This is ridiculous.

    Third cord already!

    • Written by from Clarendon Hills

    This is the third cord I've ordered for my daughter's iphone 5 in six months. She was convinced that something was wrong with her phone that it was breaking all of the cords, but now that I see the other reviews, I see that we are not alone. With all of this negative feedback, I can't believe that Apple hasn't tackled this and fixed it yet. I think we should all get free cords.

    Poor quality charger

    • Written by from Rolling Meadows

    Like most others reviewing this product, the sheathing on my cord broke open right below the lightning adapter, exposing the wires. It is only used in my car and therefore has not had much wear and tear at all. It happened randomly and all of the sudden, I smelled a strong burning smell in my car and this is a very dangerous issue. Now I am forced to buy another charger for 20.00, knowing that it is probably going to happen again. For the amount of money apple charges for their products, they should be high quality, and more importantly not pose safety hazards.

    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.

    • Written by from Seattle

    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.

    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.

    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.

    • Written by from Kenmore

    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.

    Inferior product for a brand that boast "superior" quality.

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    There is nothing that I could possibly write that hasn't been already said, therefore I will just add to the justified complaints of a product that is poorly made. These charging cables for the Iphone 5 are simply laughable and despicable. This is coming from someone who takes care of his possessions. I have multiple charging cables, so the fact that I have to replace them within a year of each other is infuriating and annoying. Apple, Do better. You can create cutting-edge technology, but can't find a way to make a more durable charging cable? It makes the company look like a complete joke. I'm sick and tired of it. DO BETTER.
