    Awful quality.. especially if you consider the high price

    • Written by from Heiloo

    I have bought two cables and both are really struggling at the moment. They charge only under one specific angle. So i have to buy two new cables, which cost a fortune! This isn't the quality i am used to from apple.

    Horrible, bad quality and suspicious

    • Written by from london

    I've already have 4 of those for both my iphone and ipad. It feels that they ARE made to break easily so Apple wil cash in with an unnecessary purchase. How bad come a good product like iphone and ipad is not matched with a "Nokia" like Cable or even like the very robus Blackberry cable? The reason is obvious, so it becomes a discardable product that you will pay 15 pounds every 3 months.

    Rubbish!

    WORST CABLE

    • Written by from MILWAUKEE

    I have been a faithful apple user since 2006 and have owned multiple apple products; macbooks, ipads, ipods, and iphones. I have had the Iphone since the first generation came out and never once had to replace any cable. I have had my 5S for 8 months now, and just purchased my fifth cable cord. I have bought all of my accessories from Apple or from AT&T (my provider) and the quality in this product is absolutely disappointing. I hope that Apple takes a look at all of the negative reviews on here and does something about it. I will be forced to buy another phone/tablet in the future if I have to continue to replace the cords. APPLE please do something about this horrible product, this is way beneath your standards.

    Cables dont last long

    • Written by from Coventry

    Excellent cables to charge your iPhone properly and fasting than the fake ones however after a few months they tend to start coming apart by the connection into the phone. But from talking to others apple chargers have always had this down side.

    We're buying a new cable every 4-6 weeks

    • Written by from Davie

    The failure rate of the charging cables almost criminal.
    Speaking of iPad 5.

    I strongly recommend taking a good look at what the competition
    Has to offer with regards to tablets that won't require the upkeep
    That the iPad needs.
    I find Apple to be more "sizzle" than substance.

    5s charger

    • Written by from Lowell

    6 months with the phone already bought 7 chargers for it . They all broke at the same place. The last one I bought I decided to put electric tape around it and still broke after 2 weeks. Very disappointed with this .

    Simply awful

    • Written by from New Berlin

    I have bought countless replacements for these little chargers and I'm sick of it. They break constantly and it's not even like I'm misusing the product or not taking proper care of it. Pathetic for a quality brand like apple to produce something like this. The old chargers worked fine and I would rather have one that works than one that's smaller and breaks all the time. Don't fix what isn't broken. I'm expecting a free replacement.

    Poor quality

    • Written by from Leicester

    I prefer the design over the old one as it's much smaller, and reversible too. But the problem is the build quality. I've looked after my cable well, but the outer sheath has come away near the connector. I've put some tape around it but I think it will stop working soon. I got the cable with my iPhone 5 so it's less than 2 years old. My friend's cable stopped working last week and hers is just 15 months old. I talked to the manager at Apple Ginza but he would not replace it. Just told me I should buy a new one - at 2000yen! If it's so expensive, the least Apple can do is ensure it's quality. Very disappointing!

    Very durable if you treat it GENTLY!!!

    • Written by from Chandler

    This new cable is much much better than the old 30-pin cable. It is very nice that it is reversible. A lot of people are saying that the cord near the lightning plug eventually shrivels up and stops working. Well, mine has been working perfectly ever since I got it with my iPhone 5S in May. As long as you treat your cord gently, it won't break!

    So easily broken...

    • Written by from Brownstown

    We have used three chargers so far and they all broke within the first 2-3 months; the third broke within 2 weeks! They are either very fragile or very poorly made. And with the amount of money they cost, they really should be upgraded. There is no point to a phone if it isn't charged. I would give this zero stars if I could.

    Within weeks you are in the apple store paying £15 again !

    • Written by from Liverpool

    Had my iphone 5 since it first came out , i cant count the amount of money i have had to pay for a new wire. £15 each time . Each time i have been careful to make sure the wire does not twist or comes loose . DISGRACEFUL ! I am student and depend on my phone so i have no choice but to buy a new wire . There is numerous cheap websites ' EBAY & AMAZON ' where people sell cables for as little as as £5 but they last a couple of days . There is no way of solving this problem unless apple decide to make a change and fix the problem .

    Very poor quality leads

    • Written by from Kingston

    These Apple lightning leads are of extremely weak design I have had two genuine ones and both lasted just a few months before the cable started to come away from the plug at the item charging end in my case the ipad. They are not cheap £15.00 a go. I have tried buying them on ebay but the non apple ones last for even less time. Come on Apple design a good solid lead because the current ones are unfit for purpose.

    Cable is poorly made

    • Written by from maspeth

    Phone is great, cable is not. I've been an apple user for over 6 years. I have 6 kids and multiple, 30 pin apple products, all without problems. Apple switches to the Lightning plug and I had to switch all the cables as we upgraded phones, IPads and Ipods.

    The problem is the Lightning Cable does not hold up at all with average use. My kids range in age of 22 to 16 and all of them have replace cables and I try to rationalize that they are younger and usually more abusive to the cable.

    I'm a 52 year old man with five lightning cables and three have failed in 10 months or less.

    Its a poor design and Apple needs to own up to it.

    I have had 2 of these cables since the iPhone 5 first came out. I keep one at home and one in my car adapter. I have had no problems. I love how fast they charge my phone and transfer data. I just bought a two meter one for work. I have no idea what the fuss is. Trollers?

    • Written by from Modesto

    I am on my third lightning to usb cable. I have had the one I am using currently for about 3 months and it is already starting to break. I am looking how to file a warranty claim but they do not make it easy for you to or maybe not even possible. Definitely a waste of money to buy the apple lightning cables.
