      Works.... Then doesn't

      I got the iPhone 5 for a couple of week thes original cable worked perfectly until the bit of wire towards the lightning adapter starts to crimple, eventually i I got the iPhone 5 for a couple of week thes original cable worked perfectly until the bit of wire towards the lightning adapter starts to crimple, eventually it just doesn't work after more weeks off the cable working and not working constantly vibrating when trying to sleep, can drive someone mad!, I then bought a new offical cable and yet it worked perfect and the same problem occurred, I am sick of paying £15 each time the cable fails to get it replaced!

      Useless

      I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose in the top of the cable (wher I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose in the top of the cable (where it enters the device), then it will only work when it is pulled or pushed into certain directions, until eventually it will not work at all. Im sick of wasting money on these cablels. A new cable must be brought out.

      £45. Yes. £45! I've bought THREE Apple cables in the past 4 months! I'm absolutely disgusted with the quality of them. They just seemed to break! I'm always, al £45. Yes. £45! I've bought THREE Apple cables in the past 4 months! I'm absolutely disgusted with the quality of them. They just seemed to break! I'm always, always very careful with things I buy and these cables are just expensive and nasty. I'm just utterly disgusted with Apple. Horrible quality and far too expensive! Get it fixed!!!!

      3 cables in 4 years seems like a record

      I've survived with 3 of these over my 3 phones that use it. The first one failed and the phone stopped charging so in the bin it went. The second one which was I've survived with 3 of these over my 3 phones that use it. The first one failed and the phone stopped charging so in the bin it went. The second one which was chewed on by my dog actually outlived the third one when I returned to it after the third failed and decided to tape it back together. It really is sad that one that was nearly destroyed by an animal outlives two perfectly good ones; horrid quality... Make them better or just move to Micro-USB like everyone else... Despite your cool "features" that come with the cords they have shoddy workmanship and fail to provide.

      As expected

      An 8 pin connector, OEM, not a knock off obviously. Inside is a braided metal shield around the wiring (a red, a green, white, and bare) and silicone injected An 8 pin connector, OEM, not a knock off obviously. Inside is a braided metal shield around the wiring (a red, a green, white, and bare) and silicone injected near the connector for stress relief. A lot of people break these because they pull the connector out by yanking on the cord. Then, they complain about the product because it broke as a result. If you notice the cord looks scrunched up just below the connector, it's because you've damaged the cable removing it that way. Remove it while holding the connector itself, not the cord (hard plastic bit that goes into the phone. Can't miss it). The yellow staining on the cord is NOT electrical burnout or an issue with the cord. It's from your fingers, oils and grease that gets left behind when you pull on the cord instead of the connector.

      Terrible.

The contacts eventually either corrode or burn out, even if they are not exposed to moisture. Over the last 4 years and two iPhones, I have had to replace the lightning cable about every 2 to 4 months. Seriously. Sometimes this was under warranty, sometimes not. I have tried some third party lightning cables that fared no better, but were cheaper. So Apple overcharges us for a cable that is inherently defective to begin with. I cannot express just how unhappy I am with this situation. Having an exposed edge connector is a bad design, but it seems like the connectors can go bad just from charging. I stuck a third party lightning cable into my phone and the contacts burned out within a day. Yet the Apple brand lightning cables burn out eventually as well. Looking at the Apple forums it appears that a great many other people have had the same problem. The iPhone 7 coming out this fall will use lightning port to connect the headphones. What a disaster this will be.
