    Lightning Cable for I pad

    This is my third purchase of this cord it keeps breaking at the same place on every chord. It does not charge my I pad anymore. $20.00 is too much to pay for a defective charge chord. I will not purchase another from this site.

    Good

    I've had my iPhone 5s for around 2 years now. The original cable that came with it was working fine without any issues. My phone started having issues and Apple gave me a new cable and it turned out the problem was with the phone. The new cable that Apple gave me for over 18 months now and it worked perfectly fine without any issues. The end that connects to the phone started to break. Although the cable can be a little bit short, its quality I can say is great as Apple is known for making high quality products. When you buy a cable, I would not suggest buying third party cables because they could cause issues with the phone's battery. It is always better to buy original accessories when it comes to dealing with the electricity of a device.

    Hate the Lightning Cable/Connector

    I absolutely hate the lightning cable and connector. I wasn't going to buy the iPhone 6 after my bad experiences with the iPhone 5, cables breaking, wearing out, bad connections, constant cleaning, stuff getting stuck in the port, etc but I did and have regretted it ever since. Now I hear that you're going to have to use the lightning port to listen to music because they are getting rid of the headphone jack. No way, I'll never have another iPhone. I hate it using it to charge, I can't imagine using to listen to music or how quickly with as much music as I listen to that I'll wear out the connectors. And no, I'm not interested in bluetooth headsets, I have enough stuff to charge all the time without my headphones being another item. They seriously need to ditch the lightning connector and either use the original 30 pin connector (thicker phone could be good, more battery life which everyone wants) or use something like the mag chargers from the MacBook's, that would be awesome. But the lightning connector = terrible. Even after several years.

    I see so many bad reviews on here saying the cables don't last long, but I've had mine for about 2 years now and it still works perfectly fine, even though I've abused it a lot.

    Muppet

    If you don't look after you're stuff it will break it's simple, for anyone that dosnt know what that means it means pulling the cable out of your apple device with the plastic casing not the wire. I think it's perfect ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    I Hate It!!!

    #1. The cable is too short #2. Covering at each end of the charger breaks.
    I consider myself a lite user. Every other charger I've had for other phones (Motorola, Samsung) have outlasted the phone and still looks good. This is my second charger and my phone will be 2 years old in Feb 2017. I hope Apple is paying attention to the ratings on their charger. Poor customer service if they're not.

    How is this not on the news?

    So many bad reviews, so many unhappy customers? I have bought both the aftermarket and the official Apple cables and inevitably they all fail. Whether it just stops charging or the lightning end where it plugs in the phone gets all twisted up and the wire becomes exposed, causing who knows what kind of hazards. This is not even on cords that are being transported. I plug in when I need a charge and unplug when it's done. It literally sits at my desk all day under no stress. What is going on Apple, is anyone there? Probably why I've only purchased an iPod and will never purchase another Apple product again if this is the kind of quality that I am to expect.

    Doesn't last long

    Anyone who's had an apple charging cable knows it won't last very long. You pay 600 pounds for a phone that comes with a poorly made charger that won't last a year, (sometimes not even 6 months), no matter how careful you are. A decent charger is really the very least you could do, Apple. Shame on you.

    Wear out too soon

    These wear so quickly that they are useless. Yet, although other brands say "Apple Certified", every time there is an iOS update I get warnings about non Apple accessories and they soon fail. If Apple doesn't want other cables used why do they allow the Apple name to be used at Amazon, etc.? If Apple is going to force it's customers to use their cables, why won't they make them durable?

    These charging cables are garbage

    Seriously Apple, you should be ashamed! Have had our 6s phones for only 9 months, and we are already replacing two out of four cables. And $19 each for new ones!! Total BS. Like I said, Apple, you should be ashamed. I doubt will, but you should be.

    awful. € 25 for 1/2m !!!!

    Seriously apple, if your customers are to spend between € 300 and €1.2500 on a new Phone, tablet or phablet, the least you can do is supply them with a decent cable.

    The things need to be charged twice a day...so a little flexibility would go a long way! they all fail after 6 months.

    Go through 15 of them per year. Absolute junk.

    I keep one at home, one in the car and one at the office. They last a month or two before they lose their ability to charge the device and you have to pay too much for an authorized cable. I am disgusted.

    Cannot believe that Apple is still building this garbage

    After all of these years, is it too difficult for a company like Apple to make a quality charge cable?

    I've got mini and micro USB cables that have been functioning for years, going through much more abuse than my babied iOS cables. The old 30-pin cables were bad, but the newer Lightning ones are even worse. I have not had one survive more than six months, some of them went bad in a matter of weeks.

    Perhaps I'm not as careful as I should be when removing thr cable. This should not be an issue. No other that I own has such strict requirements on where I hold it when I unplug a device.

    Even third party cables fail with the slightest provocation, so I'm forced to believe that it is based on a bad design. So much for "It Just Works". Don't buy this cable, buy a $5 cable at the gas station. It'll last just as long, at a quarter of this price.

    Awful- Breaks easily

    I truly hate these cords; they break after about a year and I have buy a new one. Mine is now broken and the wires are exposed. For such an expensive phone the accessories are awful! The same thing with the headphones, I usually have to buy a second cable and headphone within two years of owning my phones!

  • 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Very poor

    Why on earth can't Apple produce better quality cables? I've purchased several in recent months for 3 Apple devices and they invariably last but a few weeks. After years of loyal (and expensive) Apple device usage... Starting to look elsewhere.

    Needs reinforcement on the wire's covering

    I was surprised by all the negative reviews here. And I, myself would not write a review unless there was something which needs improving, so 3 stars because it does the job; but there's room to improve. The point at which the cable enters in the narrow end (not USB) is fraying and I am needing to reinforce it with electrical tape. Seems like the gripper part on this end could be a little longer and the point at which it changes from adapter to cable could be beefed up a bit.
