    No issues - always works.

    I've been using these cables for years and years and I have never, never needed to buy any other apart from the one included in the package. Always good!

    life expentacy only depends upon your care

    i've had my usb cable for a couple of years now and it's still in good condition. i can't lie about its fragility though. i just saved myself lots of dollars for taking good care of it.

    Vastly better than other competitors

    I saw so many bad reviews that I felt compelled to write my own review. I have had an iPhone since the first iPhone. I skipped 1 or 2 of the S versions of the phone but for the most part I try to stay with the newest model. The cable has always worked great for me. I currently have 3 lighting cables from previous phones. They all work great. My oldest one is starting to come apart but it's around 3 years old. I have never had a problem with charging slow or plugging in the cable to my phone.

    Just so you get a feel for how I use my cables. I like to have multiple cables for charging throughout my house and in my car. I'm constantly on the phone for hours at a time so I need to essentially be connected to a charger throughout the day. I've used many other brands of cables and they are not even close to the quality of Apple's cable. No other cable has lasted more than 1 year without falling apart. I'm at the point where I exclusively by Apple cables. They are not perfect but much better than any of the competitors.

    As far as the length is concerned, I think it's perfect. Any longer and it would be a mess. However, Apple does offer longer cables.

    Super fast delivery

    Ordered a new charger/cable yesterday afternoon and it arrived before 12pm today! I left my old charger in hospital recently- that one was over 2 years old and I've never had an issue with it. My partners iPad charger is now 4 years old and again no issues...

    great quality

    the first charger i got when i bought my phone lasted me a little over a year and thats probably because i didnt use my phone while it was charging. had to buy a new one because my pup got ahold of it.. had to buy a new one and its lasted me almost 9 months so far you can put your phone down for the 30 minutes it needs to charge. it will increase the life expectancy of your cord if you just leave your phone alone. it will last longer than three months i guarantee it

    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.

    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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Read so many bad reviews but I purchased one about a year ago now. I'm a typical teenager, I sit playing on my phone while it charges, I charge my phone a lot. Charger lasted me a year. Still works fine now however I'm buying a new one because I caught it on a sharp corner and slit the wire and don't want to risk it. Highly recommend though!

    Never had a problem

    I've never had a problem with lightning cables/chargers. I only purchased a new one to work with the Ford Sync in my car. As long as you pull it out with the plug and not the cable then they don't break. I'm still using my original cable from 3 years ago.

    Two years wonder

    I've been using the same lightning cable that came with my iphone 5s for more two years. Still works like a new one, no defects, no delay in charging, probably better than those cheap imitator cables.

    Stop pulling from the cable...

    The reason you people go through cables so quickly is because you keep pulling by the cord... Start pulling from the plastic and it will last much much longer.. Don't complain about apples quality and start using common sense

    from reading reviews of other people it makes me want to slap them across the face ... this product is to charge not to be in the kitchen and expecting the cable to reach all the way from your room... i been having apple products since the 3rd gen ipod and the cables of course get all beat up from constant use but they would still work as good as new... 1000x better than the cheap $3 6ft charging cables from china ... you get what you pay for ;)

    Perfect, no issues.

    I have owned 5 Lightning cables since Lightning was introduced several years ago, Each of the cables is from a new Apple product. Every one of them has worked perfectly as intended since the dates of purchase. Love their convenience and size!

    It is your iPhone connector port, not the cable.

    I hate to admit it because I struggled with two cables for months until I checked out the forums. Your iPhone connector port is probably stuffed with lint which may be the reason the cables don't appear to be working.

    Cleaned mine out with the end of a paper clip and wow. Straight into charge mode

    Happy days! Big thanks to the guys on the apple forums who solved this problem for me.

    Only breaks if YOU break it.

    I have had a lot of IPhones in my time, I have bought many of these cables so that I have one for many locations, the Car, Home office, Bedroom, Work Office, travel bag (travel abroad weekly) none have EVER broken - why, because I don't break them like everyone else, if you pull a cable out without holding the end it will break so don't do it.

    Pull the cable out with a bit of care instead of tugging it so hard from the middle and it will last.

    Without a doubt

    Apples "lightening" cord far surpasses any of the 3rd party cords I've personally trialed. After trying the MANY different 3rd party cords, the cord which comes in the box truly is the best one for that particular product. Many websites provide in-depth reviews about specific 3rd party lightening cords which are supposedly far more superior to apples. The truth is, these websites and reviews are all sponsored or made by those 3rd party companies and this is nothing new. My point is, apple products work best with apple products. If the exterior of the cord is wrecked, well, that's your doing and not apples. When it comes to the performance of the cord, apple has always used materials which are designed to peak performance of their product (remember apple has competition too). If apple wanted their lightening cord to look or behave like a 3rd party cord, they would've built their own, just saying. Lets also not let these reviews turn you away. 2,000 negative reviews over the past 3 years is PITIFUL in comparison to the 49,000,000 iPhones sold last quarter. Think of those odds now, you have a better chance of being struck by lightening than encountering a troubled cord.
