    Total garbage

    I have had 3 iPhones and 3 iPads with this connector, and every single one of them have broken at the neck. It's very disheartening to have such a high quality device with such a horrendously under-performing accessory. I am now using 4 different aftermarket charging cables that cost one third of Apple's cord. This reminds me of when the Dodge Ram changed it's appearance in the late 90's. The trucks were beautiful, but the transmissions were complete garbage, much like Apple's charging accessories.

    These cables are unacceptable

    I can't count the number of the Lightning to USB cables I have bought. I'm not talking about the cheap gas stations knockoffs either. Come on Apple, we need a better cable with a little more length. Please!

    The DEAL BREAKER reason why I WON"T buy a new iPhone

    When you can't charge your phone because of these cheap connectors and charging ports, and something big happens like your car breaks down, or you miss an appointment, all because you can't charge y our phone. THAT IS A DEAL !

    Give that the charging ports on the phones wear out fast, and that the cords themselves wear out. I am beyond angry.

    Add in the constant messages saying "This charging accessory is not support by this device" and the constant connect and disconnect beeps. This was a huge fail on the part of Apple.

    Apply used to be known for quality, now they are showing that profits at the expense of their customer base is going to erode their customer base.

    Want to fix it Apple? Offer free repairs to charging ports and cheap charging cords.

    People want reliability not a PoS. People ask me why I use an older iPhone. Because I do not plan to upgrade every again. I will switch to Android, or go back to a flip phone rather than deal with cords that I can't rely on.

    What it means is Apple successfully is turning their staunches fans into angry former customers.

    Apple, gestures in your direction.

    This cable rips at the connector really fast!!!

    I have had my iPhone 6S for a month now, and even though the phone works really well the lightning cable is useless! The cable ripped at the connector head, and this happened with the lightning cable that came with my previous iPhone 5! The older 30 pin connectors actually lasted longer than this lightning cable. I have started looking at the 3rd party lightning cables by Spigen and Belkin as they offer braided lightning cables, which will not fray or shred like the Apple lightning cables that come with our iPhones.

    Apple stop worrying about a dumb pink iPhone and start fixing your lightning cable!!!!!!

    Quality and great support

    The Apple chargers are one of the best chargers. I have never really had a problem with them (maybe one).They can sometimes fray at the very end near the lighting connector.
    This usually happens from using your device while it is plug in and the phone sitting a certain way on the charger Example - (laying down).
    The great thing is there is a year warranty on all Apple products. Most of the time when the cable is damaged you can take it to an Apple Store and they replace them free of charge (keep your proof of purchase). if you don't live close to an Apple Store, you can call 1800-MYAPPLE and the reps can send a replacement. You don't have to keep buying them over and over again. With in a year. ( This warranty doesn't include accidentally breaking it , like a pet chewing it)

    Low Life Expectancy

    The cable started to shed its covering within a month.

    Falls apart, no strain relief.

    This cord is terribly designed. The insulation gets stripped because there is no proper strain relief.

    This cord was designed for ascetics rather than durability, which is why I'll never buy an apple cable in my life, unless they start listening to their customers and the reviews.

    Terrible, Terrible, Terrible, Terrible, Terrible

    Absolute horror of a product at an absolutely disgusting price. The burning timbers of rotten old wood used to send smoke signals were a more efficient accessory to communication technology. This self-destructing cable of doom has failed me for the last time, back to the Nokia 3210 and the joy of indestructible heavy reliability...

    wish I could give it zero stars- worthless piece ever !!!

    My husband was accusing me of breaking my iphone cables - and there we go, I just saw over 100 pages of reviews, turns out I'm not the only one!

    After the 3rd one, I bought some cheap aftermarket cables which also break after about 2 months, but at least I can have 7 of them instead of one from Apple. If someone tells you that original Apple cables for $20 will not break - don't believe them, soooo not true!!! They last about the same,

    Because of that, I will not ever buy an Iphone again.

    Needs redesigning

    I have got through 4 of these cables now even after trying internet tips to try and prolong their life. The design of these is wrong as being able to plug in on either side causes the cable to be twisted and they end up breaking over time. A design that allows the end to be twisted has to be introduced or generally a better quality cable that can tolerate the stresses it will be put under using multiple use. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't need to use it often, but I can't leave the home without my charger as the battery on my IPhone and iPad don't last long enough. If the cables were less than a third of the current price then I wouldn't complain as much. While there is a a design problem Apple should make it cheaper for their customers to replace the product.

    Not even worth the 1 Star - Worthless product!

    Why do you even make these cables? They are broken like every two months! Unbelieveble worthless product.

    I literally hate it with all of my heart

    Stop making newer versions of phones until the phone chargers get fixed. Having to replace a phone charger every month is absolutely ridiculous. Please fix it. I tried to rate it half a star which is still too much, but it wouldn't let me.

    Poor quality - not durable at all

    I've had to buy so many of these because the wires inside the outer white sleeve constantly break at the lightning connector.
    It's such a shame as iPhone, Ipads Macbooks are excellent.

    Come on Apple at this price they should be very durable, start taking note of the review ratings.

    Won't be buyin another iPhone

    This charger blows. As everyone has indicated, it breaks within 3-4 months. I refuse to buy another iPhone because of the poor quality of this charger. Samsung Galaxy's are better phones anyway.

    no more apple for me

    The whole Apple experience has been dismal for me, including their stupid cables. They don't last. Apple does not care enough about their customers to make a decent cable for 30 bucks? And then they use IOS to discourage people from trying to charge their devices with aftermarket cables that cost a lot less and are at least equal quality. The ghost of Steve Jobs is alive and well. I won't be trapped in their stupid ecosystem in the future, though. My next phone will be android. Shame on you Apple.

    poor quality, over priced, and terrible value

    After 12 months the cable stopped working. The quality of the cable is very poor and it is almost like it is designed to break easily. I take excellent care of my things so for a cable to last just 12 months is very disappointing, especially when Apple is meant to be a high quality premium brand. The cost of replacing the cable is obscene and bares no relation to the cost of manufacture. I've had two iphones but I'm strongly considering buying a different brand for my next phone.

    Don't even brother.

    If I could rate this 0/5 stars, I would. Bought a second cable at the start of September and it is now October 28th and it has died. Of course I take it with me everywhere as it's a charger and I have long days of work and college. But the pathetic life line of under two months is a joke. It's unfair to ban other companies from making the same charger when the own company can't even make a charger to save its life. Sadly, this will be my last iPhone, when it dies I will be going to a different phone provider.

    I gave up!!! I switch Charging Cable Companies

    I know just use Belkin charging cables. Although almost the same price, these cables last a whole lot longer. I use to replace my cables almost every month. However, I've had my Belkin cable for about a year now with no issues. The cable is like a hard wire inside it. Hope it works for you. I love Apple, but I don't want to just keep wasting money on something I don't need to.
