    Don't waste your money

    Lightening cords don't last more than a month or two. don't spend your money on these worthless cords. I cannot believe how cheap apple has become. lifelong fan here changing directions on my electronics because i've spent nearly $100 in apple cords in the past 7 months.

    breaks within a month

    The cords are flimsy and break easily. Who has time to keep buying new cords or sending them in for warranty? I'm glad I held off on buying an iphone 6 because nothing is worth this headache.

    Terrible Cable

    As is the case with so many other reviewers, the lightening to USB Cable for my IPad broke after just a few months. For what we pay for Apple products, we should not have to pour money into poorly constructed cables. Fix this Apple!

    Keeps Breaking!!!!

    Cable is very weak at the point where it connects to the lightning end.... Old-style cables were really tough and lasted for years, but these are quite frankly, pathetic. If you even wiggle them or bend it slightly it breaks inside; i've spent for fortune on these because my kids aren't as careful as me, but then they shouldn't need to be cos the cable should be tougher.... PLEASE apple sort it out! I can buy a 3rd part cable that's 50 times tougher... in fact that's exactly what i will be doing from now.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY!

    Go ahead and save your money by buying a non-approved cable. These are no better. You'll get 2-4 months from a non approved one, but spend $2-3 on it. Buy ten of the non-approved ones and you'll come out way ahead.

    Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave. These things are some of the most important apple products made, but they don't last more than a few months. Pathetic.

    Very poor

    I use my iPad on a regular basis. I look after my cables but for some unknown reason I have to buy a new lightening cable virtually every 2 months. I do not carry my cable around and I recharge each night. Some comments I have read suggest that you should always unplug holding the end connector and not the wire. I do this and they still fail. However in most other manufacturing anomalies the manufacturer listens to all their customers and tries to resolve the problem. I don't see this happening. I like my 2 iPads bt I must admit, sadly, I may go back to the 'dark side'. Think of something guys, it is only a cable but it really is ...........

    hate this product!!

    I am so angry, i am currently on my second wire and i am going to have to buy a third as my phone has stopped being charged by the cable. it is really criminal that apple charges you a minimum of 500 pounds for the phone and then charges another 15 pound every time their obviously faulty cable stops working which for me is every 4-6 months . i will never be buying an iPhone ever again.

    And another one...

    I'm not sure what it is about these cords that makes it so they don't last past a few months, but these cords don't last past a few months. Then end where it plugs into your phone gets all bent or twisted and so the wires inside stop working. Apple should just make these cords like they were making the 30-pin, because those things lasted forever. I had my iPod for six years and in that time I needed to replace that cord maybe 2 or 3 times... and never because the cord broke, but because they were lost. I'm so annoyed that I have to pay $20 to replace the cord only to have it break on me a few months from now anyway. They could at least make them cheaper since they're obviously not made well.

    Awful Cord

    The Lightning cords are terrible. My wife and our daughter have an iPhone and two iPads that use these cords. We have been lucky to get more than three months use out of these. The original cords lasted 9 - 12 months. The replacements are garbage. On the other hand the 30 pin cord I am using on my iPhone 4 is four years old an still functions as intended. Get it together Apple. Replacement Lightning cables should be free of charge until you can design a quality, reliable part. If I could give these cords zero stars I would.

    I hate apple chargers

    World's worst phone is iPhone because we have 3 apple products, 2 iPhone and 1 ipad we always found problems using the charger. The biggest problem is the charger and it breaks many times in a year going and coming and the journey and buying it over and over is just a big hastle and a major waste of time. I suggest not to buy it , it's a waste of money!!!

    Appalling quality

    I've had this device for a little over two years and it's lasted well, but unfortunately the same can't be said for the lightning cable - I'm about to have to buy my 5th. It seems like they stop working all of a sudden without any sign of breakage. I think the most annoying thing is that the old cables didn't break anywhere near as often. £15 for something that breaks so easily is daylight robbery.

    damaged easily at cable to lightning or usb end connection

    How many times do I have to buy this cable and ends up crumpled at the end??
    got sick and tired of getting this for $25. what a waste of money.
    bought a third party cable and worked better and more durable but now iOS 8 blocked it!!!
    APPLE, YOU SHOULD FIX THIS CABLE TO WORK FOR A LONGER PERIOD.
    if china brands can make durable cables, you can make your own durable!

    Lightning quick failure.

    My cable that came with my iPad 4 didn't even last 6 months of normal every day use. It is/was too delicate. My old iPad 3 30 pin USB cable lasted longer than this lightning cable. Rather than pay $25-$30 for replacement cable, I've gone for the cheap $1 - $2 third party cables. Even if I have to replace the cheap 3rd party ones every 6 months, it is still more economical than getting a genuine Apple one that may or may not last 12 months.

    4 cables in 1yr

    4 apples cables and 3 Belkin. What is wrong with this picture? Do you actually read your reviews and do something about them? Hello?

    4th cable has quit on me

    I have had 4 cables quit on me in the space of one month, the cables are the new type with smaller head, the older ones (large connection) still work fine. Apple this is definitely a quality issue for you that will not go away. What will you do about fixing this issue for your loyal customers?
