    Two weeks old and now dead.

    Got my IPhone 6+ two weeks ago and now the lightning cable doesn't work. Hello Apple do you read these reviews. I can't believe a Company that prides itself on the customer experience is not reading these reviews and taking action.

    Terrible quality for the price

    Terrible design flaws mean that this cable breaks really easily even with careful normal use. I could buy a much cheaper cable from an alternative supplier but I had foolishly thought that buying from Apple would mean a better product.
    Really expensive and really rubbish!

    It's just awful

    The lightning cable is the worst piece of technology I've ever dealt with. Seriously, this fragile cable is so bad I can't even argue how other brands' products are lightyears away from Apple just based on functionality. Ok, I get the idea of the cable being versatile and all that but omg. SJ must be turning in his grave with the lack of customer care this cable represents. I'm not the worst handler, I've never broke any cable of any other brand before. And I had a lot of phones in the last 11 years. I must have switched phones at least 14 times and it's the latest (which was supposed to be better) that was the only which I've ever had any problem with. I could buy a cheap phone with the money I spent on this chargers, seriously. This is not funny. It makes me ignore any other features Apple products have to provide, I just want out of this product just because of the hassle. I hate to say it but Apple's lightning USB cable is awful and Apple's products are awful by association.

    Worst product

    Apple thinks giving a sturdy charger is a issue of stylish prestige?? They think its very fancy to provide a delicate wired charger. Actually its so irritating and annoying that its worn out very frequently and have to replace it. If they are not going to address thia and deliver a good charger for people who aleeady own it am goin to switch from apple to android. I have been with apple for 6 years but this cheap thing annoys. I will also campaign my friends not to buy this one orally as well as in socia media

    Garbage!

    Dear Apple,
    Years ago when I purchased my very first Mac computer I fell in love! Since then we have had a great relationship, filled with continued love renewed every few years or so with a new necessity. My old Mac is now used for my kids, playing some old computer games and for typing practice. At 18 years old, it's a dinosaur, but it WORKS! My MacBook also works still although it needs to be plugged in now as the battery cannot hold a charge anymore. My iMac also still works, now 11 years old...has trouble with online stuff though as its a bit too outdated. My iPad2 is going strong, iPhone 3g just recently gave up, but that was after 5 years, dropped into the lake fishing (like 3 minutes completely submerged, no cover, cracked screen...), and countless spills. Now I have my iPhone 5S, gold:) I love it! What I don't like, it that it's cheaper quality than my old 3G, the cords have broken 5 times now, and the battery lasts for only half a day. It's 3 months old. I am finding myself drawn over the line to Samsung, as I have had to borrow my husbands Galaxy more than a few times, because my beloved failed me and died. I love you Apple, but my love is not unconditional. Your products are always industry leaders, driving the rest, why are you starting to fail me? Why begin making subpar products, when you have had only the BEST up until now? I have been using you since I was 8 years old, I am 36 now. Don't make me suffer through windows! Please, get back to the basics, quality, durability, functionality, superiority! Apple used to be the best, I recomended you for the last 20 years, helped facilitate the purchase of 500 iPads at my children's school, and use you exclusively at home. But as my newer products Appletv, ipad, and iPhones continue to have issues like battery durability, (iPhone4 was particularly awful) cables breaking constantly, and overall problematic systems requiring factory resets, AppleCare visits, and replacements I am becoming a little bitter. After my barely 2 year old iPhone 4 died due to faulty charging port, I put my faith in Apple and bought the 5s, now we are once again having problems. Not good! I may walk away after this, into the android world. I know they lag but at least they stay on, the Chargers don't break, and they are not completly outdated and locked out of App Store after 2 years. Apple this is a desperate plea, please get your s**t together! Don't force me to leave you!

    Terrible

    I have had to buy multiple of these cables. After a few months of use, they stop working. At 20 bucks one would expect better quality

    Not a Long-Lasting Product

    I an very disappointed and discouraged with Apple's cables, especially the Lightning to USB Cable. I have been using them for a long time and have spent hundreds of dollars replacing them after a couple of months-and with normal use. I don't even take them anywhere and am quite careful with them. They are cheaply made; the plug-in ends either burn out or twist and break no matter how carefully one treats them, and they are expensive considering the short time they last. Apple wants the owners of their devices to also use their accessories but continually change them and never improve on the quality. T'aint fair fellas. Cheating your users isn't good business.

    Terrible but we're stuck!

    I'm also disappointed that I have now had to buy my 3rd cable in the space of 9 months (possibly mine have lasted longer than some!). I would expect a charger to last the lifetime of the product it's meant to charge. It's a complete rip-off by Apple, but we're stuck in a rut and can't get out. Sort it PLEASE Apple...

    Apple - beautiful products connected with shoddy cables

    How can a company that claims to pioneer such high standards of design produce something as terrible as this?
    And for £15!
    Please Apple - respect the fact we've invested money in your hardware and supply cables that last more than 5 minutes.

    Terrible quality

    I have had to purchase 3 of these cables in the last 4 months. Terrible quality, same issue every time where it appears the cables fray internally near the ends, the plastic then becomes very flimsy and within no time at all, a direct connection is not possible. Why don't Apple fix this?? The cables are not exactly cheap either......

    These things are junk.

    I've been through two of these in less than a year with my iPhone 5. Normal use—the thing doesn't even leave my desk. What's up with this thing? Apple should fix and send all iPhone owners a new one for free. Terrible. Would give zero stars if I could.

    Fragile Lightning Cable

    I have got through six cables in the last two years. I would like to update to I Phone six and mini my son wants an air but jus can't buy something with
    Such an unreliable charging system. My I phone 3s I still have the original cable and is used daily for work use. This was a quality product and still used as a reserve when I am waiting for the new cables to arrive. Come on Apple please please please sort this on your next models! Samsung is calling!!

    Rubbish

    Awfully designed charger, very flimsy and breaks regularly. Far too expensive for any charger, nevermind one prone to breaking regularly (after only a few months use)

    Poor quality make.

    For a company that boasts quality, I really hope they read the reviews and re-evaluate this product. I have had at least 10+ Apple cords in the past and every single one has had the wires become loose and no longer able to be used. A similar situation to apple earphones. A redesign is imperative.

    Moving onto Samsung

    I am sick to death with the Apple cables expensive and stop working in less than a few months. What's worse is the distinct lack of accountability Apple has for this utterly appalling product. On I go to the 15th cable, roll on upgrade month!!
