    Disgusting-Low Quality, Exorbitant Prices, Pathetic Attitude-GET A GRIP!

    These cables are the representation of a mentality that is a despicable aspect of humanity.
    GREED.
    They cut costs as much as reasonably possible at the expense of quality.
    These manufacturer's savings are not passed on the the consumer.
    The price of this simple, essential, and cheap piece of hardware costs the consumer more than it would to buy a 32GB Flash Drive.
    That is utterly ridiculous.
    The nerve.

    Apple, you should be ashamed.

    Terrible

    I have had this phone for over a year and I'm about to purchase my seventh lightening cord. Terrible product, not worth the $20 dollars to replace over and over again. Called Apple for assistance and was told that since my warranty ran out I would have to go out and buy another charger and that the problem was not the USB cord. After reading reviews I have discovered this is a truly terrible product. I have always loved Apple, but after the wasted money and rude support I will not be buying any more products. Lower price or improve product! Attempting to find alternative lightening cable in hopes this will last until i'm done with this phone.

    horrible

    Cheaply made cable. Had the first one for a year before having to buy another one. This one lasted 4 months. I'm not looking to spend $20 on something that is going to last 4 months (not even quite 4 months).

    Absolutely Terrible Quality and Time Consuming to Replace

    Upon reading the rest of these reviews I realize that I have not even endured the worst of it. I just bought my first iPhone in October and I cannot believe that my charger doesn't work all of the sudden. I can't believe we all spent this much money on an iPhone just to get such a terrible charger that is not only expensive to replace but just utterly reliable altogether. I have tried to call Apple Care and Apple Support at least 5 times just to try and receive a new charger since my phone is still under warranty and the amount of trouble I have gone through just to attempt to retrieve a new one is unbelievable. This product is not worth any of the time and trouble I have gone through.

    Truly the worst cable ever designed by humans

    I love you Apple but your Lightning to USB Cable makes me want to cry. How is it possible that nobody in Apple can see truly how bad this cable is? Look at all the bad reviews everywhere!

    Cable Breaks at end

    On my third cable.... first cables broke at the pin end where the wire meets the connector. It appears they just snapped inside. I never had this issue with the cable for my iPhone 4. Not sure what happened to the quality here.....

    No stars

    Between 3 contracts all on IPhone 5 and 5s for different members of the family, I think we have gone through 9 in total, to creat such a masterpiece then spoiling the whole thing with a sub standard lead is disgraceful. Steve Job would be sheathing. How the standards are falling. Why should you have to make appoints, waste fuel money and parking fees to change a lead. What a joke. I wish I could give this no stars.poor poor quality

    RIDICULOUS!

    DO NOT BUY THESE CABLES! I've gone through 4 of these cables already. TRASH product. It works for a month or two and then quits. Ironic how Apple released a software update for iPhones so they'll exclusively charge with "certified" cables. GET IT TOGETHER APPLE!

    Poor quality

    The original cable that came with my new Ipad mini broke after a few weeks. It would only charge when you held it in an awkward position and the ipad couldn't recognise it. I took it to the apple store where I was treated like a criminal with a member of staff even screaming in my face that he was "99.9% sure it was a counterfeit cable" he then took it to his manager who confirmed that it was an original cable. The cable was then replaced and now the plastic covering the lead is beginning to bubble up and melt. I have heard that this can cause the lead to catch fire and I am now constantly worried when charging my device. This lead is poor quality and cheaply made. I would not recommend apple products with this cable to anyone!

    Step Your Game Up with the USB cables!!!

    I've always loved the iPhone ever since owning my first three years ago the iPhone 4S. Never had a problem with the phone or the USB cable. Now I have the 5S, but the USB cable is very poor quality. It hasn't even been a year and the cable has stopped charging my phone! I've questioned what I did to "damage" this product and arrived to nothing. Basically it stopped working by itself it broke itself. Very disappointed, Apple took one step forward and two steps back with this product. Now I have to waste my money buying another one. To think that the 30-pin USB cable could last me for years and then this cable completely stops charging my phone! Makes no sense. Please go back and correct your mistakes.

    Don't buy.

    I have an iphone5 for about a year now and so far I have gone through 6 cables. I'm not even kidding. The chargers break really easily. The quality of the product is really bad.It's so expensive also. I hope Apple can do something about their chargers.

    Your client feedback is clear. Action it.

    Apple, your client feedback is clear, the only cable that can charge idevices is not strong enough for its function. Your increase in cable sales is not due to your clients replacing their 30 pin cables, its due to constantly replacing the weak connection between the cable and the head of the connector. This needs to be addressed.

    Awful, Unreliable and Missing the 4 charger

    Iphone 5 charger is awful... I am on my 6th charger in 8 months. I would have stuck with the 4 had I known that I would have to go through this hassle.

    It is such a nuisance to never be able to completely rely on the charger for your phone because the charger is all around bad and unreliable. The reason I left android is due to the fact that there were bad chargers and phones died often. I now am very sad to say that I feel as if I am back in android world. Hopefully the 6 will have better hope.

    Infuriating

    This item is an absolute joke, I have had my iPhone just over a year now and I am on my 8th charger. Ever since the ios7 update my phone just dies whenever it feels like no matter what percentage It's telling me I have, which leads to me now needing to charge my phone a lot more frequently and carrying a charger with me. The wire just comes apart from the end far too easily, I just don't get how this product is still aloud to be sold, it's robbery. Apple why don't you just look at the reviews on the website alone and sort the problem out it's a joke with the price you're charging and refusing to sort out the problem, useless.

    It only lasted me 3 months

    It's not even a 2 star product Apple! The chargers need to be recalled because they are cheap quality and I'm sure everyone else agrees. My charger only lasted 3 months and then the cable snapped right under the plug. I thought I was an idiot but after reading all the reviews on here, I guess its not really my fault. The charger itself was made terribly.
