    Breaks very easily

    I've been through three cables in about 6 months. My 30 pin lasted for years. The cable needs to be built more sturdily. I also work at Sams club. Our display cables make it a week too before they are broken from all of the wear. These were introduced to be more sturdy, not less.

    Shocking

    Nothing like being shocked from your iphone 5 cable. Beware these are very dangerous, picked up my charging phone in my car and was shocked by exposed wires. I then began checking mine and my husbands other iphone 5 cables to realized that they are all breaking in the same exact spot. Not worth $19.99 Apple needs to recall these cables and introduce a new reinforced design. NOT HAPPY!

    Complete Rubbish!

    Really angry, this is my third charger in what?, 9 months, same problem that everyone else has, after a while the wire breaks ,and the wire has to be held in position to charge. I would recommend that other people stop wasting their money on these expensive, cheaply made chargers and buy from other sites.

    Complete disgrace

    After researching if any one elses cable is damaged so early i found this and was shocked to see how many people have the same problem, I would like to know if apple are doing any thing about this as the numbers are unbelievable.

    I have only had my iphone 5 and charger for few months and its already not working i need to wiggle the wire at the plug end for it to start charging.

    We all should get a free cable as its clear its a faulty product.

    Terrible Cable

    This cable has already broken. I had to purchase additional cables which still break. They are made cheaply. Do not buy this cable. Go with a different brand that makes a much stroger cable.

    Bad Cables

    When I upgraded to the iphone 5 I knew I would need new charging cabless, so I went ahead and bought two additional cables for my office and in my car. Now, all three cables keep shorting out. It will constantly go from not charging to charging, multiple times in a matter of seconds. This is so frustrating!!! I don't want to have to keep buying new charging cables and I think I shouldn't have to. I never once had this problem with the old prong charger. Maybe it's just my chords, but they are never in a weird position and with three in the rotation, one is never used more than the other.

    iPhone 5 charger

    Exactly the same as all the other reviews, my third charger in 5 months has broken at the lightening connected end. Have now resorted too buying a cheaper one off a well known auction site, works much better and has already lasted longer than these £15 chargers.

    Junk

    I have bought three cables and it keeps breaking....I have been using Apple products since many years, but am really disappointed...Apple products are losing credibility. I hate to say this since I have been using Apple products since a long time, but may be time to switch to some other company....

    This is unacceptable!

    I have owned at least 20 of the old style cables with all of our iPods, iPads, and iPhones over the years. Not one ever broke. We have had eight break in the first nine months of owning our three new iPad minis.

    I am not sure what to do. Completely unacceptable!

    Seriously?

    I bought my iPad mini 2 months ago, and my charger broke overnight. I have never removed my charger from that very plug, never pulled it, never done anything dangerous to it, yet it broke suddenly last night. Now I have to HOLD it in position to charge, I can't leave it unattended. Please sort this out, apple! Bring out a better, more resistant charger! I can't, and I won't pay £15 to pay for a new charger, when the old one breaking wasn't even my fault.

    Charger lead

    Apple you really need to sort this out .
    When you spend over £500 on an iPad you expect the charger to last for the lifetime of the product.....not 6 months !!!!!!!!!
    It's a rip off

    keeps breaking

    I love my iPhone 5 but these cables have been extremely disappointing. The top keeps popping off or stops working. I keep purchasing these and am surprised a company this great has not issued a recall or offer replacement options or a reduced price to those who have purchased this device within a year.

    Still love Apple, but sad about this.

    Hopeless

    Two down. One lasted 10 months, the other just 3 months. What are Apple thinking ? And £13 each to replace as well - what a joke.

    Poor durability

    As others, wire has developed a 'crinkle' in the top near the connection point, and has been increasingly unreliable (only charging when at certain angles, switching the charge on and off when the phone hasn't moved) and today has stopped working completely. I have had several iPhone 3/4/iPod chargers over the years for different devices and have never had a problem with them, but the iPhone 5 charger has been treated exactly the same and has stopped working. Judging by the other reviews, this is not an isolated incident. Poor from a company I expect better of.

    Awful

    I have now bought three incredibly overpriced charging leads. Each has lasted about three months before the wires inside snap and it becomes unusable.

    When you buy a product as expensive as an iPhone or I pad, you expect everything, including accessories to be of a high standard. These leads are of an appalling quality and at the rate I have got through them so far, cost around £60 a year to keep replacing!!

    So bad, I'm strongly inclined to move away from Apple altogether.

    Trash

    The wire is complete trash! I have already re placed my wire 3 times in the lat 6 months. It starts to curl up slowly then the insides brakes. Also the rubber just splits open. They really need to change the wire completely or just make it thicker. Stop being cheap and add more rubber!
