    very badly made

    come on Apple, sort this out. How many one star reviews do you need to recognise that you have an issue with this product ?!?!?!?
    We have 2 iphone 5's in the family and both leads are broken, one of them only after a few months.

    why do the loyal Apple owners have to keep on giving you money for faulty goods. Not very "Apple" is it. You don't mind paying for quality, and at £15 thats exactly what we should be getting. You can see why the eBay products sell so well.

    poor quality

    i have had four of these chords and every single one has had a short near the lightning end of the chord, you need to do something about quality control/durability to make sure the chords don't become faulty within a few months of having them.

    not good enough

    really disappointed with apple, never expected such fragile usb cable. i think apple should make it a bit more robust cables and long enough too so that the customers don't need to spend moneys in buying new cables every week it is broken.

    Very disappointing

    Already had to buy 4 of these rubbish cables for my iphone 5 in so many months....really disappointed...I can't recall ever having issues with The older style cables that came with my 4s, ipods, & ipad. In fact some i have are well over 5years old and they still work.....This is obviously a design fault here which Apple should address.....

    Apple I'm not amused!

    I am disgusted with these poor quality cables! My cable only lasted 4 week now I have to buy another one for £15. My old 30-pin cable last 2 years and this happened in a month, I'm very disappointed. If I wanted to be ripped off I would have visited eBay not apple. Get you're s*** together!

    Rubbish

    Having the same issues. Still have my original iPhone cable which works, and all the others form the 3G, 3GS & 4S, all still work. iPhone 5 cable broke within 3 months of getting the phone. Since then I shelled out on an adaptor and continue to use my old 30-pin cable. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL

    There Needs to be a Minus Star

    Have two iPhone 5's and on IPod 5 all included cables have failed. All have been replaced multiple times. Where is my replacements? Why do I have to keep buying something that doesn't last more than about a month?

    Complete Disappointment.

    Apple needs to up their game. I've had my iPhone 5 for 7 months and I have gone through 2 cables. They work perfectly fine at the start but soon start to crimple and eventually stop working, luckily I have insurance but I'm truly disappointed, Apples products should be of higher quality and durance. I'd suggest buying a universal charger of some sort.

    LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS APPLE!!!!

    This new cable is truly awful. I have had to get a new cable replacement each month because the cable breaks so often. After one of my cables broke I took it to apple and they told me from now on unplug the charger only by the plastic piece and never by the cord. Took their advice but yet again, TWO DAYS LATER my charger needs to be replaced. Only works at a certain angle and then in a week stops working all together. On to my 8th cable now and I'm sure the next one will break again. APPLE LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS AND THESE REVIEWS. Please rebuild this charger cable because it is not functioning properly.

    Terrible

    This thing doesn't even deserve one star. I had my first cable for about three months before one day, I connected my FULLY FUNCTIONAL USB to my computer and my phone would not be recognised. I also got a "Power Surge on Hub Port" error and my phone would reconnect and disconnect repeatedly. I thought that this may be an issue with my computer so I attempted to charge my phone through the power socket and then discovered my cable was no longer functioning properly. It would disconnect and reconnect and I had to move it around to get it to work. As the days went on it just got worse to the point where it stopped working almost completely. I returned it and was given a loan cable from the mobile store. That one worked for about a week before again, it was working fine (in fact charging at the time) until I tried to plug it into my computer and it would not connect, this time with a driver error message. So I tried to reinstall the driver and it still would not work. Then, again I tried to charge my iphone via power socket and the cable would not work AT ALL. I gave it half an hour and tried again, it would charge on one side. As the days went on it got worse and worse to the point where it did not work at all. So as you see both my stopped working after a computer connection error. I returned to the store (they had received my new cable by then) and explained this to them and now they have sent my iphone away. Why must we pay all this money for such a huge inconvenience? It is absolutely ridiculous. Zero stars for this. Sort it out Apple!

    Worst product created by apple ever

    This is by far the worst Charger they have ever made the new wire is the most faulty Piece of cra* i have ever used im going to have to spend My in my bank account on a brand new Faulty wire, This cable ruins the features in a few years you would have basically paid for a new device just from re-buying these cables

    Poor reliability.

    I have now had 4 of these cables and upon recommendation from those who work within the apple store I have made sure so not pull the charger out by the cable. Yet the same has once again happened and the wires are coming loose again and I'm not forced to pay for another cable.

    Very short cable --- Ridiculously Frustrating!!!

    This cable is too short to be used for charging unless you have outlets on the top of your desk ... ridiculous, frustrating, etc.

    Longer third party cables are available but since Apple reportedly puts special, undefined proprietary chips in their cables, choosing a third part cable is always risky!!!

    Again, the whole thing is Ridiculously Frustrating!!!

    Disappointing

    I love my iPhone 5 (purchased about 6 months ago) and I loved my iPhone 4 (still have it and use it as an iPod) however the chargers for both iPhones are of such poor quality!! It is so dissappointing and I am so dissatisfied! I already have had to replace my iPhone 5 charger and have replaced my iPhone 4 charger 2 times. I don't understand why apple doesn't produce a reliable charger that will last More than a few months! I wish I could give ZERO stars

    Terrible

    This charger stops functioning after only a short time of using it, and is not even close to long enough. And I wish Apple had never switched to this charger. That was an awful decision for the company.

    Very poor quality

    I have the original USB cable for my iPod that still works after over seven years. But I've only had my iPad Mini for a few months and the cable is in really bad condition. It only works at a certain angle and I don't think it's going to last very long. It's great that it charges quickly but the quality is more important.
    On top of that, it's very short. I'd have to be very close to a power outlet to be able to use it while on charge, and even then it's still too short.
    This really needs to be fixed ASAP!

    Flimsy and Broken

    It's a great design, but the thing is very very flimsy and easily breakable. The wires near the end of the cord (where it connects to the phone) break very easily. And mine doesn't come under the warranty just because I tried putting tape around it to see if that would work. My advice to the people who have these cords is to be flippin' gentle with how you put the cord in or out of the phone.
