    Really bad!!

    I've had my iPhone 5c for maybe 3 months now and the usb connecting cable for my charger has completely stopped working.

    The end has just bent out of shape completely and overall the cable just seems to be of terrible quality when compared to the old apple cable types.

    So currently I'm left with no charger.
    I went to see how much a replacement would be and Its just ridiculous; £15 for an apple brand replacement for it.
    Really?? £15 for one cable?? That's so unreasonable when honestly the cables are really poor.

    3 broken in 12 months

    I am about to purchase my 4th cable after having my current phone for 11 months. This is a bit of a joke.

    .5 meter lightening cable

    I can not use my phone while it is plugged into this cable. I have to disconnect it, then plug it back in to continue the charging process.

    Garbage.

    This cable is junk. I have never had a cable die on me like the ones made for the iPhone 5. I bought generic ones on eBay a while back, just to have extras. I thought they all died because they were cheap but then my original one started doing the same thing. I've only had it just over a year. Apple needs to figure this one out ASAP. $20 a pop is not cool.

    Disappointed and expensive!

    I have an iPhone 5 and my son has an iPhone 4 and I must say we both LOVE our phones except for the garbage cords they come with!!! In the past six months my son has gone through 3 cords and I have gone through 4 myself. To be on the 4th and 5th cords simply because they are cheaply made is absolutely ridiculous! To realize we are close to $200 in just cords is awful. I think it really stinks that brand new these phones are $500+, yet they can't make a cord that lasts the life of the phone. Is it really necessary to have to repeatedly buy the same accessory over the WHOLE life span of your phones?? I suppose it is of we want to charge our phones!

    Low quality

    Cable broke with few months of usage at home..
    Previous iphone cables (iphone 4) lasted for years.

    Lifetime of 1 year

    I love my iphone 5 but after having it one year my charging cable has broken. I would expect the cable to last as long as the phone and the amazon cable seems to be much more sturdy.

    Junk

    So Apple decides to have an update of iOs that makes sure you cannot use "Inferior products" (cheaper cables)...yet, spending $25 on this "superior product"...it breaks 4 months later, not even a gradual break. Just straight up decides to not work. So I'm left without a phone until I can buy another junky cable that'll just break on me again....giving Apple more money than they deserve.
    Really wishing I did not venture down the Apple path.

    They're great

    I don't know why people give these cables a bad review. They work fine and last for ages!

    If you start yanking your charger from the socket by the cable of course it's going to break! Be careful with your belongings.

    Extremely Poor.

    Whether or not there is a year guarantee, why is the cable breaking so often in the first place?! Personally, i always take out the cable properly and it still breaks. For some, simply taking the product back and forth is a challenge in itself as there isn't a store close by. The price should be lowered and quality of product should improve ASAP.

    Lasted fine with me.

    Since reading reviews of how terrible this cable was i have been dreading the day it breaks and I'd have to pay for another one. However I got an Iphone 5 in December 2012 and I am still using the same USB cable. Its worked fine for me, I think its just your luck with the product and how well you look after it.

    Annoyed.

    My iPhone 5 charger stopped working within a month of purchasing the phone. I received a new one under warranty but now the replacement has stopped working as well. If I could give this product 0 stars, I would. I am very disappointed in the design and subsequent failure of the product. I had my iPhone 4 for years and never had to replace the charger. Something needs to be done about this serious lack of quality control.

    Disposable

    Is very expensive for it's durability
    The cable is simply disposable.
    You will use it for no longer then 4 or 5 months and you are done... It just stops working.

    Needs work

    This charger cable lasted for the past eight months without a problem until today when completely stopped working. This cord is very fragile and I suggest keeping the cord as straight as possible and don't twist it as well or else you'll have to buy a new one like I do.

    WORST PRODUCT EVER!!!

    Okay, so I bought a lightning cable for my iphone 5 2 months ago, and it stopped working yesterday. Today I went to the apple store to buy another lightning cable. Got back home and plugged my iphone 5 in. All fine, until it got to around 80% charger and the lightning cable BROKE ON THE FIRST DAY!!! Are you kiddin me Apple?! This is my 3rd lightning to USB Cable as of 2014! Ridiculous!
    Rating this product 0 out of a million - worst accessory, would not recommend.

    Quit working

    Had my iPhone 4 charger for over 3 years and still use it to charge my iPod. Have had the iPhone 5 now for almost a year and its already shorted out. My three roommates have also had 3 different apple brand chargers that shorted out.

    argh!

    This is the second charger cord I have gone through for my iPad. The 1st came with the iPad and was broken not because of Apple but because my cat chewed it but the second cord I purchased 4 months ago has frayed and snapped all on it's own. Not impressed with how flimsy they are but don't have another option but to buy another cord

    No problems and year guarentee!

    Don't see why people are complaining, these come with a year guarentee so if there is any problems they will replace it?
    Also if you take it out correctly instead of just pulling on it then it doesn't break anyway.
