      TOO SHORT

      I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable. I need a longer one: 5-6 ft for charging and a shorter one 6"-1 ft for connecting to my I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable.

      Verified to be 3.5 foot long cable - works with existing wall and car plugs

      I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they are about 3.5 feet long. Abo I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they are about 3.5 feet long. About the same as previous Apple charging cables. Really, Apple should make them all 6ft long, which is why I am giving this 4 stars. Since 3.5 feet is not usually long enough for most uses, search amazon for "white USB extension" from C2G in 3ft, 6ft or 9ft extension cables for about $2 to $5 dollars, which can then be put in between the wall power brick (or car port adapter) and this cable. Existing power transformers with a USB jack on them (for home or car power port) that worked with your iPhone 3gs, 4 or 4s, should work fine with this new cable and the iPhone 5. 1 amp (1a = 5 watts) is standard for iPhones. 2 amp (2a = 10 watts) is standard for iPads. But it's well known, that if you buy 2 amp (10w) power plug then your iPhone 5 will charge in about 60% of the time. I like the PowerGen brand 10w chargers from amazon for $10.

      Good

      I've had my iPhone 5s for around 2 years now. The original cable that came with it was working fine without any issues. My phone started having issues and Apple I've had my iPhone 5s for around 2 years now. The original cable that came with it was working fine without any issues. My phone started having issues and Apple gave me a new cable and it turned out the problem was with the phone. The new cable that Apple gave me for over 18 months now and it worked perfectly fine without any issues. The end that connects to the phone started to break. Although the cable can be a little bit short, its quality I can say is great as Apple is known for making high quality products. When you buy a cable, I would not suggest buying third party cables because they could cause issues with the phone's battery. It is always better to buy original accessories when it comes to dealing with the electricity of a device.

      Hate the Lightning Cable/Connector

      I absolutely hate the lightning cable and connector. I wasn't going to buy the iPhone 6 after my bad experiences with the iPhone 5, cables breaking, wearing ou I absolutely hate the lightning cable and connector. I wasn't going to buy the iPhone 6 after my bad experiences with the iPhone 5, cables breaking, wearing out, bad connections, constant cleaning, stuff getting stuck in the port, etc but I did and have regretted it ever since. Now I hear that you're going to have to use the lightning port to listen to music because they are getting rid of the headphone jack. No way, I'll never have another iPhone. I hate it using it to charge, I can't imagine using to listen to music or how quickly with as much music as I listen to that I'll wear out the connectors. And no, I'm not interested in bluetooth headsets, I have enough stuff to charge all the time without my headphones being another item. They seriously need to ditch the lightning connector and either use the original 30 pin connector (thicker phone could be good, more battery life which everyone wants) or use something like the mag chargers from the MacBook's, that would be awesome. But the lightning connector = terrible. Even after several years.
