      DUST is the Answer !!

      I've noticed a lot of people are saying that this cable doesn't work and that they've had it replaced many times. I used to be that person.....but I have the A I've noticed a lot of people are saying that this cable doesn't work and that they've had it replaced many times. I used to be that person.....but I have the ANSWER... There is NOTHING wrong with the cable - there simply is too much dust inside the port of your iOS device e.g. iPhone 5. Just use something as simple as a toothpick and take out all the accumulated dust. That's why sometimes the cable works if you "insert or push it at an angle" because of all the dust!! So REMOVE THE DUST from the port and hey presto !!

      Terrible. Keep breaking and cost is ridiculous.

      I have been through so many lightning cables, I have lost count. At least five of these 1m ones (all broke) and third party ones are even worse. The Apple I have been through so many lightning cables, I have lost count. At least five of these 1m ones (all broke) and third party ones are even worse. The Apple cables cost way too much and are of appalling quality. It is galling to read the tiny number of positive reviews for this truly awful product saying that the problem is just because people don't take care of the cables. What offensive nonsense. They cost a lot of money and are a pain to replace, but they stop working even when carefully handled. The idea practically everyone else who has written a review is simply a careless idiot is not only rude, it is really quite dim. These cables have uber-delicate internal wires that seem to get disconnected very easily. The microchips in them require extra internal cables, so there is more to go wrong and it seems like the only design imperative was for it to be small. I'd rather something bigger that worked!! Third party cables frequently don't work and even those sold with 'Made for iPhone' approval and sold by Apple will frequently fail and many won't charge at all as the iPhone or iPad will claim that 'This accessory may not be supported' and then fail to charge. Of course, that's better than it exploding the phone if it really is dodgy, but come on! After having that issue with a LOT of third party cables, I bought more of these Apple ones and all but one have failed. It really is stunning why Apple allowed this problem to continue for so long and haven't apologised about it and still have made no promise to improve them. Of course, wireless and inbuilt solar charging would be great, but I'd settle for a cable that works. It is hard to know what to recommend as there aren't many alternatives that are very good either. That said, my Belkin one in my car has been OK for several months and has withstood being wound up and unwound repeatedly. My iPhone and iPad are a big part of my life, taking over ever more functions, and with services like Apple Pay we are placing ever more reliance on our Apple devices. If you run out of battery on the Tube in London, you could end up being overcharged if you can't touch out. If you were hoping to pay for a meal with your iPhone, you can't if it's not powered. Being able to charge the device up is so fundamental to being able to use these devices that I just can't see why this isn't being treated seriously. Wireless charging is long overdue and competitors are way ahead on that. I'm not going to upgrade my iPhone 6+ to the next model if it doesn't have wireless or a new type of cable. In the meantime, please stop selling these awful cables and switch to a toughened Lightning cable that is designed with some slack on the internal cables so they don't come detatched so easily! And please make it easier for third parties to make alternatives that are safe, cheap and reliable too. Luckily, my JBL speaker dock (cheap and v loud, highly recommended) does charge well (and has a USB port so can do your iPad at the same time if you can find a Lightning cable that works :-P ! It is truly infuriating that I'm now having to spend another £10-£20 on yet another cable. I could have paid for one year's access to Apple Music for the same amount I've spent on these ruddy things! I think I'll have to hope another Belkin one will be as sturdy as the one in my car!!! Come on Apple, my 128GB iPhone 6 Plus cost as much as a used car! Please make charging it more straightforward, less expensive and reliable! Pretty please?!

      Bad cable design, come on Apple you can do better!

      Like all the others, have been through so many lightning cables in just a year or two. Some smugly say you only have to be more careful when pulling them out a Like all the others, have been through so many lightning cables in just a year or two. Some smugly say you only have to be more careful when pulling them out and grip only the tiny plastic end, etc. I say, design the cable to handle real life!! Make the part you have to grab large enough to grab without a pair of tweezers, if that's the only way the cable will survive. It's ridiculous having to treat these cables as delicate instruments to get them to last a reasonable lifetime. The products being charged, I've found to be tough as nails and am very happy, but these over-sensitive cables are the Achilles Heel of the whole Apple product line. It's inexcusable that the cables are not durable enough to survive outside a clean-room laboratory white-gloves environment. If any company would make a ruggedized version to stand up to real use/real life, they would have one heck of a blockbuster product -- I'll take a half-dozen and you can name your price, after all the money already burned on these "disposable" Apple cables!

I've had my iPad 2 for 4 years and again, still on the original charger and lead! Both leads might show some slight signs of wear but charges as it should! Pull the white plastic piece to unplug from the devices and they will last! Bit pricey from apple but I bet I've spent £20 on cheap ones over the 2 years for my misses' phone as she doesn't understand how to unplug the cable properly!!
