    poor product, questionable service

    • Written by from Basingstoke

    very poor quality (especially for the excessive price) My latest has lasted less than 6 months, and is the 4th cable ive had to replace. I returned it to the store today and was told I was not using it correctly, and I should never use the ipad while its plugged in! Really??

    The review pages are littered with poor quality reviews for these cables, Apple need to improve the quality.

    Poor product

    • Written by from Maidstone

    I am on the phone with Apple just now arranging for the collection and replacement of a 2m iPhone lightning product, which is no longer working. Actually my standard length cable has just broken as well. Well at least Apple seems to be replacing them for free. Of course, I would rather that these products didn't break in the first place.

    Are the individuals posting 5 star reviews being paid?!

    • Written by from surrey

    I find myself here AGAIN in search of a new charger cable, and this situation is now beyond the point of comedy. I have purchased numerous chargers over the last 6 years or so that I have had an iPhone and in my honest opinion, considering the size and success of the company, the quality is abhorrent. I have never had an issue with my Macbook charger, however i wish the same could be said for my phone. I am not aggressive with my cable, nor am I using it to tow any cars as one reviewer remarked. I find it infuriating that this is such a regular occurrence. Not only have i purchased 4 new chargers in the last 6 months alone, but this is a common occurrence for many iPhone users. I think those remarking that their chargers have been nothing but perfect should be incredibly grateful, opposed to pointing the finger at those unhappy with the quality. I would much rather have no problems and no complaints, if only my chargers felt the same way. Is there any harm in trying to improve on a product that clearly has mixed reviews from loyal customers? I'm soon due my upgrade and I am seriously debating whether or not to continue with the iPhone at all because of this.

    AWFUL, OVER PRICED, NOT DURABLE!!

    • Written by from Renfrew

    To put it quite frank I am embarrassed that a company as big as Apple cannot make chargers for their products that are durable and sustainable! My advise to anyone is do not invest hundreds of pounds into a mobile phone that has a charger that breaks after a few months. The leads are faulty and useless and terribly made! Apple design team should be ashamed that they for one are design these chargers and charging consumers £25 to replace something they did NOT break!! Very very frustrated angry and disappointed customer!!!

    Worst quality cable you will ever find.

    • Written by from Ramsey

    Like all the other reviews, I was in the habit of having to buy new cables every 5 minutes until I extended the lifespan myself.

    Admittedly, it is a crude way of extending the life of these inferior cables but it has worked on both my iPhone and iPad cables. When i bought the last cable for each device, I was determined it was going to be the last, so before I started using the cable, I wrapped white insulating tape around the edge of the cable at each end, tight against both parts which connect with the socket, enough to make the cable stiff, so it does not bend at either end, when charging.

    It doesn't look great when you have to charge your devices, as you shouldn't have to do this but mine has lasted nearly a year now, on both cables I have, so a small piece of insulating tape has saved me quite a lot of money. It does seem like a deliberate ploy by Apple, to increase their profits, as they have more than adequate knowledge and expertise, to develop a cable that will last, like other Manufacturers have managed to do, probably as they want to keep their customers long term, whereas Apple do not seem to mind their customers losing faith in their products.

    Lasted 2 months before splitting

    • Written by from Helensburgh

    The quality of these cables is shocking. Mine lasted just over 2 months before splitting. £25 down the drain. Come on Apple - your stuff is so good, why let yourself down with lousy cables? Can't find any way to claim a refund but really would like one.

    Bad quality

    • Written by from Durham

    I don't know how apple makes these chargers, I don't care if the style doesn't match, you can still make white cables that lost longer, every few months I need a new cable, I've had my iphone for nearly a year and I've already bought 4 cables, WHY!! you guys need to chill or just give us free chargers if you aren't planning on improving the cables you already make.
    Very disappointed apple, I can't believe that a company like you make these bad quality cables, step up your game man!!

    Poor Quality

    • Written by from Merthyr Tydfil

    Poor quality/high price!
    Cable goes at the point of connection to lightning connecter.
    Sleeve comes out exposing the wires that can sometimes give a shock.
    Fed up of replacing them.
    Come on Apple - premium products - rubbish overpriced connectors!!

    Very poor quality

    • Written by from London

    The cable is already splitting at the lightning connecting end after only a few months. Very, very poor quality. And a very high price. Expected much better, that's why I bought Apple, and at the price it should be a top quality, reliable cable. Unfortunately it's not. Not recommended at all.

    Great Profit Centre For Apple

    • Written by from Norwich

    As most reviewers state the cable doesn't last any longer than a few months before it starts splitting at the Lightning conductor end which means you constantly have to replace them. Great business for Apple at £25 a pop not so great for Apple's loyal customers we have 5 Apple devises that need this type of cable so you can do the Math. Apple this product needs improving full stop.

    • Written by from kibworth

    I love my iPhone and stuff but these chargers are awful I'vejust bought my 15th charger today! I've had my phone for about 10 years!!
    Apple needs to redesign the charger with what they used with the older chargers asI still have the iPod touch 4Gen and the charger it came with and it still works to this day and I had the iPod the first day it came out!!

    Quite unlike Apple really, but mine broke within 6 monnths - frayed around the join between the cable and the lightning connector. Very disappointing.

    I've had nearly ten chargers from apple in the space of a year. I don't appreciate paying 25 pound for these cables which I think is an absolute joke. Not good ! Love my iphone but the chargers are just shameful.

    Heart breaking cables!

    • Written by from Greenwich

    By the time I finish buying cables over the life of this iPhone I would have spent more than the value of the phone! When is apple going to do something about it? How can you put out a new phone with the same faulty cable after your customers have been complaining forever? So my best option is to buy a new make for which I have to remove my phone case to use?
    No matter how cool your phone is its pointless without charge; so I may as well switch brands because I would end up spending the same amount for this frustration in the end...I have been very patient but customer loyalty dwindles with this nonsense kmt!
