    The cable works great, BUT.........

    • Written by Cheron B from Fort Pierce

    When did theres an APP for that, turn into, theres a cable for that, theres an adapter for that, theres another charge for that? An admitted Apple snob has become discontented with high price and lack of innovation. I also am concerned that you cannot freely review products here. I needed to go on other numerous sites to get user reviews. My MacBook works fine but I have had to buy numerous cables, adapters and add ons to get it to work the way I need. For $1299 on the MacBook I think the cables, etc. should come with it. Apple! Get it together!

    Works great! Also, reviews on here are for THE PRODUCT, not your opinion

    • Written by Christopher C from Seattle

    As I mentioned, this product works excellently. I've unfortunately seen a lot of people write "reviews" only to vent about how they don't like this or that about how apple runs things. That usually has nothing to do with how the product functions. So from a product perspective this is awesome and therefor get's 5 stars. Even if I don't appreciate having to buy a new cable, oh well!

    Works great!

    • Written by Corey F from Fayetteville

    Notwithstanding Apple’s monopoly on USB-C-to-Lighting cables, I don’t mind. Comparable third-party units incur nearly equivalent damages to one’s wallet. I maintain that $19 for a lasting cable is fair, and I’m content that I can finally fast-charge my iPhone X with a third-party USB-IF-certified USB-PD power supply and Apple’s USB-C-to-Lightning cable!

    They don’t hold up

    • Written by Edward N from NORTH HOLLYWOOD

    Every single Apple power cable I’ve used has ended up with the white plastic outer cover fraying, exposing the wires. They usually start exhibiting this problem after a year of use. Aftermarket cables that use braiding are highly superior. Apple needs to beef up their power cables. Exposed wires could lead to a short that fries the device.

    Pretty great.

    • Written by Magnus G from spring

    I received this product last year on Christmas Day. It pairs perfectly when used with my iPhone X and iPad Pro. Using it with the 29W adapter delivers VERY fast charging speeds. After having it for over a year, it it just now starting to wear down. Sort of disappointed that I have to buy another one. Only problem is that the cord could be a bit more durable. Strongly recommend.

    Stopped working after 8 days

    • Written by David M from SANTA CRUZ JUVENTINO

    The only benefit of this cable is to be able to charge the phone using fast charge. Data transfer speed is the same as the USB-A kind. It’s convenient using newer macs that only have this port.

    Poor value

    • Written by Ryan W from Westlake Village

    This is a review of how well the product works and the value it provides. I've had this cable for about 6 months now and it works as expected. However, the value proposition on this item is poor. This shorter cable costs $20. The USB-C charger you'll also need to buy is an additional $50. That means you're spending $70 minimum to charge your iPhone somewhat faster. The value of this product, cost vs benefit, is questionable at best.

    Good product!

    • Written by Kerry B from Walla Walla

    I really like the Apple cables and other accessories, and have no regrets buying them. I wish they were lower priced, but really, how often do you really need to buy them? You get what you pay for! I read reviews on products, they have this problem, that problem. “DON’T BUY THIS, but for some reason, I never have these problems. I have problems with cheap after market accessories, but I shouldn’t be too surprised about that.

    Great product that delivers

    • Written by Mark C from Los Angeles

    I own this product, Fast charging made easy. Power delivery fast charging is amazing and guaranteeing 50% charge in 30 minutes with iPhone 8,8+,X,XS,XR,XS Max. Anker, Aukey sell some of the best and affordable third-party adapters that supports Power Delivery with fast charging. The only third party USB-C cable right now that certified is Anker PowerLine II USB-C cable. Apple is durable and work great. I recommend this!!

    Not the best!

    • Written by Dhruth K from Sharjah

    I bought the product with high expectations, thinking about Apple and the company's genuinely. However, it turned to not work properly and whenever I connected it to my MacBook Pro, it didn't even charge my Xr for half the time. I recommend Anker's cable as it is much better.

    DO NOT BUY APPLE CHARGERS

    • Written by Francesca P from gig harbor

    Apple chargers break so quickly. They work for about a month then stop working even if you take VERY good care of them. Apple has been very aware of this problem and has chosen not to fix it. I recommend buying an off brand I phone charger that has a warranty on it. It is much cheaper this way as you do not need to keep buying these chargers that stop working in a month.

    just received my cable today and synced my Brand New iPad Pro with a Brand New iMac seems just as slow as the normal lightning to usb cable will see how it works with the XS Max. Still love my Apple Products 19.00 cable should've came with a 1,700 and up computer or a 1,300+ phone..

    Very premium feel and build

    • Written by Khloe D from Auckland City

    This cable feels and looks much more premium than its previous version. (Lightning to USB cable). The protector where the lightning connector has increased making it easier to pull from your mobile and the cable is a little thicker. The pricing is the same as for a standard Lightning to USB cable also. I also highly recommend this cable paired with the 18W USB-C Adapter to fast charge iPhone 8 & 8 Plus and later.

    Good, but cumbersome and restrictive

    • Written by Lucas W

    The cable works well, and fast-charging is helpful, but it's cumbersome. Unlike Apple's previous chargers, this cable trades the standard USB-A plug for a USB-C plug, allowing it to connect to MacBooks and the new iPad Pro. This also means that it can ONLY connect to MacBooks and iPad Pro's, unless you decide to spend $80 on a wall adapter, but that's another issue entirely. My biggest complaint is the length of the cable; it's just too long. The shortest available length is 1 meter, which is more than 3 feet long. A long cable is helpful, if you want to charge your phone from across the room. However, as said above, there isn't a reasonable power adapter. Most people are going to charge their phones from their MacBooks. This forces you to wind the cable into a massive coil that takes up most of your desk. Then there's the power bricks. Personally, I bought this cable so I could sync my phone to iTunes without having to use an adapter, but at this point I'm considering going back to using a dongle. I'd love to take advantage of the fast charging without having to use my MacBook, but despite Apple leading the charge with USB-C, they only make two compatible power adapters. Both of them are massive, both of them are expensive, and both of them are sold separately. This just isn't common sense. Honestly, you're better off with a USB-A adapter. Fastcharging isn't worth the frustration.
