    Shake my pockets apple

    • Written by CYRINTHIA M from Staten Island

    this is the fourth charger i've bought within a year. I purchase apple warranty when I bought my Ipad pro 10.5. I thought the charger would be covered under warranty, nope it's not. 80.00 plus tax( for four chargers within the year i had to purchase) and student discount doesn't apply with charges. yeah apple your chargers are garbage! do better!

    This is the last time

    • Written by Joe L from Brooklyn

    I have been trying to backup my data with these cables (about 8 of them) for the past 4 hours and yet it keep breaking connections.

    This is the last time I'm using lightning cables to backup my data. If Apple refuse to adapt USB-C for the next generation of iPhone, I will go to Android. Period.

    I have about 20 of them through these years. All lasted less than 6 months. Apple must work very hard to ensure these cables to break as easy as possible. If they have Apple care for these cables, I'm pretty sure they will shutdown less than a year.

    Apple’s Worst Product

    • Written by Yasmin G from Ipswich

    I’m a loyal iPhone user. But the chargers are ridiculous, at the smallest wrong move when it’s connected to your phone it snaps inside the phone (happened to me multiple times in fact). And for price, you wouldn’t think you need to be buying multiple chargers a year - let alone the price you just payed for your phone or iPad.

    In conclusion - Apple please change your chargers, thank you.

    Overpriced and poor quality.

    • Written by Neeleigh S from market harborough

    I can’t count how many usb cables I have gone through with an average lifespan of less than 6 month. Where it is frayed wires or the lightning end snapping, the overall quality is appalling for the price. Apple must know this and yet they continue to produce a sub-standard product for a premium price. I have tried other brands but whilst some work initially and are more stronger and more durable, inevitably Apple control the market by making their devices “incompatible” to other brands. I love my Apple devices but seriously Apple, sort out the accessories or allow us the option to choose alternatives that are better and far cheaper.

    Had insurance, wouldn't replace the cheapmade to fail charger cable!

    • Written by Joy E from New York

    The charger cable blinks on and off along with the lovely melody of ding (off), ding (back on), ding, ding ding! That goes on for 5 minutes every time I plug it in. I have to bend it and move it till it connects and begins charging.
    I'd been adjusting the cord and found its sweet spot (before the rep came over) so they said they couldn't replace it and just dismissed me. So the dinging continues until it stops working altogether. Such a low, way to scam an extra $20 off every buyer. They make them to fail so they get a real windfall of the repurchases. Imagine how many replacements they sell!

    Don’t buy

    • Written by Kelli C from Federal Way

    I have owned 3 or 4 of these and they always break within the first month. The rubber splits at the point of connection, creating a short every time. Find an off-brand cable because these are cheap AF!

    It keeps discharging when I charge

    • Written by Morinsola T from Sabo

    I got this charger cord in June and roughly a month into buying it the charger started to malfunction, it keeps discharging when I plugged in especially when I charge with my MacBook, if I had know I would have just gotten the ones off eBay that cost even less, at least I would know it’s my fault but after getting the original from the Apple website here in America ,I regret wasting my $20. Y’all should get it right with these cords. The reason I bought this was cause my old one started to open at the charging point like it was expanding and the plastic couldn’t handle it so it started making lines around each side of the charging point.

    Hot Spot

    • Written by Teresa S from Longview

    The Apple charger is the only cable that I have ever had that works correctly attached to my lap top so that I can use the hot spot to access the internet. I’ve used cheaper brands that supposedly have the chip, but there was always some type of problem with the cheaper brands while trying to use the charging cable attached to my lap top. It’s sad that Apple charges so much for a product that is not even durable enough to last more than 6 months with everyday use. I had to give 5 stars for performance, but if I could rate its durability it would have been 1 star.

    This charger will not die !!

    • Written by Domenic C from Newtown Square

    I got this charger when I purchased my 5c. So, almost 5 years ago! I got a new charger when I got a new phone (two years ago) and was going to use this one as a spare. I ended up putting the old one in my car “temporarily” until I could get another one. However, this charger never stopped working! It has taken a beating for sure but, it’s the best charger I’ve ever had. I recommend it 100%. I won’t buy from anywhere else!

    JUST NO.

    • Written by Sami Al H from Grugliasco

    These weak cables are 20 bucks? Seriously? Never buy these. Go for the anker ones. You will find them on amazon. Those are about 5-10 bucks cheaper and the quality is way better.

    Most people are writing horrible reviews. But most people just dont take care of them, personally I take care of them and I’ve been using the same charger for 3 years. TAKE CARE OF YOUR CABLES.

    Utter trash

    • Written by Colleen M from Royal oak

    I’ve never had a cord that hasn’t frayed or stopped working. I tried to get my last one replaced, and they simply sent me to this page to buy another. Sorry, not falling deeper into the money pit. Do better, Apple.

    Intentionally Poor Quality

    • Written by Loke C from VICTORIA PARK

    Pretty convinced that these cables are of inferior quality just so that people will have to keep buying replacements.
    No different from planned obsolescence by making items that don't last.

    Beautifully Designed to FAIL

    • Written by Andrew D from Hampstead

    Well done, Apple. You have succeeded in finding another way to make lots of money by poorly making a cable and phone port designed to fail and be intermittent so that people have to buy more cables to replace these shoddily made pieces of junk. I carefully handle all my cables and mindfully plug and unplug to the phone port yet 50% of the time i have to wiggle the cable back and forth to achieve charging status and sometimes it starts charging and then stops. One day the cable is fine and the next day I plug in and nothing happens. It seems about every 6mos I need to replace a charging cable and this is the most basic item that Apple can't seem to design to last. I will never buy another Apple cable again thanks to 3rd party wireless charging.
